Arnold Schwarzenegger only agreed to star in this picture after much haggling in exchange of dissolving the multi-picture agreement with Dino De Laurentiis. He had one picture left with the producer and was actually much interested in doing Total Recall, but De Laurentiis objected, feeling that he was not suitable for the lead role of Quaid. Instead, Patrick Swayze was already cast before the bankruptcy. See more »

Arnold at his peak as a one-man wrecking crew as he demolishes a crime family single-handed. It reminds me of the Stallone film where Rambo takes on Russia in Afghanistan. This film has good acting though, and the ever-evil Robert Davi at his slimy best. The shoot-out at the gravel pit with "Satisfaction" playing is a classic. And don't forget the classic line :"You should not drink and bake"!
