Could have watched Kelly Gang but instead chose this...
Fair trade I guess???
This is my first time watching this in full (only had vague memories of watching it as a kid in pieces, probably only got as far as the Police shootout).
Now that I’m older, I realise that this is basically a slasher movie with a robot, final girl and all.
It’s kinda funny to see how that suddenly transformed into one of the biggest action franchises of all time.
Arnold stole every scene he was in.
The practical effects, whilst…
The first two acts were good, at the least decent fun. The pacing really tested my enjoyment at times, so many things happen so quickly no wonder people are saying the plot is convoluted (it isn’t).
But... the final act finally manages to slow everything down and allow the characters to truly breathe, and the scale truly increases to a scale I don’t even think Endgame truly matched. (Yeah I just said that).
The final act honestly saved this movie…
