Col. John Matrix (Arnold Schwarzenegger), the former leader of a special ops team, is vaulted back into action to save his young daughter (Alyssa Milano) who has been kidnapped. Her life is threatened lest John assassinate a South American president. Rather than being strong-armed into such a proposition, John takes matters (and lots of guns) into his owns hands as he fights through the jungle against his enemies to save his daughter.

- The film's final action piece takes places in the fake country called Val Verde. This generic Latin American country was frequently used by Hollywood in the 1980s and early 1990s to depict a Spanish-speaking country similar to Cuba or Nicaragua, to avoid political controversy. Other films to use this country include Predator, and Die Hard 2.
