Storyline

Christopher Connelly stars as Stuntman Hill Singleton in this daring, high seas, rescue adventure. When film star Rebecca Way is kidnapped from her own set, Hill must come up with a plan. Because she is stashed away in international waters, the F.B.I.'s hands are tied, so Hill must take matters into his own hands. He has just seventy-two hours to round up an all star rescue team, including Morgan Brittany and Christopher Lloyd, and pull off this daring rescue.

Stuntmen to the rescue!
23 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

An entertaining rescue mission TV- movie.

Big name actress (Elke Sommer) is kidnapped from the set during filming. She's being held by ex- pirate Bourdieu (Patrick Macnee)on an off shore shack off the coast of Cuba for ransom. As the FBI declines to act, stuntman Hill Singleton decides to put together a rescue team made of stuntmen and women.

What's so enjoyable in this one is the fact that everyone seems to be aware of the ludicrosity of the script. No one's acting at all seriously and it almost seems that many times we get a glimpse of the real people behind the roles.

Another notable thing about The Fantastic Seven is the warmth and respect shown towards the profession of stuntman. After seeing this one I wanted to become one immediately just because of the great team spirit they have!

Finally, as it is a product of the seventies, enjoyability is heightened by the "Charlie's Angels"- factor. In other words: if you're a fan of the groovy feeling of the Spelling- created series, I'm sure you'll enjoy this one, too. (Although Spelling is in no way connected with the Fantastic Seven.)

Released on video in Finland in the early eighties.
