RARA-AVIS: Get Carter

I saw the preview for Get Carter today. I was not impressed. It seems to have a lot of car chases, fistfights and smart-ass one-liners. In other words, it looks like a typical Sylvester Stallone movie. Seems he's backing off what could have been his breakthrough in Copland.

The movie is clearly not even atempting to achieve Michael Caine's understated cool in the original. By the way, Caine is also in this one, looks like he plays Carter's boss in London. Mickey Rourke is also in it and, surprise, surprise, he and Stallone have to fight; I'm guessing it's the climactic scene.
