Thoughts: I still remember seeing the 1995 adaptation of the popular comic starring Sylvester Stallone. A messy affair and box office dud, the film strayed too far away from the character fans came to see so they rightly gave the film a thumbs down. A second go-around in 2012 is poised to right some of those wrongs…in 3D. Even I am growing weary of the 3D boom – the trailer makes this look like a darkly lit shoot ‘em out and that doesn’t always lend itself well to the 3D universe. A less teen friendly R rating should give this a nice little boost for those that like their actioners les sanitized.
