Arsenal

Critics Consensus

Aside from an opportunity to watch a mustachioed Nicolas Cage acting from under a wig and behind a prosthetic nose, Arsenal has depressingly little to offer.

Critic Reviews for Arsenal

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (29)

  • Nicolas Cage delivers one of his all too frequent cringe-making, extra-screamy, dial-a-psycho performances in this ultra-violent Southern noir.

  • One to avoid.

  • "You could argue that, at this point, [Nicolas Cage] is to 21st-century VOD fare what Wings Hauser was to '80s direct-to-video quickies."

  • The rest of Arsenal is dull, so why wouldn't Nicolas Cage be, too? Arsenal will make you see red, but never intentionally.

    January 6, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite solid acting (including John Cusack as a plainclothes detective), "Arsenal" is hobbled mainly by its director's histrionic tendencies.

    January 5, 2017 | Full Review…
  • 2017 already has a viable contender for Worst Movie of the Year.

Audience Reviews for Arsenal

  • Jul 26, 2020
    If they could have just dropped their half-assed attempt at a 300-esque stylised slow-down/speed-up edit, all of the violence in Arsenal might have actually come across quite well. Unfortunately, they chose to include it, which ruined literally the only good thing it ever had going for it.

    Unfortunately this was a dull and predictable movie that seem intent on doing nothing more than showing how far Nicholas Cage has sadly fallen.
