Storyline

David Miller is a Vietnam vet who renounced violence and became a minister after he was forced to blow up a Viet Cong kid in self defense, but years later, when David's wife Gail and daughter Kim are killed by a group of terrorists led by Ali Aboud, in a massacre at an airport in Rome, Italy, David is devastated. The State Department, led by Mr. Whiteside, pretty much ignores David's pleas for justice, even refusing to tell David where Aboud is. David investigates, and discovers that Aboud is now in Lebanon. David spends some time training under his old friend, Colonel Freeman, then David arms himself to go to Lebanon and get revenge on Aboud, and in Lebanon, David meets Reverend Bloor, who is part of a mission in Lebanon. Whiteside wants Aboud to be protected because Aboud is an operative working for the United States government, so Whiteside sends Freeman to Lebanon to keep an eye on David, and Whiteside has also ordered Freeman to kill David if David tries to kill Aboud.

They ought to rate this movie P.U.
8 September 2002 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

As is common in so many straight-to-video efforts, this offers a tired, formulaic script featuring some minor, washed-up actors in a project that's obviously hampered by a low budget. Even if you're simply looking for a 90-minute "time-killer," this will not suffice.

Particularly bad is the big torture scene in which John Schneider, who's fallen into the hands of the ruthless, sadistic bad guys, is tied to a chair so he can be subjected to electroshocks. The bad guys pull open his shirt, but since he's wearing an undershirt, this has little effect. Then they poke him a couple of times in the neck with the electrical wires. Then they give up, figuring that Schneider can't be forced to talk! What torture school did these guys go to? The Jack and Jill Academy of the Big Ouch?

For a much better scene of John Schneider being tortured with electricity, check out "Cocaine Wars." At least the bad guys in that movie have enough sense to strip him to the waist.
