“Schwarzenegger went from The Terminator to the human equivalent of boys’ action figures… Occasional suggestions that the tongue might be slightly in cheek include the risible bonding-with-small-daughter fishing trip under the opening credits and pronounced homo-erotic badinage with his final-reel adversary. ‘Think of sticking your knife into my flesh – and twisting it,’ Arnie hisses at Vernon Wells, the leather-clad, handlebar-moustached heavy, who might just have come from a Village People lookalike contest.”
Trevor Johnston, Time Out Film Guide
