Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
It’s silly 80’s fun. If you can look past the mediocre special effects (it was 1986 after all), the cheesy script and the maybe-slightly-racist characters (again, it was 1986), this movie ends up being pretty amusing. It’s more of a comedy than an action movie and thankfully Kurt Russell really commits to the over-the-top silliness of it all.

Final Grade: B-
