Arsenal (2017)



Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for Arsenal

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (12)

The only thing that is less convincing than Cage's prosthetic schnozz is the car crash of a plot.

February 26, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Nicolas Cage delivers one of his all too frequent cringe-making, extra-screamy, dial-a-psycho performances in this ultra-violent Southern noir.

February 23, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

One to avoid.

February 23, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

The combined charms of Nicolas Cage and John Cusack might just have been able to save this made-for-VOD thriller, but they are both left on the sidelines.

February 20, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

"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.

Audience Reviews for Arsenal


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