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.

When Mikey is kidnapped and held for a ransom by ruthless crime boss Eddie King (Nicolas Cage), JP turns to the brothers' old pal Sal (John Cusack), a plain clothes detective for help. In order to rescue his brother, JP must risk everything and unleash his vengeance against King's relentless army of gangsters.

  • 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.

    Jan 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.

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

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