Arnold Schwarzenegger gets the good-guy role here, in his first movie after finding cult success with
. Although he still looks a little awkward with anything but the most rudimentary dialogue, he makes for a spectacularly destructive hero here, playing a former special forces colonel called back into action when his daughter is kidnapped by an old adversary. Dan Hedaya is an engaging chief villain and there's a spirited turn from Rae Dawn Chong as Arnie's unwilling partner. Mark L Lester is a no-frills director and his set pieces pack an explosive punch.
The daughter of retired special forces officer John Matrix is kidnapped by an old comrade-in-arms, now in league with a deposed former dictator. The tyrant plans to use the girl to force Matrix into assassinating the head of the country he once ruled, but is unprepared for the lengths to which the veteran soldier will go to rescue his child. Action adventure, with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Rae Dawn Chong.
