Love it!!!
6 September 2018 | by stephylu-77217See all my reviews

I don't know why this film has such a bad rating! Maybe it's because people are watching with a predetermined expectation of what the film will be like and then they get disappointed. I thought this might be another super American, cheesy line action film. But I was pleasantly surprised. This film uses great techniques. Such as first person view mockumentary, breaking the 3rd glass rule(or whatever you call it), witty but realistic banter and a non typical American ending. Which made me LOVE this film! I think this film was too clever for it's own good and the general public couldn't appreciate it. I did initially watch this because I am an Arnie fan (it's so good to see him in films again) however his role was great and he didn't need to be present from the beginning because its about what's appropriate for the sake of the film. Arnold's character being aloof in the beginning made his character mysterious and more believable. I loved it! It's great! I 100% recommend a watch!
