The main problem with the movie is that the devil is presented as being practically omnipotent. He can control people's minds, survive explosions and is unhurt by gun shots. If this is the case, why doesn't the devil just kill or control Arnold as soon as he meets him? If the devil wasn't as powerful, the movie might have been a little better, but not much.
There are also scenes that draw unintentional laughter. The one that stands out for me is a scene where a little fat lady kicks Arnold's ass in a New York City house. She throws him around like a rag doll and tries to crush him with a piano.
In addition to his beating by a little fat lady, Arnold also suffers a brutal beating and crucifixion by a bunch of satan worshippers, but a few scenes later he's as healthy as a horse and ready to kick butt. I wish I had his recovery ability.
The action sequences are nothing special either. They've all been done before in better movies than this.
Gabriel Byrne does a bad New York accent. Kevin Pollak cracks a few jokes, but doesn't do much else. And Rod Steiger plays a priest spewing out a bunch of religious nonsense.
Skip this one.
