    ★★★★½

    I love this movie unabashedly. This has everything: over the top machismo, homoerotic overtones, a cute sidekick who does more than just mince while the hero does his business, quotable quips, zealous use of weaponry, and Arnold Schwarzenegger carrying a goddamn oak tree. It succeeds at everything it tries to do and excels at many of them.

    ★★★★½

    Sam Fuller’s interest in dissecting racism and toxic masculinity was literally decades ahead of his peers and we should celebrate him more. Yes, the plot is pretty thin, but the story is rich.

    Rough around the edges but I don’t give a single shit: midwestern college students in 1973 made an entertaining, coherent feature-length movie that has helicopter shots and car chases in it!

    ★★

    Disappointing as hell because a film based on a comic literally about metaphor and symbology is directed so hack-handedly with no attempt at visual storytelling beyond the very basics.
