Storyline

Marine officer Rob Cutter and his wife Barbara have a son named Johnny. Rob discovers that two newly delivered helicopters in his squadron have crashed because a defective part, a C-ring, has been made of a weaker, less expensive alloy. Before Rob can go public with this, Rob is killed on the orders of corrupt General Howard, who did not want Rob to go public with the defective part. Howard believes that Barbara, who is also a marine, now has the part, so Howard and his henchmen set out to kill Barbara and Johnny and get the part, but Howard is underestimating what Barbara is willing to do to protect Johnny.

Gutsy Amy Madigan on the run from conspiracy thugs
25 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is listed as a noir by John Grant. The story is indeed noir in that it involves a defense business making defective helicopters that has corrupted a general (John Colicos). When Amy Madigan's husband (Daniel Hugh Kelly), a Marine and an engineer, discovers the defective part, the conspiracy swings into action killing him and sending Madigan fleeing with her son, Robin MacEachern. As intelligent and capable as she is, responding to those after her by using her wits and skills, they keep coming.

Although the story slows down periodically to bring out the human side, the tension remains in every such sequence. This film is strongly oriented toward action. The stunts, pacing, camera work and staging of the action scenes are top-tier. They kept me glued to the set. When Madigan teams up with recluse Michael Ironside, a former pal of her husband, a new dimension to her battle begins. His scene with the near shell-shocked boy (MacEachern) is a real human touch.

There are two widely differing opinions expressed in the IMDb reviews so far. I'm way on the plus side of the ledger. The stunt work alone is riveting, and there are no computer-generated effects.

This isn't "Rambo: First Blood" (1982) which I regard very highly, but it can be kept beside it on the shelf and enjoyed more frequently than one might think.
