A display of stereotyped sick characters. It could be like American Pie, but they forgot to emphasize the humor. Or anything else. I do understand however why Feldman was in it. At his age, this must have been fun. Parents will hope life isn't really like this though.
I was looking forward to seeing an action-packed movie with such a cast and such a setting. Unfortunatley I found it boring, confusing at times (enemy killers are totally uninteresting to keep track of), and beneath the present possibilities.
In the line of other 'realistic' movies, this one easily keeps up with its illustrous counterparts. As a viewer you also feel the pressure, and though it looks clumsily made, it's really good good. Nothing too terrifying, or maybe psychologically.
Ignore the fact that Arnie played in this before, and you'll be able to enjoy this barbaric movie, where slaughter and abuse are the reigning customs. It moves fast and will never leave you wanting, especially if you go in with an open mind.
