It's an arcade-game romp done with flair.

The fun of the movie is really in its premise, its cool confrontations between Arny & villains, the cheezy one-liners and Maria Conchita-Alonso in tights!

It's not quite Network, but then it also doesn't take itself too seriously.

The licenses taken with King's original tale only serve to make a more effective movie.

The story concept is good, and the film has plenty of fun and campy moments, but it’s also a little goofy.

We can only hope network execs that are watching don't get any funny ideas.

The picture fails to please beyond its glossy surface, cheap thrills, and crazed Richard Dawson cameo. Hmm ... maybe that's not such a bad thing.

The message is irrelevant. It's still the Olympian myth, albeit in a Lycra leotard, that counts with the Arn Man.
