Rick Morgan: Well, um, that won't be necessary.
Maurice Dupont: I do not think you realize how dangerous this country has become.
Rick Morgan: [as he heads to the bar behind him to pour himself a large mug of bourbon] It won't be necessary for our contaminations expert here to accompany me, 'cause, uh, I don't need an assistant to find the drums.

Billy Zane = Action Hero
21 July 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Billy Zane delivers a thrilling, entertaining and well watchable action movie. If this film had a bigger budget and wasn't a TV movie it would be up in the biggest earners of all time. Even though it is a TV movie it is quality to the last frame. It has a believable plot, lead actor (Zane) and supporting actors especially Robert Downey Jr. Without giving too much away, during the film there are some killer punch-ups. The best grapple is on top of a train going along a mountain with there being no doubt that Billy Zane isn't involved - Vic Armstrong eat your heart out! Watch this if you want to see some well choreographed fight scenes and realistic shoot outs. Billy Zane needs to do more action films with all of the aforementioned selling points to keep his Action Hero title
