Good, solid actioner.
12 July 1999 | by (Blacksburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Good, solid thriller-diller from Republic. Lamont is effective, but why is this English-accented guy working for the US government? Helen Talbot is GORGEOUS, and Lorna Gray as the bad girl is not far behind. George J. Lewis gets a chance to be the "brains" bad guy, and does it well, but after five or six chapters you get plenty sick of his constantly playing the Moonlight Sonata (don't you know ANYTHING else?). Wally Wales is an adequate lantern-jawed henchman, and all of Republic's best stuntmen show up more than once, usually after being killed off earlier, to bust up the furniture in a slugfest. All in all, a fun romp!
