Storyline

The Russians steal a nuclear device and are stating that unless the Israelis pull out from the West bank, they will detonate it, which they have planted in an oil field and if it should go off; 50% of the World's oil will be contaminated. And the Israelis are unwilling to cooperate and the Americans knowing that they can't allow this are making preparations to force the Israelis off the West bank. The President then calls the Director of the CIA to do something about this. The Director assigns the agent who works outside the official channels codenamed the Soldier. He starts by trying to see if the Russians are indeed behind it but the Russians have him marked for termination. When he tries to contact the Director, the Russians placed a bomb in his office that leaves the soldier with no one but his team and the Israelis to help him. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Not Oscar material, but...
16 May 2002 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

When I first saw the film, I enjoyed it thoroughly. The acting, far from being bad, seemed more a realistic portrayal of how people might speak and act in the given situations. And, those who speak of it today as a 'relic' of Cold War times should take a good look at Russia today. There are those who don't particularly care for Vladamir Putin and the current status quo in government. And, the K.G.B. didn't go away, it just changed its name to the F.S.B. -- still very active in Russia and, perhaps, with elements unfriendly to the Russian status quo among their numbers. Nationalist candidates still only capture minority interest but this can change ... as can the F.S.B. The film portrayed fictional incidents in 1982. And, while those incidents might seem Cold Warrish in 2002, future events could alter that perception. I saw the film recently and like it better than when I first saw it.
