Arnold Schwarzenegger , as promised, is back in a violent, fun, car-stunt-filled shoot’em-up
Yes - 65 year old Arnold Schwarzenegger still has it. This one was tailor-made for the ex-Cali governor as his comeback starring role, after leaving office. And if it’s mindless , violent entertainment you’re after, this one fits the bill.
Arnold plays an ex LAPD cop who’s now the sheriff of a sleepy Arizona town on the Mexican border. Well, it’s sleepy til the most notorious Mexican drug kingpin breaks out of custody in a very creative Vegas escape, racing to the border in a Batmobile-like car along with an FBI hostage who looks like she came from a Victoria’s secret catalog. In fact, that’s true of all the young unknown female co-stars.
The whole movie is one big car chase with tons of violence and a lot of laughs, thanks in large part to Luis Guzman and Johnny Knoxvile. While at times the story line has more holes than swiss cheese, it’s exactly what you’d expect if you have total recall of “The Terminator” legend.
