Arnold Schwarzenegger dominates this blockbuster mix of action and off-beat humor as Col. John Matrix, ultimate soldier and one-man army. Matrix used to be the leader of a special commando strike force that always got the toughest job done. Now he’s retired and living under a new identity with his 11-year-old daughter, Jenny (Alyssa Milano). But an old enemy wants him for one more job. To bend Matrix to his will, he takes Jenny hostage. Standing between Matrix and Jenny is an array of punks, killers, and one of his own ex-commandoes, and a fully equipped private army. Matrix figures the odds are even. He does have the help of Cindy (Rae Dawn Chong), a feisty stewardess he happens to abduct along the way, and General Kirby, who trained him. But Kirby is always one step behind. And Matrix has only hours before they’ll send Jenny back to him in pieces. When the pressure’s on, Matrix only gets tougher. And nothing’s going to stop him now. Heaven help anyone who gets in his way. Directed by Mark L. Lester (director of B-Movie Bingo
classics SHOWDOWN IN LITTLE TOKYO and CLASS OF 1999).
