    Couldn't find the old thread. I doubt this is really true.

    Well, at least he is trying to do a movie that sounds better than this 'Governator' idea. That idea is just hilarious, you would think he would to emerge with a project that A. put the image of him as Governor out of the audience's minds for the duration of the flick, and B. Make them forget about his most famous role., but no, he goes for a project that is designed to do exactly the opposite of that. That is just pure McBain.
    This, em, sounds like his 'Copland'. But that could be good. As long as it is not exactly the same idea, it might do him some good to get in some good influence from that movie Stallone made, to get his mojo back up and running. Playing a guy who is not the all perfect action hero, unsure of himself and trying to figure out what to do as he goes along, instead of being on the ball from the off and with every situation.

    I think he fits better than the Oak. At least from what I've heard about the movie so far.

    Hmmm interesting. I would imagine though that Arnold is picking his first appearance back in a major acting role fairly seriously. I mean it could be one huge pay day.

    Yeah, it was a little long, but a really excellent film overall. If you happen to have Netflix it might still be on there.

    YES!

    Who should play the cartel leader?

    I think forget it's a Schwarzenegger film and remember it's a Jee-Woon Kim film and get someone high caliber as the villain.

    As someone living in South Korea, it was pretty much inevitable I would. Yes, it's a quirky terrific film. Maybe a bit derivative of 'G,B and U', but with enough twists it can stand on its own.

    I'm glad Schwarzeneggar is back. I'm so selfish, my first concern about his divorce and life-shattering scandal was it would sidetrack all his cool new projects. Now if only his animated series and 'Cry Macho' would come back into production.

    Oddly enough I heard that the screenplay isn't that good...

    Often. The Terminator, Conan The Barbarian, Predator and Total Recall have very good screenplays behind them.

    He's not Stallone, Van Damme or Seagal, Arnold worked with real talented people for most of his career.

    When he worked with mediocre craftsmen like Davis, Hyams or Mostow the results were rather... plain.

    Schwarzenegger is always stellar. He's either an awesome action hero or even in the bad comedy films he's always hilarious even if it is unintentional(Batman & Robin).

    It's about time he got back to da choppah.
