AGING BUT GOOD COLD WAR NAZI STORY
2 October 2000 | by (Midwest U.S.) – See all my reviews

Probably pro-Kojak sentiments coupled with the courageous story line led to my exaggerating a "fair" rating for this movie. Probably a fair rating of this movie should be 8. But the inexplicable weighted average by others of 5.3 is neither fair nor understandable.

The action and style is classic Kojak; even "Styros" (Terry Salvalas' real life brother) acts in this movie. I think Salvalas and Susan Pleshet did a good job of carrying the story of a Nazi concentration camp survivor tracking down aging Nazis to execute them by taking justice into his own hands. The one glaring flaw is that Pleshet's character (an ambitious State Department attorney on her way up ... who is supposed to derail Kojak's murder investigation) is not likely to have faced a lifetime prison term by handing over to Kojak "Top Secret" files ... just to prove to Kojak that she can be trusted. But otherwise, I think the movie made its point that mass murderous Nazis were (and continue to be) protected by various branches of the United States government. So making an action-adventure "crimmie" about it takes some guts and deserves some glory.

This movie is worth seeing for entertainment and for educational values.
