The pic's chief pleasure lies in its store of funny lines, which Stallone tosses off with genuine brio.

No one here seems to notice that there's not much going on, including Mr. Stallone, which somehow makes it easier to watch.

A wilfully old-fashioned, oddly soothing sprawl of cool cars, heavy weaponry, chain-link fences and cackling crooks.
