Storyline

Rob Greene has information about an undercover terror team inside the CIA led by Joe Connelly. To stay alive with the knowledge, he is advised to stay undercover by his supervisor Andrews. Connelly's men try to kill Greene, but he can escape and warns his son Danny that he also may be in danger and that he should look for Dog Thompson, an old military friend of Greene's. Together with Thompson and Bone Conn, another ex-soldier, Danny tries to escape Connelly's henchmen. Meanwhile, Connelly figures that Danny's friend Lisa would make a good target in order to get Danny and also his father. Written by Thomas Meyer <i03a@zfn.uni-bremen.de>

Goofs

A member of an assassination team is being pursued down a hall by one of the senator's security detail. Between them, five people step out of an elevator into the hallway. The bad guy turns and fires his gun in their direction - only two shots - as they all dive or fall to the floor, before the security man guns him down. In the next shot, all 5 bystanders are on the floor, either dead or dying, with pools of blood visible below three of them. See more »

Humorously bad
26 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had a bad feeling when I saw the cheap title work. It only took a couple of scenes to confirm that this movie is a real stinker! The only enjoyment I got out of this was to laugh at the technical flaws (example - the background "car sounds" audio just disappears during the scene with Danny and Dog in Dog's car). Production shows a total lack of imagination (example - slow motion machine gun fire repeats many times). Sandra Bullock plays essentially a bit part, completely unnecessary to the plot. To say that this movie actually HAS a plot is doing more justice to the writing than it deserves. The antique computer hardware is kind of interesting. This film was released in 1982 (not 1987 as the IMDb database indicates) and then current "high tech" was an amber screen on a 4.8 MHz IBM PC with floppy drives. Maybe the PC was the real star of the movie... at least it was interesting.

We got this on DVD for a couple of bucks in the bargain bin at WalMart. As the other reviewer notes, we paid too much!
