It could have been worse,but it could have been better.
3 February 2001 | by (Downers Grove,Il) – See all my reviews

Set in Iran just before the revolution,this film is a low budget spy adventure,which I saw as Cruise Missile, that wastes a good cast in a cliched movie.Peter Graves plays an American agent sent to investigate the murder of a fellow agent who was investigating an international businessman known as The Baron,played by Curt Jurgens. The Baron has obtained a Soviet nuclear missile with which he intends to attack an international conference being held in the Persian Gulf.John Carradine had a pointless role as a Russian scientist who was aiding the Baron.It was not his finest hour. The most curious thing though, were all the references through background news broadcasts to the Ayatollah Khomeni causing trouble in Paris. I gave this movie a 4.If you're looking for James Bond or Mission:Impossible(TV) don't see this film.If you want to count cliches you might find this funny.
