User Reviews

Pure product from the seventies.

At first, I thought it was a pilot for a further TV series, in the mood of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE. And not because Peter Graves plays here a character very close to the Jim Phelps'one he had in the famous TV show. A good caper film, very interesting for anyone like me who likes all the old series from the sixties and seventies . Nothing really new here. A witness for the mob is kidnapped and federal agents try anything to get the witness back to custody. And many scenes remind MISSION IMOPOSSIBLE ones. Entertaining, but not awesome although. Stephen Mac Nally plays here a very convincing mob leader. Clu Gulager is tremendous as an archer recruited to escape the witness.

There are many more TV movies or episodes of this kind.
