Have to say I am more excited for this than I am The Expendables 2. Schwarzenegger is the reason I love movies so much and I think this looks like a pretty good movie to start his comeback.

That looks great, cheesy as hell, but that's what i want from an Arnie movie

Hopefully Johnny Knoxville isn't in it too much though, i like him on Jackass, but as an actor...not so much...

Trailer doesnt show much, but looks interesting for being directed by Korean Kim Jee-Woon (A Tale of a Two Sisters). Could be pretty good.

"How are you Sherrif?"
"Ohlled"

I smiled when he first appeared in the trailer.It's nice to see feature on screen again (excluding the Expendeables, which i haven't seen). The last stand looks okay, a standard action film. Not sure if i will see it.

Looks just like Walking Tall with Knoxville reprising his role.

Yeah. Same with Harrison Ford.

Arnie doesn't look too bad but I wonder if his heart is still in it after such a long break.

Yes he;s back............and was met with general apathy and disinterest in the US. In it's first 7 days of release it's taken an embarrassing $8,533,945.

I enjoyed it,, not amazing but a fun film for Arnie to make his comeback, he takes the piss out of himself, in an action film with humour, and I really liked the last 30 minutes or so

Just been to see it and really enjoyed it, mindless entertaining fun.

I could happily watch it again.

I quite enjoyed it as its a mindless action film which is a bit of fun.Its worth a watch if you are a fan of Arnie.I agree with most reviews that have given it three stars as its nothing special but its decent!

Saw it last night and as a massive Arnie fan i really enjoyed it, it's nothing special particularly, but it was a decent action film and it was great to see Arnie back in a leading action man role (it's nowhere near his best film, but it sits comfortably with his other films). If you're an Arnie fan then you'll enjoy it, especially the last half an hour or so. Johnny Knoxville was actually tolerable too which was surprising.

It's a shame that it bombed so badly in the US, it really didn't deserve to.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film.

It's great entertainment & 2 hours of mindless fun with Arnie doing what he does best, lots of action with great humour.

Arnie is looking a tad old, although I get the impression that his older looks were emphasised for this particular part.

I've heard that it didn't do to well in America & when I went to see it, I & my girlfriend were the only 2 people there.

It will be a real shame if this films flops because it really isn't that bad at all.

That's a shame.

It was not a bad film at all.

It was a typical Arnie action film; high on entertainment, average plot, good humour, mixed with some cheese.

The only Arnie film I've ever really loved was the first Terminator. Now that is an outstanding picture.

It's inconsiderate of them isn't it?

I don't mind them getting old but I do mind them pretending that they're not.

Frank Skinner summed it up for me when he said regarding the last Indiana Jones film: "Is it just me or are Indiana Jones and Freddie Krueger getting closer together?"
