Made for TV strikes again
4 March 1999 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

Oliver North is a criminal. That said, this is a bad, bad movie. I don't know the particulars of Oliver North's personal life, but David Keith comes off as a caricature.

With lines like "buenas dias, commies" and endlessly overplayed patriotic zealotry, this movie is boring at worst and mildly entertaining at best.

Plus, it has what every made for TV movie needs, a hilarious Ronald Reagan portrayal.
