Storyline

An oil tanker is commandeered by a group of third world terrorists who manoeuvre the ship into Tokyo harbour and pledge to detonate the ship and its explosive cargo unless their conditions are met. The extremists want the government of Japan to capitulate to their demand for a fairer distribution of wealth between countries. They make some outrageous demands, but the government has no intention of playing along. Will the situation, quite literally, blow-up? Written by Alfred Jingle

American Movie Classic?
23 January 2000 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this on AMC of all places. It qualifies as a Movie, but is neither American nor a Classic. Pretty inept action story with inserted footage of Peter Graves (ala Raymond Burr in Godzilla). If you want to waste 90 minutes of your life go ahead but otherwise beware.
