Terrorist organization Black September is planning an attack on the United States. A woman called Dahlia is the one overseeing the operation. She was in the Middle East with the other members of the organization, discussing the operation when some Israelis came in; the leader, Major Kobakov had his gun on her but didn't shoot her. Kobakov then informed the US what they found. Though they don't know what their operation is, Kobakov assures them that it will be devastating. So, with FBI man, Corley, they try to find out what it is before it's too late. But they both have different ways of doing things, and since Kobakov is the visitor, he is warned to watch it. Dahlia's "partner in crime" is Michael Lander, a Vietnam P.O.W., who is psychologically scarred by that experience, thus making him very susceptible to her machinations. Written by

On 3rd February 2002, around twenty-five years after this movie was made, and within six months of "September 11" (2001), the US Department of Homeland Security officially made the Super Bowl (which is the major sports match threatened by terrorists in this film) to be a National Special Security Event (NSSE). This is defined by Wikipedia as being "an event of national or international significance deemed by the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to be a potential target for terrorism or other criminal activity".

About midway through, as Fasil is being pursued across a beach in Miami, he fires a shot at the agent pursuing him. The agent falls flat in the sand and the bullet strikes right next to him, kicking up some sand, and creating a very loud ricochet(!) sound effect. Bullets shot into sand don't normally ricochet.
