Although billed as action adventure, "On the Line" plays more like an off kilter romance, that happens to revolve around a Mexican whore, Victoria Abril. The conflict between Border Patrol officer, Scott Wilson, and smuggler David Carradine seems almost like an afterthought. Carradine's screen time is minimal, while Wilson more or less carries the film. Mention should be made of Sam Jaffe, who appears in a small role. Totally unacceptable is the amateurish lead performance by Jeff Delger. Indeed I have seen high school actors that delivered their lines far better than this actor wannabe. The choppy editing, and a story that seems stretched to the max almost drags this down to the mat, but not quite. If you admire Scott Wilson or David Carradine, see it, but only if you are prepared for the dreadful acting by Delger. - MERK
