Storyline

During Gorbatchov's perestroika, Archer Sloan, a Chicago student, visits Moscow while the Soviet Union is changing from Communist to Wild West capitalist society. Purely by bad luck, he becomes a pawn in a dangerous cat and mouse game for a black Madonna, a precious icon, which was stolen from Russian Orthodox clergy by the quickly rising, rich and corrupt Russian mafia, and then by a black market-girl he followed just as a flirt who didn't know herself what she nicked. The well-connected mobsters find him and threaten his life in no time, and the US embassy isn't very helpful, worse, it's also infiltrated... Written by KGF Vissers

Never visit a communist country
29 January 2004 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Nothing special but a fairly entertaining movie. Several Ruskie groups want a valuable artifact they believe a innocent tourist has, and will stop at nothing to get it, thus making life miserable for the flabbergasted visitor. Whaley was good as the continually upset tourist; seems like he is always playing the sniveling wimp who blows his top only to immediately begin apologizing.
