Vengenance Upon The Viewer

Sorry this remake of Get Carter is a dud. The entire plot surrounds many unsavory characters. Also, little depth is provided and too many unanswered questions remain. Why was Sylvester Stallone's character estranged from his murdered brother? And why after five years does he take such an aggressive murdering stand to avenge his murdered brother's death and niece's rape? Even Syrus played by Mickey Rourke questions this.

Little is explained about the events that led to Jack Carter's brother's murder. A few scene's of gruesome flashbacks and endless chatter of this disc that the brother had do not get to the point of what led to this murder.

The nerve racking car chase and fight scenes even seem hard to follow. The final confrontation between Stallone and Rourke is strangely scripted with Rourke beating Stalone bloody. Five minutes later Stalone stagers to where Rourke is dancing with sleazy women and is able to muster the strength to beat down his adversary. Its difficult to interpret what Michael Caine's role is in this fiasco.

All of the above adds up to a one star rating that takes more painful vengenance on the viewer than any beatings that Carter(Stallone) lays down on his hapless victims.
