Good description, sir! That comment should be on the cover of the movie.

I think the filmmakers tried too hard to distance themselves from the 1995 movie. While watching it, I could almost hear them scream:
"Look at this, guys! People are skinned alive, eyes ripped out...blowjobs! This is not the Stallone movie, this is hardcore! Look at all the sex and blood!"
I was also depressed by it... But maybe the sequel will be better.
