It happened in Barcelona
8 March 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This film, which according to IMDb appears to have been made for television, was shown in a cable network not long ago. This 1992 movie was directed by Gary Nelson, and while not a masterpiece of the thriller genre, it is not without its own merits.

If you haven't seen the film, perhaps you should stop reading.

The main attraction for watching this movie was the late Robert Urich. Mr. Urich was a personable performer, who was always good to watch. In the film he plays and FBI agent that suffers a tragic experience in his life with a sting gone wrong, where a young child is killed by accident.

Mr. Urich played Nick Sastre, a man of Catalonian parents, that is called back by his old handler at the FBI, to help with the investigation of a branch of the Spanish mafia that is trying to operate in the Los Angeles area. During a night on the town with Aldo Testi, he is shot and becomes paraplegic. In his strong will to survive, he undergoes physical therapy that shows him how to use to the best advantage the wheel chair he must use for life.

The action then switches to Barcelona, the beautiful city by the Mediterranean where Nick reacquaints himself with Aldo Testi, the bad guy he is trying to expose. We meet an amazing array of characters that are part of a new world for Nick. In a way, it's a big stretch of the imagination that Nick will survive the adventure because of his condition, but we go along for the ride, making excuses for what we know it's almost impossible.

Aside from Mr. Urich, Dakin Matthews plays the FBI agent in charge of the operation. David Ryall makes a mean Aldo Testi. There are good appearances by some notable Spanish cinema stars. Assumpta Serna plays the mysterious countess in Aldo Testi's employment. Ariadna Gil is seen as the woman who makes a notable change in Nick's life.
