I saw this movie last night and was pleasantly surprised. It's not what I would have expected from Schwarzenegger. It was very much an action movie, but it was a quieter piece more along the lines of No Country for Old Men
. And yeah, it looked like something that could have been directed by Michael Mann. It had his look and feel. Between this and Escape Plan
, Schwarzenegger's comeback has been pretty good. He's maturing as an actor by acknowleging his age, by playing characters that are a little more well rounded and by not not having to be center stage all the time with the best lines. His latest efforts shouldn't be dismissed as more of the same.

Arnie clearly acknowledges he's getting older in the movie and even makes comments on being an immigrant.
I wasn't sure if he said "you give those
immigrants a bad name" or "you give us
immigrants a bad name."
