Arnold Schwarzenegger takes on the devil in one of his weakest performances to date. He plays ex-cop Jericho Cane (honestly, that's his characters name), who must protect a young woman or the world will face Armageddon.
It's all a load of theological action nonsense which isn't particularly memorable, mostly because it isn't particularly good... but it does feature a scene where Arnie is beaten up by an older woman, so there is a little tinge of novelty.
