My Review
While I was a huge fan of the first two movies this one was a little weak. However, I will give credit to them tying the entire story together and leaving open the possibility of future films (please, don’t make any more).

The film does seem that it was quickly put together and even though they did tie in the entire storyline of both previous movies. I just felt like this was a “make it to finish the story” movie and add in some fancy special effects.

The whole crane truck scene was awesome, that had to be the best action sequence of the film. Arnolds one liners were reused from previous films including Commando.

I believe that if you are a fan of the first two this is a worthwhile for a rental or cable viewing to finish up the story. I am glad I didn’t spent $10 to see it in the theater.
