The Film Stage -
In light of how riveting Cage is in this film, it is a shame that he doesn't appear more. Though he is far and away the best part about Arsenal.
The Hollywood Reporter - Sheri Linden
Ratcheting up Eddie's malevolence in ways large and small, Cage delivers the latest installment in his singularly unfettered brand of over-the-top screen madness.
The A.V. Club - Jesse Hassenger
Anything legitimately affecting about the movie bleeds out, and Cage delivering a blood-soaked monologue or simulating the sound of a burned esophagus isn't enough on its own to turn Arsenal into the gory, borderline rococo thriller it starts aiming for around the halfway mark. It's the rare case of a bonkers Cage performance counting as too little, too late.
Variety - Joe Leydon
Arsenal, a pulpy crime drama about desperate characters and excessive carnage in Biloxi, Miss., is memorable primarily for some random scraps of loopy dialogue, the credible evocation of a sleazy demimonde rife with white-trash lawbreakers, and yet another Nicolas Cage performance that could be labeled Swift's Premium and sold by the pound.

Arsenal (2017)

A powerful action thriller, ARSENAL tells the intertwining stories of the Lindel brothers, Mikey (Johnathon Schaech) and JP (Adrian Grenier), who had only each other to rely on growing up. As adults, JP found success as the owner of a construction company, while Mikey became a small-time mobster, mired in a life of petty crime. When Mikey is kidnapped and held for a ransom by ruthless crime boss Eddie King (Nicolas Cage), JP turns to the brothers' old pal Sal (John Cusack), a plain clothes detective for help. In order to rescue his brother, JP must risk everything and unleash his vengeance against King's relentless army of gangsters.
