Arnie is back!
Fun, entertaining full of action with Arnold as sherriff in a godforsaken hole somewhere near the Mexican border on his way to his retirement. Do not expect a thoughtful story because sometimes laughable how it proceeds. But it’s purely about the action. Various gunfights, with bullets flying around in abundance. If only most policemen were like him in this film. Crimes would be resolved rather quickly.
Two truckers in a cafe plus a dead old farmer and Arnold knew immediately that there was a connection and things would go wrong real soon. There’s an amusing pursuit in a cornfield that ends with a heroic fight … For me this is the ideal movie for a Saturday night. But it’s abundantly clear how badly the acting talent of Schwarzenegger is. He had too much text in this film and would better limit himself to pure action.
I’m curious if he’s going to show up in other movie in future.
