Storyline

Jesse Palmer, is a Vietnam Veteran who must discomfit his ex-commanding officer turned crooked senate candidate named Whalen from conspiring to turn over part of the U.S. Government to terrorists.

This one innocent man must expose this corrupt senator before he wins the election... Written by David Choi <KDaDDyChOi@aol.com>

A bad, bad film
22 September 2000 | by (San Francisco, California, USA) – See all my reviews

"Quiet Fire" has very little going for it except unintended laughs. And there are quiet a few of them. Bad, bad acting, terrible writing and direction. This film has the look of a cheap TV movie. Karen Black (as usual) rises above the rest and actually gives a performance with at least some sort of characterization. It was actually kind of startling when she first appeared on screen because I had been sort of dulled into this state of catatonia by the amateurish acting of the rest of the cast...

The evil, crooked Senate hopeful referred to in the previous comment as a "Ted Turner look-a-like" use the term "kapeesh" a lot - and is referred to as sexy, with "great hair". Judge for yourself. Hmmm....
