During the Cold War, an American lawyer is recruited to defend an arrested Soviet spy in court, and then help the CIA facilitate an exchange of the spy for the Soviet captured American U2 spy plane pilot, Francis Gary Powers.
This was an interesting little movie that talked about the U-2 incident that took place in May 1960. Lee Majors was certainly not the Six Million Dollar Man here. If his acting did not convince us that he was Francis Gary Powers, his haircut in prison (which really looked like vintage Soviet) did. Noah Beery Jr., who played Powers' dad, was also quite effective.
Maybe the movie isn't exactly a prestigious production, but it is certainly a watchable and interesting one. The producers deserve credit for producing something that is based on a historical event that was an important one in the Cold War era, instead of something that is trashy. It is definitely worth watching.
