The Expendables

August 13, 2010
The story isn't bad. A woman is dedicated to her people and she is involved in an assassination attempt against someone she knows very well. We won't plot spoil by saying who it is, but it turns out to be a bit surprising. She is loyal to her country and decides to stay after a failed attempt to [...]

Rambo

Mickey does not want Rocky to mix it up with Lang, believing Lang is too tough to defeat. Rocky suffers a personal loss as well as losing his [...]

Rocky ll

June 15, 1979

There is language scattered throughout but two strong profanities prevent us from approving it as a family-friendly film. Hopefully a filtered [...]
