I have a soft spot for Sly and I will probably watch this, at least while folding laundry or cooking or something.

But this review slayed me:
When you order Unbreakable from Wish.

In the genre of movies where a loner, junk-repairing, child-befriending garbageman turns out to be a secret badass, which is better, Samaritan or Clean?

Trick question, they're both shit.

So did anyone watch this and not know the "twist" of Stallone's identity as soon as they finished the backstory montage?

Unbreakable? More like Unwatchable amirite.

(Sorry to be so predictable but no, this is really bad and I went into it knowing it was bad but I didn't know how much of bad it could be bad. Also the boy is just terrible.)

I didn't know the twist. I also think it wasn't bad, it's just not particularly good. Sly was definitely the best part, but the bad guy was written and acted reasonably decently as well. Kid was written a bit too much with the "annoying kid" trope and the rest of the characters were pretty thin, though.

All in all not something to rave about, but not bad either.

Apple Juice on Cereal.

Does anyone need to say anything more?
