Total waste of time! Really wanted it to get better, but it never happened. And, Arnold's acting just sad (not that he's in much of the movie).

Hugely disappointing! I picked this up because it had Arnold in it, so it HAD to be good, right??? WRONG! We kept watching, expecting it to get better, but it never did. The characters were unlikable, the story completely far-fetched, and even Arnold's acting wasn't great.

This is the worse Arnold Schwarzenegger movie I have watch. Arnold has been in other non serious comedy movie and did an excellent job such as Kindergarten Cop and Twins. So I was really let down by this B rated movie. I would assume that with Arnold having a net worth of $400 million net worth that he could have passed on this movie but maybe the producer black mailed him or is a friend of his who is just starting out. But this movie has damaged Arnold as an actor. A much better movie done around the same time but is actually worth watching is Accident Man. Not sure what the director of Killing Gunther was thinking unless it is an inside joke among the actors which most of the audience would not get. Not worth watching.

Terrible. AVOID.
For the first 70 minutes, a dull mockumentary (and looks like it was shot on video?), THEN to see Arnold for only 5 or 10 minutes, and we finally get a few laughs.
It is not worth the hour-long wait and build-up before Arnold appears.
Bobby Moynihan is usually funny and great, but this movie is a stinker. Him and the Governor should have refused to work on this one.
Best part was the closing credits, with "Arnold Schwarzenegger singing Earthquake love" (the song is on youtube).

I loved the first act of the movie. It was energenic, fresh, and compelling. The problem is that the last 2 acts are a trainwreck and not in a good way. And "starring Arnold" is a bit of a stretch. It's a shame because it had a chance to be a great film if it was good all the way through. It's almost like MacGruber meets Best in Show... about Hitmen. Watch the first act and you'll be entertained.

Ridiculous, non-sensical, amusing movie.

Unlike a previous comment, and maybe it's a generational thing, I thought the first part of the movie was junk and almost turned it off. Then, once Arnold made his appearence, the movie improved considerably. If you like your humour on the darker side, then this movie might be worth a view.

A big disappointment if you're watching this to see an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, as he doesn't even appear until 1 hour and 8 minutes into the movie and this is only an hour and 25 minutes long movie.
Whatever happened to truth in advertising?

Gunther is maybe the most feared hitman working in the industry today. He's a fxcking asshole. You know, it's nothing personal, right? It's all business. You want to be king, you have to kill the king. And right now Gunther is king. But very soon, I will be the guy who killed Gunther. And you're gonna help me prove it. -Why are you gonna succeed when so many others have failed? 'Cause I put together an unstoppable team.

Your generation is so entitled. You want immediacy. "I want to be the best, and I want it right now." Well, that's bullshxt. You know how I became the best? I did it the old-fashioned way. I earned it. How do you think I learned to ram my fist into someone's stomach and to break their goddamn spine? Or to rip out their heart and to eat it before they even know they're dead? I've been doing this for almost 50 fxcking years, so I deserve to be the best. And you deserve what you got. So what happens now? My documentary needs an ending. So the question is, will it be a happy ending?
