In an attempt to best convey to Arnold Schwarzenegger how he should capture the essence of his character, Walter Hill suggested that he watch Greta Garbo's performance in Ninotchka (1939) and emulate her character. Schwarzenegger complied and, according to Hill, got a handle on his character right away. See more »

Arnold Schwarzenegger movies should generally be taken with a grain of salt; switch your mind off, sit back and enjoy the ride (or cheese, take your pick). But, truth be told they are usually not that bad - very few will ever be regarded as some of the greatest movies ever made but they are generally enjoyable to watch (Commando, Total Recall, True Lies, etc.). This cask of crap is something else. I trust that James Belushi is ashamed of himself for his performance in this movie. He was ridiculous. Every time he appeared on screen I hoped a bad guy would pop up and shoot him. His performance is so bad I was convinced he was trying to make a statement to the director about the fact he was to be killed off during the film, but it didn't happen. Sometimes life disappoints, just like this awful movie. It's not even laughably bad, it's just bad.
