    Better than decent. But if Stallone (who wrote and directed the flick) had pulled a few punches to the heart, it could have been truly worthy of that first, glorious movie. show more

    Defies all expectations with a low-key, technically stripped-down production that really does come close to capturing the heart and soul of the original. show more
