Brian Genesse stars as a former baseball player turned custodian who protects a boy and his mother from an android terrorist in this admittedly well made but moronic and utterly dull venture in Die Hard with a science fiction angle. One of the problems with this terrible movie is that are just too many unanswered questions. Mainly why does an android need to ransom the government? Why does Frank Zagarino (Who actually isn't too bad) act inexpressive at one moment and then spout out one-liners at one point. Also for some reason the producers have seen fit to rip off the mediocre Michael Dudikoff actioner Virtual Assassin right down to the letter. However Brian Genesse is no Michael Dudikoff (How unlikely do you see such a sentence?) and basically the movie has no interest in it's characters or indeed any plot angle. The action sequences are indifferently staged and my general observation was that they spent all their money on the look of the film but were completely baffled in making the movie itself interesting. The film's low budget special effects are good but with nothing else to hold your attention this becomes a tiresome effort.
