John Matrix, the former leader of a special commando strike force that always got the toughest jobs done, is forced back into action when his young daughter is kidnapped. To find her, Matrix has to fight his way through an array of punks, killers, one of his former commandos, and a fully equipped private army. With the help of a feisty stewardess and an old friend, Matrix has only a few hours to overcome his greatest challenge: finding his daughter before she's killed.

Fewer and fewer movies will be being shot on actual film, because fewer and fewer theaters have film projectors. Unless there is an art house movie theater nearby, any watching of older, or less well known, films, on actual film, is pretty much impossible. When exactly is the last time that an mature or obscure film was available at the local multi-theater megaplex? If whoever has a film copy of that older, obscure film, does not think it is profitable enough to put it in DVD, there is little which can be done about it. Soon, the only way to observe films of any kind, will probably be through on-line streaming. According to your point of view, this is either that natural progression of technology, or it's the end of the world.

Let the story, acting, stunt-work, script, cinematography, production value, and just about everything else all dribble away while you sit back and enjoy watching Arnie kill more than 80 antagonists in about 80 minutes. _Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
