Badguys kidnap an ex-soldier's daughter; he doesn't cooperate.

Yes, it is terrible. Terrible, terrible, terrible. It's also the most fun I've had watching a movie in a long time. And not only because I'm laughing at its expense (although there's plenty of that); it really is a genuinely fun movie.

From the box: In this early action classic that features his unique blend of thrills and offbeat humor, Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as retired Colonel John Matrix. The wx-head of a special command strike team, he's forced back into action when his daughter (Alyssa Milano) is kidnapped. With the help of a feisty stewardess (Rae Dawn Chong), Matrix has only a few hours to overcome his greatest challenge: finding his daughter before she gets killed.

1985/Color/90 minutes/Rated R
