Storyline

A powerful action thriller, ARSENAL tells the intertwining stories of the Lindel brothers, Mikey (Johnathon Schaech) and JP (Adrian Grenier), who had only each other to rely on growing up. As adults, JP found success as the owner of a construction company, while Mikey became a small-time mobster, mired in a life of petty crime. When Mikey is kidnapped and held for a ransom by ruthless crime boss Eddie King (Nicolas Cage), JP turns to the brothers' old pal Sal (John Cusack), a plain clothes detective for help. In order to rescue his brother, JP must risk everything and unleash his vengeance against King's relentless army of gangsters.

Extreme Bloody Violence
28 March 2017 | by larrys3See all my reviews

Nicolas Cage portrays another over-the-top cartoonish character here, as he plays Eddie King, a sadistic and psycho mob boss who talks like he's always constipated and sports a horrific looking hairpiece. He decides to kidnap the screw- up brother (Johnathon Schaech) and extort his straight arrow successful brother (Adrian Grenier) for 350K.

Often in the film, there's extreme brutal bloody violence, sometimes in slo-mo, and, as expected, lots of explicit language and on screen drug use. The movie is directed by Steven C. Miller with a first-time screenplay from Jason Mosberg.

Overall, unless you like intense bloody violence or wants to laugh at Cage's character here, I don't really see the point in one viewing this flick.
