Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Why draw the line between "so bad it's good" and a pedigreed artistic success?"
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"Mesmo que o roteiro insista em soluções fáceis e pouco verossímeis e que o clímax seja prejudicado pelo pouco potencial cinematográfico de um campeonato de queda-de-braço, Stallone envolve o espectador com seu carisma habitual."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Stallone gives an impressive performance"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Stallone, for whatever inexplicable reason, continues to pile on the dramatic dribble in yet another pointless movie mishap"
‑ Frank Ochieng, TheWorldJournal.com
"Poor Sly! He doesn't even know if his last name is Hawk or Hawks!"
‑ Michael A. Smith, Nolan's Pop Culture Review
"Not enough ass-kicking, but the world does need at least one film about professional arm-wrestling"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
