I eat green berets for breakfast!
I’m a huge Arnold Schwarzenegger fan, and this is one of my favorite Schwarzenegger films. It is one of the definitive 80s action films and one of the greatest guilty pleasures of all time.
Arnold plays John Matrix, an elite commando who must come out of retirement because a criminal group kidnaps his daughter, Jenny, played by Alyssa Milano. The group forces him to travel to South America to bring an exiled dictator back to power, if he ever wants to see his daughter again or that is what they think. Knowing Arnold, BULLLLSHHIITTT! What transpires next is Arnold basically declaring World War 3 on the criminal group in order to get his daughter back. From the music to some of Arnold’s greatest one-liners ever, everything is so awesomely cheesy and over the top. As the movie progresses, Arnold is an increasingly unstoppable force and creates an unforgettable finale among action films.
This movie is often laugh-out-loud funny and just plain awesome. If you are a Schwarzenegger fan and/or an action movie fan, this is a must see.
