A sleeper you'll want to stay awake for
17 February 2000 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

This tiny feature happens to be the first fruit of Jack Nicholson's brief screenwriting career. It's a surprisingly effective and well written story of political intrigue and suspense, with outstanding Puerto Rico location work and a talented cast headed by Miriam Colon (Lone Star) and renowned TV director Gene Nelson as a professional assassin who watches what he eats. The film peters to a predictable conclusion but the first 50 plus minutes are outstanding.
