Unlike most action movies that Arnold has done in the past, this one has much more humor and doesn't take itself too seriously. Plenty of action, and even a good fight scene at the end. Fun movie that every guy should see.

I don't know what is the matter with the critics. They only like artsy-fartsy movies, I guess. This movie is just plain fun! Why can't we just go and enjoy a good old fun romp?
Lots of funny lines, action, slapstick.... you get the picture. Not Academy Award material, but let's face it.... most of them aren't. Just go for the fun of it.

It's been some time since we've seen Arnold starring in anything worthwhile. Despite having a few minutes in the "Expendables 2", this is the first time in a while since Arnold took command of a movie. Other than looking his age, unlike his buddy Stallone, Arnold seems to have a knack for giving a performance suitable for someone twenty years his junior. He manages to show some emotion as he is the Sheriff of a small town that has a motley crue of deputies. Forest Whittaker plays the usual serious law enforcement official and Johnny Knoxville has a few good scenes that provide some comic relief. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the bad guy who is played by some guy that looks more like he's a backup dancer for Ricky Martin. Solid action with some great looking car chase scenes and minimal down time. If your an action fan you'll enjoy this movie.

I thought the movie was good, being a long time Arnold fan. I'm not going to say that it was his best movie, but better than some of his other movies. I enjoyed it and I feel like it was worth going to the theater to see. I will also be buying this when it come out on Blue Ray. Good to see Arnold on the big screen again. He's a bit slower, but still tough. I would say go see this movie and if your an Arnold fan like myself than it will be a must see !

I DID NOT WANT TO SEE THIS MOVIE - had to go with my wife. Movie opens up with Arnold's one liners, my wife and her sister are laughing and I'm completely bored. As the movie progressed it started to get my attention. When the first fire fight with the Sheriff's happen's, I was hooked - they did a good job. I enjoyed it.
