Arnold does a good job with his acting in a roll other than being a bad-***terminator. Took my 12 year old son and he really liked it.

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.

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 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.
