DIRECTOR: JOHN MCTIERNAN
CAST: ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, BILL DUKE
When people use the term “80s action movie,” what they’re basically thinking of is this chef d'oeuvre of the type from Die Hard director McTiernan, a buffet of meme-famous biceps and heavy ordinance in which an American rescue team plunges into the Central American jungle, freely slaughtering enemies with superior firepower before finding themselves in the crosshairs of another alien invader. Schwarzenegger leads the team, backed up by an ensemble including Jesse Ventura and a scarily intense Duke, defoliating the forest with his minigun blazing.
Screening as a part of Bill Duke.
