Trish Van Devere,
Jay Killion (Charles Bronson) had been the presidential bodyguard, but for the inauguration of the recently elected president, he is assigned to the first lady, Lara Royce (Jill Ireland). Lara, a perpetually indignant, arrogantly feministic lady, initially hates the methodical and rules-following Killion, and so she does all she can to avoid him and disregard his safety procedures. The story complicates, however, when repeated attempts are made on Lara's life. Eventually, the shaken Lara decides to trust Killion's instincts and precautionary methods, and the pair embark on a difficult and often perilous cross-country journey, with the assassins close on their heels.

When Ireland and Bronson's characters are being chased by Bracken in the Pickup truck they are shown to be on a two lane highway. In the middle of the chase there is about one second when you see they are being filmed on a one-lane dirt road before they actually turn onto the dirt road. See more »
At first I liked the light tone.But soon it becomes annoying. Especially since there is no compensation for it. There are only a few action scenes and the ones that are there are incredibly dull.The intrigue is laughable. The plot and dialog are beyond comprehension. The way the characters are talking to each other is like they are all in this big farce. Even Bronson doesn't put in the time to make something of it. While the interaction between Charlie and Jill certainly can be seen as a highlight it simply didn't do it for me. Come on I don't want Charles Bronson to deliver comical lines. I want him to shoot up the place and kick some booty.Which he barely did. Probably the worst Bronson movie ever made.
