I agree with the last person who saw the movie, she's right, the slapstick humor and the guns just made this movie a lot of fun to watch. You should definitely go see it, it is a lot of fun!!

The movie started sl-o-ow, had a good middle and an ending that was predictable and a little stereotypical. The story line itself was interesting. Arnold didn't have any known actors that I recognized. I'm glad there wasn't much money put into this movie, because it wasn't worth much. I spent too much money on it myself between my ticket and popcorn. The upcoming previews were good.

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.

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.
