This movie is ultra-violent.

I thought it was awesome.
I would agree, it's a typical guy movie with tons of testosterone, but who's to say the opposite sex may also enjoy it?

As an action movie junkie I had read theatrical reviews on this one a long time ago and was really excited to see it. However it just did not live up to the hype. Aside from the terrible A/V presentation, the action was good but nothing new and most of the cool stuff was in the trailer(s). Overall I was a bit let down. Perhaps my expectations were set to high from all the rave reviews I had read, but this one just didn't do it for me.
For the reasons you were let down by it, I enjoyed it immensely. I didn't see any previews until I watched for the first time last week. I had no expectations.

Wasn't an audio fest, but overall, enjoyable.

I went into watching this expecting nothing outstanding except lots of fighting. Was not disappointed.

I watched this over the weekend and thought it was ok. Based on reviews and what I heard I was close to buying it...glad I didn't, definitely a rental.
Bad PQ, colors looked washed out.

Rented this and will probably buy it if I find a good deal on it.
It is about as close to a literal non stop action movie as you are going to get!

Thanks for the review, Peter!

Looking forward to seeing this one and intend to purchase if the price drops a little more.
