"Let me show you how to REALLY bend somebody over!"
11 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

TERMINAL RUSH here has the spark of potential, as it was one of the few films of Don Wilson's that I didn't buy on a whim and was actually excited about beforehand. Disappointingly, it's humorless DIE HARD knockoff that makes the works of Jean-Claude Van Damme seem stellar by comparison.

The story: When the Hoover Dam is overtaken by hostage-holding terrorists (led by Michael Anderson Jr. and Roddy Piper), it's up to troubled Native American policeman Jacob Harper (Wilson) to infiltrate the monument and disarm the criminals.

Considering that Wilson's own ethnicity is a complete non-factor in most of his movies, it's kind of cool to see him branch out and play a character of a different race...even though said character is as bland as sofkee. The real attractions here are Michael Anderson and Roddy Piper, though their appeal is likewise limited: at the best, they echo Gary Busey and Tommy Lee Jones in UNDER SIEGE, but particularly Piper isn't given much room to play with his character, and neither of their deeds are quite nefarious enough to make them stand out. The entire film's like that: the premise is interesting enough to warrant a look, but in the end, the movie is played and directed so lifelessly (and yet so seriously) that it's going to take a very specific fan to really get interested in it.

The same goes for the action, but with ol' Don, I've come to expect that. TERMINAL RUSH actually has fewer fight scenes and generally less action than the average Wilson flick: there's a bit of kicking and punching and at least one shootout throughout, but only three outright hand-to-hand fights. The movie presents Don with two ready opponents - henchman/karateka Michael Bernardo (who attained slightly better results as a villain in Wilson's VIRTUAL COMBAT) and pro wrestler/judoka Roddy Piper - but though one showdown is marginally better than the other, they're both basically crud, proving that Don doesn't need Art Camacho working on his movies to deliver substandard fight choreography.

Of the cumulative fifteen Don Wilson films I've watched, this one ranks low, because it's just no fun to watch. Even the other movies had a greater appeal based on silly scripts, but TERMINAL RUSH just acts as a sleeping pill for me. At the 12-minute mark, I was already bored with the movie, and if I had known that it wasn't going to get any better, I would've stopped watching then.
