Taut, no-nonsense sci-fi action which has just the right amount of characterisation and plot development to keep you engaged. The action sequences aren't all that memorable. What you're really coming for, though, are the one-liners, the undeniable charisma of the movie leads and the many thrilling segments.
Compared to many an 80s action flick, this has aged really well.
Said "You're an ugly motherfucker" seconds before Arnie, laughed out loud. Action Classic.
Amazing amazing amazing!
And because nobody has said it here yet....GET TO THE CHOPPA!
