Decent 80s action
26 January 2000 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sometimes a movie comes along that makes you wonder, "I bet it would be cool if they try something like this," and they go and do it. The scene in this movie where the helicopter flies sideways and Taggar (the protagonist) fires an M-60 at the bad guy on the ground, yelling "Yaaaaaaaaaaargh!!!!" at the top of his lungs as the bullets track along the ground is one of those moments. Well. As above, decent 80s action that zips right along, and some pretty squishy gore effects showing the effects of poison gas that provides the narrative drive. If you see the video box with Edward Albert on the front with a machine gun draped over his shoulder, give it a rent. Metallica pick this time around: "Helpless" or "Fuel," during the final helicopter chase. Crank it up and get ready to have fun!
