Just watched this, thought it was pretty good. The 80 minutes flew by, and it was ultra-violent as I hoped for (good) but used a heck of a lot of obvious CGI (bad).

Those mercenaries didn't seem particularly well characterised though! Although I did love the line that the English bloke says to the Burmese villain when he's getting a kicking.

Just watched this last night, thought it was excellent , nice to see a true 18 flick with OTT violence in amongst the sea of 12A films. They didn't try to drag it out either.

Spot on Wasn't a huge fan of the previous 2 installments, but having read a few excellent Blu-Ray reviews took a punt & glad I did as I really enjoyed this one.

Well worth a watch for action fans

Just watched this on Blu Ray last ngiht for the first time, loved it. Totally OTT, but brilliant. I really felt myself thinking "Stop winding him up, he's getting angry and he's going to kill you"!

Just got round to this recently.

Have to agree with the last few posts, over the top brilliance!

I was pleased with the short running time, I don't think I would have been interested if it was dragged out.

Spot on about the running time... Too many films are too long these days, this was nice and tightly cut.

Though all the Sly fans on his fansites still complain we didnt get a three hour film, it would have been twice as good you see

Been enjoying the featurettes actually... a lot more in depth and interesting than the usual PR rubbish with most films.

Agreed about the extras. I watched them all - even the music one

Shame they cut out the scene with his original knife as I always wondered why he wasn't still using it. Even re-watched with the commentary and found it interesting too, one of the better commentaries I've listened too.
