Colonel John Matrix (Arnold Schwarzenegger) has retired and is living with his 10-year-old daughter in the country. However, when he refuses to help right wing extremists install a dictator to lead a Latin American country, they kidnap his daughter. Rash. Very rash. Die Hard screenwriter Steven E De Souza ensures there are plenty of bon mots to punctuate the bloodshed as one-man army Matrix unleashes hell on the despot and his minions with everything from rocket launchers to circular saw blades.
