Storyline

Four medical missionaries are being held captive by the country that they were visiting; it seems that they treated some of the rebel leaders, so the government has deemed them enemies of the state. Of course the U.S. wants to help them but they feel that a rescue operation is not the best way. So, they hire some people to steal the country's national treasure, which is currently on display at their embassy in Washington, so that they could have some leverage on the President of the country who is holding the Americans. But it's not going to be easy. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Loved it (when I was ten)...
12 February 2002 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

How absurd, to comment on a 25 year old t.v. movie unavailable on tape or disc and likely to remain so. Has this ever appeared, anywhere, since its original broadcast? Oh well... I loved this when I was ten, for what that's worth. My enormous fondness for the late great Victor Buono is largely based on my dim memories of his performance here. While planning the theft of the great gold whatsit from the super-secure wherever, Buono flamboyantly demonstrates to this cohorts the power of misdirection, suggesting they use stage magic trickery to steal the doohickey. He is voted down, and instead we are treated to a suspenseful but stereotypical high-tech middle-of-the-night robbery attempt, the kind where they always use the aerosol spray to detect where the laser-beams are and if so much as a drop of sweat hits the floor the alarms will go off. Something goes wrong, they barely get away, and in the end they do it Victor's way, stealing the thingamabob in broad daylight in a crowded room, bringing joy to the heart of at least one chubby would-be magician.
