Movie Preview: Arnold on the way out in “Killing Gunther”

So what has Hollywood shoved down our throats too often and for too long over recent decades?

Hit-man movies –as thrillers and comedies. And Arnold Schwarzenegger movies. The aged body builder’s slide into irrelevance probably won’t be halted by a Saban Films release. “Killing Gunther” is about a team of also-rans (actors, as well as the characters they play) trying to get “the world’s #1 hit-man,” the top dog in “the hit-man industry.”

Only in the movies do either of those things exist. Only in the movies is Arnold still working way past his expiration date. Why hasn’t he reached for cable? Oh. Right. His movies, with rare exceptions, are violent, lazy paycheck pictures for mouth-breathers.
