Storyline

When terrorists start killing scientists who are working on NATO's laser defense , an elite team, the Counter Assault Tactical (C.A.T.) Squad, are brought in to to stop the killers. The squad consists of five members. The leader is totally ruthless as a military type, but is a pussycat with his dancer lover. His second-in-command also has his compassionate side as he deals with his hearing-impaired son. The third member is the expected explosives expert, whose twist here is that he is a total outdoors-man and absolutely hates cities. the fourth member is a forensics expert who loves to play poker. The remaining member is a young language expert. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Not the best from Bill Friedkin, for sure...

Of course I expected far better from another collaboration between Gerald Petievitch and Friedkin, after LIVE AND DIE IN L.A. This TV feature is not a crap although, but from such a great director, anyone can be disappointed. And this Ennio Morricone score which has nothing to do here. Why not classical music? And those Morricone music are oldies, for instance if you are careful, it is the music from Philippe Labro's SANS MOBILE APPARENT that we hear the most; but not only. Many other tracks are here. But if you consider it as a common TV film, it is OK. You can live without it. I repeat, the mix up of all those Morricone musics are very strange, weird and sometimes not voluntary funny.
