Retired captain, John Matrix, gets his daughter kidnapped. To get her released he has to kill an old friend who happen to be the president in a banana republic. Matrix decide not to. He has eleven hours to track down the bastards who forced this upon him and blast the shit out of them.

One of the iconic action flicks from the 80’s. Arnie is flexing his muscles and blasts the baddies from here to eternity. It’s easy and it’s violent, but it’s too mainstream. Remember this one to be more cynical. It’s a good time action, but I’d rather go for some Chuck Norris, Chow Yun Fat or Charles Bronson. Fun though, and Arnie delivers!
