Rutger Hauer. Handsome face. Athleltic. European. Ice cold emotions. That's about it. This is just another of those movies that doesn't showcase any real skill. It's about a pilot for hire who decides to take the illegal money from those who hired him and run with it. Unfortunately, it's really easy to find him and they do. He uses all sorts of ploys to avoid these guys and they seem to work. He takes some beatings, faces death a few times, hooks up with a beautiful woman who helps him along the way. The question is "Where is the money?" That's his trump card. It goes on and on and what is a relatively short film seems much longer. There is much grunting and pretty bad dubbing, and an anti-climactic finish. There is a little star power here, but it's not worth much.
