What a Car!

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!

Arnold is Back!

By DragonBornN7

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.

Typical "Arnold"

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.

Poor Aw-Nold!

By IWantMyMoneysWorth

Lightweight and slow to get rolling silly escaped drug-lord yarn (high-tech escape, low-tech Chevy-commercial getaway) which eventually gets to and features the Star of the show: Bullets, Blood-spatter and Explosions (now so lazily relied upon in lieu of genuine creativity I bet the Hollywood fat-cat insiders non-nonchalantly refer to it as "BB&E"), and ends with the now-obligatory final hand-to-hand isolated duel to the finish. Nothing here (plot, screenplay, acting, dialog, pacing, location) to draw one in except the memory of Aw-Nold in his prime. He still has presence and deserves a place, but it should be (hopefully next time will be) in something more worthy than this. Forest Whitaker's character would have been better served if it had been played by an unknown or up-an-comer, as the amped intensity of his tormented acting style overwrought/overacted the role with way too much intensity (which interestingly made him better suited for the weakly played bad-guy leader role).

Way Better Than Expected

Took my 16 yr. old daughter. We go to movies all the time, more than we should. Neither of us are Shwarzenagger fans perse' but we both were very entertained. This movioe had just the right amount of action humor and seriousness that when I saw an article that cut Arnold up for being all done, I had to write a review. I would be tempted to see this again. I definately will rent the DVD. 4 and a half out of 5 stars for your monies worth. Good for you Arnie!
