Rip Roaring action
9 January 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Government agent Riley is sent by his bosses to get the goods on Major Gray, a former military man, thrown out of the service because of an incident involving poison gas. Gray has set himself up on Diamond Island and is posing a government agent in order to get a new gas. Wrecking his boat as a means of getting on the island Riley goes toe to toe with Gray and his henchmen while trying to save the inventor and his daughter. Breezy action film essentially takes place over the course of a morning and afternoon. At times too silly and a bit leisurely paced (thanks to the silly bits), this is a fast moving little confection that takes slightly less then an hour to unfold and is over before you know it. Worth a look, just be sure to have something else to watch because this is the sort thing that isn't long for your memory.
