OK, I watch a *lot* of movies, to the point where I see most surprise "twists" coming and is something that my wife hates when I mention the foreshadowing elements after we watch a movie. This one caught me off guard. I think because it combines old school 80's style action-hero movie story telling with some current style dark & gritty cinematography, in glorious 4K HDR with surround sound 😁, I allowed myself to just sit back and not pay attention to the clues. Plus there's the fact that it's Stallone as the leading role so it'd be easy to assume that the twist wouldn't apply to his character.

Yes, it'd be easy to call this one 'formulaic'. That still doesn't stop it from being a decent action movie. (y)
