Storyline

Young Danny Madigan is a big fan of Jack Slater, a larger-than-life action hero played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. When his best friend, Nick the projectionist, gives him a magic ticket to the new Jack Slater film, Danny is transported into Slater's world, where the good guys always win. One of Slater's enemies, Benedict the hitman, gets hold of the ticket and ends up in Danny's world, where he realises that if he can kill Schwarzenegger, Slater will be no more. Slater and Danny must travel back and stop him. Written by Alexander Lum <aj_lum@postoffice.utas.edu.au>

Arnie sends himself up brilliantly
28 July 2003 | by (cambridge) – See all my reviews

This would have been the movie of the summer had Jurassic Park not been released at the same time.

Arnie sends himself up brilliantly and the it never takes itself seriously. My god the people who slate this movie are sad as it seem that they search for art when it's not even been thought of by the writers. Smile and give your faces a rest.

Great action scenes which are obviously fake. Charles Dance is also superb.
