This movie didn't pretend to be completely serious in trailers or other marketing. It was Arnold and some friends having a good time. Even the #2 evil guy wasn't completely serious. There was plenty of semi-believable action (the car flipping the SUV was not believable), LOTS of shooting from a variety of weapons, and occasional comedy relief. Because the movie didn't claim to be serious, it tops the sickeningly disrespectful Django Unchained and the plodding Jack Reacher in my book.

Going in you knew this was going to be a shoot 'em up unreal collection of odd things. It was what I was in the mood for so off to the theater I went. The bystanders in the town were an amusing piece but frankly it gave the film a quality that may not have worked. Granny shooting the bad guy in the back was fun, could have done without the after commentary. Johnny Knoxville was funny, a bit lame at times but funny. Arnold. was pretty good, it was great fun to see him in a movie again. All in all it was entertaining. Somehow the combination of elements made the whole better than the parts.

I rate this a B+. It is a typical Arnold movie that would have worked great about 10-15 years ago. However it was a fun escape. Lots of action, cheesy lines and some funny bits. But Arnold is getting a little old for the one liners that they force out of his mouth....they just don't carry the weight like they used to. That being said it was good to see him back in action. Go and enjoy it for what it is....fun.

I had fun today and was entertained by this movie. It had lots of hot cars, explosions, gun fire and the good guys are the best with the evil guys, very evil. It was truly the good guys shooting the bad guys. Obama should watch this one.
