Omnyrasaid on Thursday, August 21, 2014 12:01:24 AMI was caught off guard by how gory the movie was, but I thoroughly enjoyed the dialogue and natural sounding banter at points in the movie. I kept thinking to myself that this was smarter than the usual Arnold movie and wasn't merely cartoonish violence. His character was deeper than just a wrecking machine with big arms and he actually seemed to be acting. Whoever complains about too many F-bombs has never been in the military, a band or around any group of "brothers" for very long.
Bata-mansaid on Wednesday, July 09, 2014 1:12:22 PMI agree with you Roeper. The ending was satisfactory, but the cast, the banter, the story and the direction by David Ayer was top-notch. @Logan Hickman, even End of Watch had a lot of F-bombs and racy dialogue!
Let's hope Arnie brings his A-game to the upcoming Terminator movie!
Cheers from Pakistan
Kevinsaid on Thursday, April 17, 2014 11:44:35 AMThe worst plot ever. They broke into a cartel safe house and did not arrest anyone or take any money or drugs. They only stole money (which came up missing) and blew up money while their bosses watched from across the street. Read that last sentence again. Then the agent who actually was killing team members didn't actually steal the money. Why? What was her motivation? Leaving her husband for a guy driving a Corsica. I will skip over all the other crap that made no sense (like the shoot out in the woods that May or may not have happened) and jump to how a woman can ride in an open trunk of said Corsica during a high speed chase and crash and not wind up on the pavement. Geez was this a stupid movie.
Logan Hickmansaid on Thursday, April 17, 2014 8:27:31 AMI agree with Roeper, though I wouldn't rate it quite that high. The amount of F bombs, the sexuality and racy dialogue almost ruined it for me. Putting that aside it's one of Arnold's best movies. I look forward to seeing it again with the aid of a filter through VidAngel or Clearplay when it comes to DVD.
