Directed by

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in Mark L Lester's action-thriller as John Matrix, a retired US special forces commando whose daughter Jenny is kidnapped by his ex-colleague Bennett. To free Jenny, Matrix is presented with a simple deal: he must assassinate the democratically elected leader of a South American country so that Bennett's employer, the ousted president, can regain power. Failure to comply will result in the girl's death. However, our muscled hero has other ideas. He pretends to go along with plot, but it's not long before he launches his own ferocious counteroffensive, aided by an initially unwilling, off-duty flight attendant called Cindy. Film4's six-night season continues over the Easter weekend, with triple-bills offering out-of-control action, wild rides, extreme performances and crazy comedies that spring endless surprises.
