Storyline

Terrorists attempt to disrupt the Atlanta Olympics by kidnapping the U.S. women's swim team. If their demands are not met, the team will be executed. Only janitor Jack Bryant, a former Olympic gymnast champion of Tae Kwon Do felled by injuries and alcoholism knows of their real plans. And only he, with the guidance of former terrorist-fighter Leo, can stop them. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@tss.th.nec.co.jp>

I think, that my comments would be good (for russian :) )
14 November 2000 | by (Moscow, Russia) – See all my reviews

This movie is similar on movie "Mean guns". Two main colors: orange-outside and blue-inside, one director and common actors (Kimberly Warren, Yuji Okumoto and others)! I like Linden Ashby, because he had strong nature and with broken leg, he was fighting with terrorists. Movie was not very strained and very expensive, but i don't watched on price, i had receive pleasure because of tempers of heroes: Jack, Omodo, Leo. I like it for invisible pleasant sense after seeing of movie.
