Director: Jee-woon Kim
Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker

Lionsgate Film Studios will go out of business if they continue producing flops like this. Early in the movie it becomes apparent why movie goers have stayed away in droves. This is a prime example highlighting that movies containing high octane car chases, plenty of shootouts and constant blood curdling violence will not always be financial successes. Produced for a meagre US$45 million itís only managed to recoup a disastrous US$27 million at the box office. The storylineís not the problem: An escaped fugitive is on the run trying to traverse the American border into Mexico with an army of helpers. They have to travel through a small sleepy town where Arnold Schwarzenegger is the sheriff. He vows that the fugitive will not get through and enlists the help of 4 deputies to help him.

The major downfall in this picture is poor old Arnold whose acting is appalling to say the least. Heís never been a good actor, but his time out playing politicians has further repressed his acting skills. Old and withered he looks so out of place and the obvious facial nips and tucks have done him no favours. All his scenes are unconvincing, awkward and very uncomfortable to watch and his involvement in the high action sequences pushes credibility to new heights. Audience members seemed to chuckle and laugh whenever he appeared on the screen and even his trademark corny one liners were forced in their delivery.

Comebacks rarely succeed, especially for those who leave showbiz, become failed politicians and then have highly publicized scandalous extramarital affairs. With the failure of this film, and 2 more ready for release, studio bosses must be stressing out. Arnie may soon be forced to choose a new career... heís done the Hollywood star thing, played politician... perhaps a career in marriage counseling.
