What if Schwarzenegger was James Bond with a wife and kids? Nearly two-and-a-half hours of edgy 90s balls-to-the-walls action in all its sexist/sexy glory. James Cameron behind the wheel, making every scene entertaining to the max. Jamie Lee Curtis lookin’ top-notch. Bill Paxton as a hilariously sleazy used-car salesman. Islamic terrorists in Miami with nuclear weapons. At times jaw-dropping stunts and special effects. Beautiful orange explosions; beautiful glass shattering. Two full-on climaxes. What more can you ask for?
