Movie Review by Movie Addict
July 3rd, 2008

We can't prevent evil by doing evil!

Favorite Movie Quote: "Something good happens, "It's His will." Something bad happens, "He moves in mysterious ways.""

After a Van Damme double feature, one wants a little dessert. What better than a dose of AHNULD Vs. Satan.

One cannot help but inject a dose of politics into this film, as the Catholic Church has a right-wing hit squad trying to kill Satan's target before he gets her. The good priest (presumably one that doesn't do little boys) cautions that "We can't prevent evil by doing evil!" Like the Bush administration, he is ignored. But our hero the Terminator, ends their schemes. Too bad, we can't have the Terminator help us, but we do have the Barackinator that will hopefully save us from the forces of evil and send Stan to hell for another 1000 years.

Whew! This is supposed to be an action film, but it is so full of parallels that they cannot be ignored. There is great sound and lots of super fireworks to this silly story of a man who lost his faith and regains it at the crucial moment.

Gabriel Byrne (Jindabyne, Stigmata, Enemy of the State) give a good performance as Satan, but one wonders how you can be a priest and the devil in two movies the same years.

Robin Tunney (Paparazzi, Hollywoodland) is very good as the object of Satan's affections.

Great support from Kevin Pollak, CCH Pounder, and Rod Steiger.

Schwarzenegger is the man!

I consider this film to be the START of the DOWNFALL of Schwarzenegger's career...

I can't agree as he has one of my favorites to come - Collateral Damage.
