This needed more wild personality and insane dialogue, but instead it's an illogical bland plot orchestrated by, surrounded by, and full of morons.

Disjointed to the point of incoherence .

This is a very good action movie, love the slow mo make all the shootings look sick.

John Cusack plays a backseat to Nicholas Cage whose presence is at times displayed in a cagey fashion while Cusack has a role similar to his more engaging one in the action thriller The Prince (2014).

The simplest way to put this film is simply slow and dumb.

Overall, the film is over the top in its violence and everything is predictable.


This movie was decently enjoyable trash for a while.

The wig and prothetic nose are absurd, but even in this pile of uninspiring bull of a film, he feels like a low level coke-head out of touch with modern styles and into gold chains and gaudy sunglasses.

fairly basic plot but who cares, i totally enjoyed it.

Yet it still disappointed, with the slow boring script and the pointless scenes.

It's too bad that this movie turned out to be a waste of my time.

Stupid because the plot is so childishly contrived and derivative you'd have to be a moron to believe it.

Dialogue was trite and contrived.

Trust me, it sounds more fascinating than it looks.

Slow and dumb .

Full of easily recognizable mistakes, plot holes and a whole bunch of cliche' bad guys (Cage) and pretend good guy Cusack).

Bland Action That Is Mildly Entertaining .

There are perhaps intriguing aspects to this, which manages to keep the film going to a particular standard, there's some dizzying action, with some fresh slow-mo shots, which we haven't seen before like a man being shot by a shotgun in his nether region.

Arsenal or southern fury is a surprising adrenaline crime and betrayal film that is much better than you think.

Generic and predictable.

To be honest it's mostly boring and meaningless.

Rivers of Blood Flowing in the Slowest of Motion Resulting in a High-Def Deluge of Jaw-Dropping, Gonzo, Grind-House Movie-Making.

Slow mo splatter gore with actors you know .

Overall, generic and predictable.

Good movie to pass the time (1.5 speed on VLC) Some shots are WAY too long (kid walking in arcade????

The final result is a poorly titled, pretentiously boring - frankly silly gangster thriller.

there's a lot of little things wrong about this film but in all honesty it was still quite enjoyable.

But, the film suddenly lurches away from the human and family element into a predictable and excessively violent action picture.

Miller's ARSENAL is a mildly entertaining action movie that is one of those films that might be worth watching if you can catch it free on television or perhaps a $1.50 Redbox rental.

Dump and uninteresting.

One of the worst movies ever.
