Movie Info

When efforts to prosecute mob boss Luigi Patrovita (Sam Wanamaker) are repeatedly derailed thanks to a mole in the FBI, the only choice is to bring in an outsider -- specifically, Mark Kaminsky (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a disgraced agent who leaps at a chance for reinstatement. After FBI chief Shannon (Darren McGavin) gives him his orders, Kaminsky fakes his death and reemerges as an ex-con named Brenner. Undercover and accountable to no one, the former Fed tears up the mob from the inside.

    Just your standard Arnie 80's action flick full of bad jokes, Poor acting and bloody action, Not a film he will be remembered for nor will he want to remember himself.

    Better then expected action revenge film

    Has a good enough time making fun of itself until things get flatly absurd... That's when Arnold takes his sweet montage-time securing a cache of weapons in a suitcase with all the right velcro straps, and then kills everyone with unflappable machine gun skills, shooting one-handed from a convertible. (Every mob guy is slower on the draw than a Quaker.) At the end, Arnold plays Bogart to Kathryn Harrold's ex-moll elegance. At the start, Irwin films a great jeep-vs-cycle chase and primes us to be scared of Victor Argo -- but I can't even remember how he left the plot. Plot? Who cares? This movie is supposed to be about action, humor and romance... In case you're wondering, Arnold stays faithful to his Darren McGavin.

    This really is a horribly made movie, it probably has some of the biggest technical issue of a major motion picture. That being said, it's just a lot of fun and classic Arnold. He has so many great moments and testosterone fueled actions, proving that he one of the greatest action stars to ever live. The storyline is overdone so much and made so honest, but you can't help liking it on at least a sarcastic level.
