Another bottom of the line action film
26 December 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Reb Brown plays a military adviser who changes side and helps out the rebel when the rebel leader was killed without trial. Now he is on run with an innocent lady (Shannon Tweed) and teams up with the rebels to fight never ending (boring) battles in this standard action film. Brown has a geeky mustache in this film and Tweed looks bored. Not recommended.
