11 Month Early Review of Arnold & Sly's "The Tomb"!

Ten years ago, I was introduced to Arnold fan Chris. From the beginning we hit it off as we both discussed our favorite action heroes over dinner at the original Bob's Bigboy Restaurant. Since then we've kept in touch and we've have several Los Angeles meet-ups (including watching The Expendables Hollywood premieres together), he's had TAFs friends and staff crash at his house and he let me read and review his film script titled RIVALS, an action comedy which was written for Arnold and Sly. Okay, now that I've reminded you of my friend Chris, let's have him come in and tell you about his theatrical adventure last night. He got to see an early screening of September 2013's most anticipated film, THE TOMB!

Chris (OakSmoke) writes TAFs:

"Just got out. Whew, it was a three hour wait to get in but so worth it. Ultimately my review: it is phenomenal! It's a very serious film with a great story and it goes deep on why the characters are there. Fantastic action! The end action was a little more original then mid movie action. Both men are seen very fit but no shirtless abs of either actor. I wish Arnold threw more punches but he does great. Jim Cavizel is the best, baddest, realistic warden you have EVER SEEN!

Also, so you know, the film totally FEELS equal screen time between Arnold and Sly...mainly because Arnold has more solo moments or with a couple other actors. Sly shot more days like you said because he has more exterior locations whereas Arnold is already in the prison. You can tell they've been wanting to work together a long time & they have serious chemistry together. It is a rough high-tech torture thriller. The movie feels long in a good way. HONESTLY, ARNOLD GOT THE BIGGEST APPLAUSE AND ROAR IN THEATRE BECAUSE THE DIRECTOR GAVE HIM A GOOD "HE'S REALLY, REALLY BACK SCENE"! The crowd went wild 3 times over him. And i'm not shittn'.

Because of their trueness in each other's performance with dialogue and acting, the authenticity of it and Arnold being such a scene-stealer, I rate this 10 out of 10 stogies. However, on an action scale vs. Cliffhanger & T-2 or True Lies, it's an 8 on the action scale. But great kick-ass scenes. I got chills to see Arnold grab that hand gun and the camera pans on him from the floor up. BAD ASS to the bone!

Way to go Arnold! You have another hit on your hands! We can't wait to see it in theaters next September. But since some movie-goers already got to see a screener and since it rated so high with the fans...let's hope the film gets pushed up to an early summer release.
