Rae Dawn Chong, as flight attendant Cindy, finds herself pressed into the role of Matrix's sidekick and potential romantic interest. She has some comic lines commenting on the action along the way. She also happens to have the right car and the right skills to aid the plot at key points.
Vernon Wells as arch villain Bennet, Dan Hedaya as the leader of the bad guys, Arius, and David Patrick Kelly as Sully are all fine villains and each added a lot to this movie. I loved seeing Bill Duke as Cooke. He has a great fight seen in this movie and is one of the best things in Predator. Fine actor and powerful screen presence. The daughter, Jenny Matrix, is played very effectively by Alyssa Milano who has gone on to have an active career in show business. Good for her!
This isn't a great movie and many of the elements here are done better in "True Lies", but Arnold is young and strong here with lots of guns, explosions, and action. If you like that kind of thing, then this is a pretty fun time.
director's cut may be better or worse)this is a decent Arnold
Schwarzenegger movie,but it has less substance and
depth(i,know,substance in an Arnie movie?)than his usual fare.this is
pretty much mindless action.it seemed to me like a movie that should
have went direct to video.the story:a former commando's daughter is
kidnapped and he has limited time to get her back alive.there isn't to
much more than that.Arnie becomes a one man wrecking crew to get his
daughter back.lots of mind numbing action and some great one liners
from Arnie.of course you know how it will end up.but in case you
don't,i won't go into detail.suffice to say an entertaining,but
lacklustre effort,compared to say Predator. 3/5
Anyway, she gets kidnapped, and Arnie has to do a contract killing to get her back. There is a somewhat funny and exciting scene about him escaping his captor and jumping off the airplane, but... WAIT a minute... JUMPING off the airplane in flight? And landing on his butt in a puddle and running away uninjured? Well, there goes the last bit of reality! (Jets need to go over 130 MPH to get into the air, it would be like jumping off a 40 story building.)
Anyway, next he meets up with a girl who he has to steal her car, and of course she gets involved for the rest of the movie. Lots of stunts involved here, an outside cage elevator in a mall... HEY didn't he do that in True Lies? Oh, no horse this time... OK its a comedy, I get it now!
Eventually they make it to the bad guys lair, where he blows up the entire compound, totally demolishing several tall buildings, and all with a few Claymore anti-personnel mines! (They must be making them nuclear these days)... anyway, I won't give away the end of the movie (ya, right...) so you'll have to watch it yourself to see if he saves his daughter!
So even if this was the least realistic movie I've ever seen, it was a hoot! If you like action, this is for you! (I took away 1 star for that AWFUL smiling at the beginning!)
In terms of Blu-Ray port, the image has been polished so it is beautifully rendered on a HDTV and the sound is clean (even though I only have a 2.0 system so I don't know if they made any improvement for the 5.1 and over lovers).
Buy it. Buy it NOW.
