Tom Stern's vanity production!
16 November 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

This would be action film is so slow it almost put you to sleep. I can't figure out why MGM picked this film up for release? There are some good moments and if Stern edited a good 10 minutes of this film, it would run very smoothly. Stern plays a vietnam vet who is used by a DEA agent (savalas) to be a clay pigeon for drug kingpin (Vaughn). There is Kris Kristofferson, Arlo Guthrie songs, Doon-Buggie chase, Meredith acting like a hippie, Lawford uncredited, and I don't want to give away the ending, but it's lame. Not recommended.
