Address Comments To:
The film, perhaps unintentionally, gives a thoughtful commentary on justice vs. mercy, anarchy vs. order. It teaches that justice without mercy is tyranny and that order cannot be prescribed by outside law, but only if law is written on the hearts of man. Except for some very offensive blasphemous remarks by the cult, there is no recognition that God is the final judge and that we will all stand before his judgment seat. The film suggest that man is the final arbiter of law. Yet, for its philosophical theme, this film remains just another whiz-bang shoot-em-up by Stallone, filled with murder and mayhem. Extreme caution should be exercised.
