One of three 1990 cinema movies starring actor Michael Caine which were all first released in that year. The other films were Bullseye (1987) and Mr. Destiny (1990). All three pictures were failures at the box-office. In 1990, Caine also headlined the tele-movie Jekyll & Hyde (1990). Of these four productions, A Shock to the System (1990) was the only one in which Caine did not play dual roles or multiple characters. See more »

Never has such a Machiavellian killer seemed so appealing.
Michael Caine keeps piling up the bodies, but you always seem to be on his side. There's no heart-pounding action, just an intense game of criminal chess where Caine stays one step ahead of the competition.
This is a seriously satisfying flick for anyone who's ever wanted to take out some of your co-workers.
