    Review: 'Grudge Match' is 'Rocky' vs. 'Raging Bull,' But We Lose

    “Grudge Match” can’t possibly live up to its billing, which essentially pits "Raging Bull" pugilist Jake La Motta (Robert De Niro) against “Rocky” namesake Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), finally settling the bets of cinematic boxing fans everywhere. The film’s narrative echoes the problem its st...

    Watch: First Teaser Trailer For 'The Expendables 3' Whistles Online

    While the line between irony and earnest action franchise continues to blur with each successive entry, "The Expendables 3" is doing what all sequels must: getting bigger. The cast is larger, the stakes are probably relatively higher and we're sure the insurance premiums would make an actuary faint....

    Review: 'Homefront' Starring Jason Statham, James Franco, Kate Bosworth And Winona Ryder

    The craft of the B-picture has been lost. It’s been lost in a sea of audiences trained by awards shows and armchair critics to thumb their nose at straight action films, the kind of entertainment that used to be the audience’s bread-and-butter. It used to mean that you threw cash at the screen to ma...

    Review: 'Escape Plan' Starring Sylvester Stallone And Arnold Schwarzenegger

    If this were 1988, the world would stop for “Escape Plan,” which finally pairs Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger as above-the-title talents. The duo haven’t been able to keep themselves from looking backwards in recent films: both seem in denial of their advanced ages, with Schwarzenegger...

    Watch: 2 Clips, B-Roll & Lots Of New Pics From 'Escape Plan' With Arnold Schwarzenegger & Sylvester Stallone

    Seeing as how both their solo movies (“The Last Stand,” “Bullet to the Head”) fizzled at the box office earlier this year, it’s only natural that Stallone and Schwarzenegger would try to team up for an action movie. They've done just that in the upcoming “Escape Plan” and it’s the action pairing we ...

    Watch: Arnold Schwarzenegger & Sylvester Stallone Fight In Clip From 'Escape Plan' Plus New Pics

    Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone fighting is pretty much the single selling point of the otherwise bland-looking "Escape Plan," which features a title that's practically straight-to-video-bin ready. Considering these guys can barely muster a hit outside of "The Expendables" lately, they ...

    Watch: Sylvester Stallone & Robert De Niro Punch Each Other In First Trailer For 'Grudge Match'

    Well, we'll give the trailer for "Grudge Match" this much credit: for a premise that could so easily devolve into Rocky vs. Jake LaMotta gags, there's only one direct reference to Sylvester Stallone's franchise and it's actually tolerable and tasteful. So kudos. As for the rest?

    First Photos Debut From Sylvester Stallone-Penned Action Movie 'Homefront' Starring Jason Statham And James Franco

    "Homefront," a movie we had no idea even existed until literally fifteen minutes ago, sounds kind of enjoyable in a junky, nothing-else-is-playing kind of way. It stars Jason Statham, king of B-grade action movies, as a former DEA agent who returns to his home down only to get hassled by a drug king...

    Sylvester Stallone Takes to Kickstarter After Investor Pulls $250K from 'Reach Me' (VIDEO)

    Sylvester Stallone's "Reach Me," directed by John Herzfeld ("2 Days in the Valley"), recently hit a snag when one of its investors pulled $250K worth of funding out of the picture.
