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.

This film, as all of you know, is Arnold Schwarzenegger's first film since his stint as The Governator of California. He got lots of criticism for that and his marital problems, which he himself caused, but that sort of stuff should be irrelevant when it comes to an acting career. Anyways, this film is a fairly enjoyable action film. It's an old-school 80s action film with some modern sheen and style thrown in for good measure. There's nothing particularly standout or original about this film, but it's well-made and enjoyable?and, really, that's all we want for a film in January, where studios go to dispose of their garbage before the summer and fall arrives. If you're a fan of Arnold's or just fan of old-school action films in general, give this film a watch at a matinee showing in your local theater. You'll enjoy it. A 6/10.

Lots of guns, cars, blood and action: my two teenage sons loved it. Personally, I thought it was a little too long, but entertaining, if totally implausible.

Great movie! The ZR1 Corvette uses the same feature as the Ferrari in the 2007 novel 'George's Flag'. The feature is a radar system built into the dashboard. This feature allows the car to travel at speeds in excess of 180 MPH, at night, using infrared - in both cases green, for the driver to see. In the novel, the car was built to be driven by a professional race car driver to get people "out" of Mexico. In the movie, the car is stolen to be driven by a professional race car driver to get someone "into" Mexico. Either way, this feature is fiction but makes for excitement- traveling at 197 MPH in the dark!
