A retired elite Black Ops Commando launches a one man war against a group of South American criminals who have kidnapped his daughter to blackmail him into starting a revolution and getting an exiled dictator back into power.
This is one of the numerous action movies Arnie did in the 80’s, which means it’s short on plot, just look at the synopsis above, and the acting and writing are only average. None of that matter’s though, because you watch it for the action sequences, and it has them in abundance.
Nobody can deny that this is anything other than mindless violence, and it doesn’t pretend to be, it is purely an action movie that intends to entertain, and boy does it do that. The final action sequence following on from when Arnie arrives on the island is lengthy and bloody, with some great improvisation when it comes to weapons, and a load of fun to watch.
If you’re after something clever with top drawer acting, look elsewhere, but if you only want something to entertain you for two hours or less, look no further.
