A veteran mercenary is double-crossed and finds himself blacklisted into becoming a general in hell's army.

This is a very high low-budget movie. It's over-the-top, corny but only almost-fun. Some of the effects are amazing, but some are so damned bad I can't imagine how they thought this could be anything more than a middling success. From a writing perspective, it's not bad moment-to-moment, but the overall plot is a bit stupid.

This has nothing going for it but the incredible acting of a clown.

The last remaining Transformers on Earth are hunted down and taken apart for their technology.

It's fast and loose, and has a lot of explosions and such; meh.

A boy that's beaten up a lot decides that murder is both the best revenge and career. Wait, it's about the man though. Well there's narration so don't worry he's never in any danger.

Kinda funny and kinda interesting sometimes, but god damn does it drag on; it could have been done much better, and done better quite easily too.

Two worlds are connected and one of the worlds has a lot of monsters who somehow live without anything to eat and also are persistent assholes.

The actual movie starts two thirds in, and there are so many terrible writing decisions; oh god it's so bad.

Terminator 2 - Judgment Day - (1991 movie) poster

A machine goes back in time to save it's reprogrammer from another machine that was created thanks to another instance of that first machine having been sent back in time to kill that reprogrammer's mother which created the timeline that made the machines in the first place. Or something.

A great movie, although I'm not sure if it could be watched on it's own. Thankfully The Terminator - (1984 movie) is a must-watch.

Bad Guys want to blow up a shithole to make money in rebuilding.

It's okay I guess, but the writing is off and it's frequently a tired revisitation of the earlier movie.

A man wakes, reconstructed as a cyborg, and finds himself hunted by unknown forces.

A fucking astonishingly great movie! Fast, bloody and fun. It's effortlessly hilarious, and without being a comedy.

I was initially rather annoyed at the found footage-style shaky camera, but it got so intuitive so fast that it really helped me get into the character and movie. If you like bloody non-stop action movies, definitely give this movie a chance.
