Storyline

Alex L'Hiboux, a ruthless mercenary-cum-vigilante, is known as 'the Owl' because he never sleeps. His insomnia comes from a combination of a medical disorder and recurring nightmares of the murder of his wife and daughter. Alex is approached by Lisa, a young girl whose father is missing. She awakens painful memories of his own child, but after some persuasion from a policewoman friend, he agrees to help her. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

Trivia

The original 48 minute version which aired on CBS in 1991 is credited to director Tom Holland. A longer edit which includes deleted scenes (opening with Holland himself as a mugger/rapist who is foiled by The Owl) and lengthy montage sequences was created for the international market and is credited to director Alan Smithee, a pseudonym frequently used when directors are unhappy with a finished film.

Wow
21 March 2002 | by (brum) – See all my reviews

This film is real bad, its a real bad film i tells ya. It even stoops to the rapping bad guy level, in fact barring sesame street i cant remember rap being used so effectively. Anyway, Bill Cosby is the rapping bad guy who is trying to kill the owl, other wise known as Alex L'Hiboux. The French name doesnt really explain why the actor playing the role keeps slipping into an English accent. Their are very few things to recommend this film. One of them is Uscar nominated Branscombe Richmond who is at his impeccable best as chief Walks with a Limp, the guy who taught the owl everything he knows. A star turn by Billy "Sly" Williams as gullett also stand's out.
