VERDICT – 4/5
1) Colonel Matrix has 11 hrs. to rescue his daughter from the wannabe President of Val Verde.
2) An era-defining 80s action film with uber violence and one hell of a body count. This movie is solely running on Arnold’s toned muscle power.
3) A quintessential Arnold movie in all its glory. Every Gen X kid would’ve found a character like Colonel Matrix in some comic books, video games, or in a pulp magazine story.
Cooke: This Green Beret is going to kick your big ass!
John Matrix: I eat Green Berets for breakfast. And right now, I’m very hungry!
