Introduction to The Arrow In The Head Show
The Arrow In The Head Show is a recurring online film review show hosted by John Fallon (known as “The Arrow”) and Lance Vlcek. So you can read about Schwarzenegger’s Raw Deal Dissected. Fallon created the brand Arrow in the Head back in 2000 as a website focused on horror movie reviews, interviews, and news.
Now he and Vlcek bring their signature uncensored, sarcastic, and nostalgic style to video with this YouTube show. Filmed while drinking and informal, they offer comedic throwback analysis of classic genre films from the 80s, 90s, and beyond.
Overview of This Episode on Raw Deal
Fallon and Vlcek offer their humorous take on the 1980s Arnold Schwarzenegger action thriller Raw Deal in this episode. They focus on Schwarzenegger’s acting career at that point after breakthrough hits like Conan the Barbarian, The Terminator, and Commando.
While still a gritty, violent action flick, Raw Deal showed a different comedic timing and charm from Schwarzenegger that he would later fully exhibit in more light-hearted films like True Lies and Kindergarten Cop. The hosts analyze Schwarzenneger’s performance and the movie’s mix of violence and humor.
Context on Schwarzenegger’s Career
Raw Deal came after Schwarzenegger established himself as a major action star in hits like Conan the Barbarian, The Terminator, Red Sonja, and Commando. At this point in his career, he took on a role in Raw Deal that stretched beyond the pun-dropping muscular hero parts he was known for.
While still an R-rated violent movie, it allowed Schwarzenegger to showcase more personality, one-liners, and developing comedic wit. This range helped broaden the types of roles audiences accepted him in as he transitioned to more family-friendly comedy films while maintaining his action-star image.
