When gun-wielding guerillas skyjack a Los Angeles airliner, the government calls in the one man who can get the job done. He's the Scorpion - a hardcore intelligence agent and the prime target of every country's hit list. The Scorpion defuses the skyjacking, but steps into an international scheme involving the assassination of a Faued, an imprisoned kingpin turned informant. When the Scorpion's lifelong friend and partner is killed, he unleashes his ultimate sting - avenging his buddy's death and finding Faued's killers before they find him. Written by Dario Smagata

Not bad action film with good script.
10 October 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

The film features a Martial Artist who beat Chuck Norris in a match in real life. He isn't too much of a actor, but he could've been perfect direct-to-video star if he started in the 90's. The film has bad lighting and low production value, but I guess all the money went to the supporting actors (Don Murray, who doesn't do "B" movies and Robert Logan who just did the 20th century Fox film A NIGHT IN HEAVEN the same year) and several locations isn't cheap either(Spain/Hawaii/California). Original plot centers Tony as a agent protecting a terrorist, and his childhood friends gets killed, so now it's personal! Music seems to feel as if it was put in later by Crown International. This film opened in Seattle with no ads as a second feature in several drive-in, but it opened wide in Los Angeles. Recommended to action fans.
