80s arnold action flick that lives up to that description in every way. the effects, the acting, the cheeseball one-liners; it’s all there. overall it’s a watchable film that is really all about the concept and themes. themes of media hysteria, fame, big brother, brutality, propaganda – the things that never get old. take that stuff out and it’s just an outdated action film with a good turn by richard dawson and an average effort from the governor.
