It's not traditionally considered a Stallone masterpiece, but I sure as hell love it.

Why draw the line between "so bad it's good" and a pedigreed artistic success?

Cinema em Cena

Mesmo que o roteiro insista em soluções fáceis e pouco verossímeis e que o clímax seja prejudicado pelo pouco potencial cinematográfico de um campeonato de queda-de-braço, Stallone envolve o espectador com seu carisma habitual.

Jason Bailey

It's cliché-ridden, wildly incompetent, and laughably serious about itself. But if you saw it at the right age, and if you approach it in the right frame of mind, it's a pretty easy way to kill a couple of hours on TBS.

Stallone gives an impressive performance

Frank Ochieng

Stallone, for whatever inexplicable reason, continues to pile on the dramatic dribble in yet another pointless movie mishap

Brian Costello
Common Sense Media

Cheesy but fun '80s action movie has violence, bullying.

Not enough ass-kicking, but the world does need at least one film about professional arm-wrestling

Sly wins the hearts of everyone again as the underdog arm-wrestling champion Lincoln Hawk. It's more a father and son movie than anything else, but no one… More

The title just barely begins to describe this.

Stallone's one of my favorite actors of all time, and this is a good movie, but not one of my favorites from the Stallone library. I prefer more action.

Arm Wrestling. Here is one of those topics where you don't see movies on everyday. Just like <i>Balls of Fury</i> did with ping… More
