Seriously?...
9 January 2016 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Okay, well I had never imagined that Samuel L. Jackson would be a movie such as this, but here was. And the reason for why he was, I cannot even begin to fathom. But this 2011 movie was a swing and a wide miss, a stinker if you will.

The abomination that is supposed to resemble a storyline was so shallow and pointless that it hardly even mattered. A guy who loses his wife and unborn son in accident is kidnapped and brought in to fight in an online death game, where he fight against overwhelming odds.

The storyline was so pointless and stupid that the only thing keeping the movie anywhere near afloat is the fight scenes and the overall stupidity of it all as it becomes a farce. And everything is so predictable that even a blind man sees it coming a mile away.

As for the acting in the movie, well let's just say don't get your hopes up too high. The actors and actresses had very little to work with in "Arena", and it reflected on the overall movie.

I bought this movie because Samuel L. Jackson was in it, but I was sorely disappointed. And I must say that this was a blemish on his track record of movies.

In my opinion then I would suggest that you give this 2011 movie a wide berth and pass on it, because it is utterly mindless and not particularly entertaining in any sense.
