A "Bond"-ish Adventure
30 March 2001 | by (Schenectady, NY USA) – See all my reviews

Dale Robinette plays a James Bond type character out to foil a mastermind who plans to extort a billion dollars from the government by threatening to destroy the ozone layer. There are the usual "Q" type gadgets here, from the burning dental floss to the shotgun that shoots missiles. While not Academy Award material, this film has plenty of thrills worthy of a good TV movie, sport.
