Robocop and Terminator are about equal for me in quality, but if I had to choose only one, I love Robocop more. Robocop and Total Recall really affected me when I was very young and when movies don't have that level of brutality it bothers me, there are some exceptions of course. Like Taken or The Losers. But The Raid, US: Regeneration, Rambo, Hobo with a Shotgun and Drive (in a couple moments) are the only things recently that have come close to the insane brutality on display in those great Verhoeven films, that I can think of the top of my head. Also Robocop had great dark humor, which is one of the best aspects in my favorite film of all time Miller's Crossing, along with the albeit brief but effective Verhoeven levels of brutality on display in Miller's (just like in Drive).
I would love a Ninja 2, as long as like Adkins said it's darker and more violent. I love that fans on twitter/facebook and probably the overall buzz of The Raid has achieved the overall notion that we want darker more violent films. That's one of the positives of those formats I guess, and a great action movie that is a game changer like The Matrix was years ago. I could see the American remake of The Raid starring Adkins and hopefully, if they could get him over here, Tony Jaa. My idea for it would be like Red Heat, but much better than that film, and of course more action.
Hunter, you should check out Wake of Death (as Molti already said). From your short list though I guess I'd agree with Moltisanti again and say Double Team. Also as Macready said even Replicant is pretty good (plus Rooker!), and JCVD's only terrible films are the ones he already mentioned. I also really like Nowhere to Run and Desert Heat. As Mac said he doesn't have that many bad films in his filmography, especially if you enjoy watching the guy in general and can laugh at/with him as well. Like with Seagal.
I gotta thank Dolph Lundgren here for letting the truth come out about what was (possibly) going on with the Expendables 2 rating, I had my suspicions. Although this whole fiasco brings up an important point for all action stars (with clout that is). Don't kowtow to the studio when you have the power to control the rating situation. You could potentially alienate your fanbase (i.e. the people who support you even with your worst films) just on the oft chance to get an extra dollar from some 13 years olds, who could sneak into the film anyway, or who probably don't even care about your old guys on a mission movie. An example of a great pg-13 movie that a huge action star did was Arnold's Last Action Hero, here the rating was appropriate for the material. The pg-13 rating shouldn't be forced on all material to make a couple extra bucks.
Just beat the great downloadable game I Am Alive for the first, but not last time. Can't wait to play through again and try and save all the survivors. It's much like The Road, but mixed with a simple climbing sim. The climbing is more like it was in Shadow of the Colossus, and the combat is simple to pull off yet complex to master, because each encounter is like a puzzle of who and when to kill, or sometimes not to attack. Also supplies are important, deciding when to use them, or keep them to later give to a survivor.
Might watch a thread favorite tonight, Deep Rising. Then tomorrow I might help work on some fight choreography for my friend's indie action short film he's working on.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
