This movie is more interesting when considered in juxtaposition to the nation going bug nut crazy about guns. Not because of the obvious violence inherent in any Schwarzenegger movie, but because of the character Lewis Dinkham (Johnny Knoxville). Dinkham is the person gun control advocates are afraid of: the small down gun nut who is hiding an arsenal. Well, it’s not really the guns he’s hiding, as it is all the ammo. Dinkham has his guns right out in the open, literally on display, in his gun “museum” (open every third Thursday of the month from noon to 3 p.m.). Dinkham’s collection saves the day. After he adds the condition the government need not know about his stash, of course.
I thought Hollywood was run by liberal Jews? If so, something’s all screwy here. Dinkham saving the day doesn’t sound like the message the left is espousing. I suppose a gun fetish is ok when one is crazy in the lovable buffoon way and not the Ted Nugent way.

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.

Arnold wasn't kidding when he said "I'll be back!" This movie is action-packed and full of impressive firepower. Just go see it and you won't be sorry.

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.
