This movie is also a classic. The only lame part was the "I'll be back" part. It was also cool because, at the time it came out me and my family were living in Bakersfield. It was just cool to hear my city's name(at the time)on a movie.

Hey D-Bob get on topic.

Anyways this movie was a good movie. But far from classic. As I have said many times before. If this was made as the book went this would be a great movie.

The only thing great about this movie was Jesse Ventura was in it.

I wouldn't have minded seeing Arnie squaring off against Jeese Ventura. Now there's a celebrity deathmatch. . .

willam defoe could take them both...

in fact, you could blindfold him, chop off his legs, and break all the fingers on both his hands.

he would still win by a large margin.

I agree. But the book's ending, powerful as it may be, probably would not be filmed today due to September 11 (Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't have a problem seeing the book's ending on film, but I can see why some people might).

Re: run fool, run

it was ok, formulaic arnie movie: not one of his best; not one that stays in the mind as say T2, Pred or True Lies.

The film also felt tacky and cheap in terms of sfx, costume and backdrops.

And yes it would have been difficult for the film to follow the book verbatim given the ending in the latter. But I think the screenwriters could have given it a bit more effort in the character-building stakes
