If your looking for a good, cheesy flick with plenty of action, then yes, this was a pretty good movie, and worth seeing at the show. I wasnt expecting alot from this movie, as I myself feel that Arnold is just a par actor, nothing over the top, and feel he has gotten worst with being off for so long, but did find myself liking this movie, the mix of good action, and offbeat comedy made this movie all that much better. The story itself was pretty good also, nothing really to far fetched. The acting ranged from pretty good to just ok, but feel for this type of movie, thats the kind of acting you want, something more in the form 0f 80's tv action program acting, good but cheesy at the same time. I'd give this 2 1/2 stars out of 4 myself, and would recommend seeing this on the big screen if ya have nothing better to see. Feel free to add me as a fan to see my latest reviews if you were happy with this one ............ Enjoy :)

Wasn't the best movie I've seen in a while. But worth seeing if you're an Arnold fan. He did an pretty good job for someone who's pushing 70!! But I really think he needs to hang up the "Action Hero" titles & try some other types of roles.

It was a good story about a convict, car chase and small town sheriff, it did have some good actors, Forest Whitaker was great, and Johnny Knoxville was funny, and Arnold, was just Arnold, nothing great.

I LOVED it. It was action packed and funny. Want to see it again. Can't wait until i can purchase it for keeps. I also liked the meaning of some of the charactors standing up for what is right, like not being bought off to let a bad guy go free. Greed is such a bad thing these days. Can't wait to see another Arnold movie. Glad he's back.

This is Arnold's first big leading role since he was the Govenator of California [he had only cameo parts in the Expendables] . It's directed by Jee-woon Kim and this is his first American film [you might have seen his 'A Tale of Two Sisters' or 'The Good, The Bad, The Weird'] . Here , Arnold plays a small town sheriff that left the big city life of the LAPD for a more quite lifestyle . Forest plays an FBI agent that is transporting a Mexican drug lord [and , of course , looses him] . The drug lord plans his escape to go right through Arnold's small town [for some reason , it's the only route to Mexico] and that's when the fireworks begin . Jaimie is one of Arnold's deputies , Johnny gets deputized [he has some firepower that comes in handy] and Peter is a henchman that works for the bad guys . Let's see , there is action , comedy , fast cars and explosions and even some future one-liners ["I'm the Sheriff!"] . What's not to like ?
I would buy it on Blu-Ray.
