I was interested in this a while back but that trailer ain't exactly one to get a hard on for.

I'm surprised we didn't have a thread for this movie before.

As I recall, there were major reshoots particularly because test audiences hated the ending. It also seems the entire plot was changed because, as I recall
Spoiler:
there was no doubt that Schwarzenneger and his entire team were corrupt. It was supposed to be about crooked cops being picked off one by one in a war with the cartel they screwed over. I assume the original ending was to have Schwarzenneger getting offed. This trailer makes him look like a good guy.

I'll at least rent it.

I'm down for seeing two terminators working together.

yeah, looks like it should be fun.

I too thought there was already a thread for this, back when it was called Ten, but I couldn't find anything while searching.

I'll see it because of Schwarzenegger but honestly that trailer didn't get me overly pumped about seeing it. Looks okay but almost looks like something that would be straight to DVD/Blu-ray if it weren't for the names involved. I kind of felt the same way with Bullet to the Head though and ended up not hating that so I guess you never know. I think Schwarzenegger's best since his return so far has been The Escape Plan.

Looks cool, I'll check it out, but dang what the hell is up with Arnold's douchebag haircut & comb over?

And wow, Detective Linden is in this too.

This movie looks horrible. Getting old sucks and seeing Arnie a shell of his previous self is proof.

I forgot to say that this looks like next season's Sons of Anarchy.

Fuck, Merielle Enos is RIPPED!

It looks like another generic action vehicle that Arnie is going to sleepwalk his way through. Can it be worse than The Last Stand?

Give him a break. He was away from movies for almost 9 years. Yeah he's past retirement age, but obviously he still loves making movies. If you're bored of Arnold, then go see something else. I'm still a fan and I'll watch whatever he puts out until he's in a wheelchair.

I know you planned it.

Also my crystal ball ain't so crystal clear, but something tells me this movie is a mirage.

I'll check it out.

Ayer's law enforcement escapism movies are hit and miss.

Good question. The Last Stand was one of the worst movies this year.

Yeah I've actually enjoyed both of Arnold's come back films so far to be honest. The Last Stand wasn't his best by any stretch but it was fine for what it was and a good movie for him to come back with I thought. I really was surprised by The Escape Plan though. The plot was ridiculous (but who watches action movies like this for the plot and takes it seriously?) but it was just a fun time and really enjoyed the interaction with Arnold and Sly. Also I thought the twist was pretty original and I didn't see it coming. I also thought it helped that Arnold wasn't trying to hide his age so much and had the gray hair and whatnot.

Obviously if you watch any of his new stuff and try to compare it to his older stuff it's going to be hard to match it up because he's older and has been out of making movies for quite a long time. I think he's still got the charisma that makes him likable enough to watch though.

Failed if only for the fact they didn't use the Beastie Boys song in it.
