**Fun flick for any Jan Michael Vincent fans!!!, 7 March 2009
Author: robespierre9 from Colorado

This movie ended up being more entertaining than I initially expected it to be! Jan Michael Vincent acts and looks like his younger self in this. He plays Kepler West, who is on the move to cut off some whacked French terrorists out in the middle of the desert. There's some bomb about to go off...and a kidnapping....and a car chase! But JMV is the highlight here, still showing he has some of that unbeatable action-star quality as well as a romantic, seductive side with the female lead, Valentina Vargas. If you love JMV, you'll probably enjoy this flick! It seems to be a bit of a hard movie to find - I don't believe it's out on DVD, but there are video copies available.
