Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to his breakthrough role as the mythical muscle-bound hero but the kitsch magic of the John Milius original is missing this time around. However, the requisite number of ugly villains, beautiful temptresses and doe-eyed heroines are present and correct, Schwarzenegger doesn't have much acting to do and director Richard Fleischer keeps the often violent action flowing smoothly. Look out for Grace Jones as a lethal warrior.
