there a re many twists in this movie, but it is a typical Arnold Schwarzenegger film action-adventure. But, now, he has more dialog. And he has a believable character!
And the classic scene just before he kills a bad guy who says: who are you?
He replies: I'm the Sheriff!
Forrest Whitaker is no dummy either, when he researches his own people, and finds that one of them is a bent nail...and they are arrested for helping a known cartel member to escape. There is plot, there is the solution and there is the action that follows!

I really liked this: I thought Aaahnld showed that he is capable of acting. Journeyman psycho Peter Stormare was cheesily good as always as the cartel's head honcho's henchman. I also liked what (non-English-speaking) Korean director Kim Jee-Woon did with the western movie elements he pays homage to (Stormare's weapon in the film is a vintage Colt Navy revolver or something like it).

This turned out to be much better than i ever expected it to be period.Coming from an oriental or Asian director this is more than reasonable because they supervise the GREATEST ACTION SET PIECES OF ALL TIME.Their effort to make me laugh via Johnnie Knoxville is so LAME,it ain't even funny (pun intended).The action more than makes up for this though overall period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Arnold got the good lines and delivered with his unique cadence; a violent crime story balanced with humorous scenes.

Not as dumb as I'd expect. This features a drug kingpin making an escape and a run for the border. A small town sheriff who used to be in the LAPD decides to stand in his way. The film is very violent, as you'd expect, but more entertaining than I would have thought. The one problem with the film is the casting of Johnny Knoxville, truly one of the most obnoxious human beings on the planet. Why this complete prat gets roles is beyond me, but every time he's on screen, it's like fingernails on a blackboard.

Not fantastic, but a good action movie with car chases.

This was a typical Arnie actioner. It was okay, but nothing he'll be remembered for. If you're a fan of action movies, you'll probably like this one. Schwarzenegger is getting too old to play these type of parts. He should stick with comedy, like he did in Kindergarten Cop.

Cortez: You know what, Sheriff?
All you have to do is let me
walk across that border.
Hell, twelve thousand
Mexicans come across every day.
You shouldn't mind if one goes back.
What do you say?

Ray: You make us immigrants look bad.
