For Michael Pare/Jan Michael Vincent fans only!!!
29 November 2008 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

This will be enjoyable only for fans of these 2 actors. I like Michael Pare from Greatest American Hero, Eddie and the Cruisers, Streets of Fire, World Gone Wild, etc. And I'm also a huge Jan Michael Vincent fan too (See Buster and Billie, Tribes, Winds of War, Airwolf, etc). So having these 2 in a movie together was very cool! Granted this came out in 1993, past the hey-day of either of them, but both do themselves justice in this flick. Pare looks to be in great physical shape still, as does Vincent. This is one of the last flicks Vincent did before he deteriorated more with alcohol problems. He puts in a very decent performance here is a former CIA toughie. It's great to see a final display of his action-star charisma before he vanished from the screen. By the end of the movie, Vincent really seems to be enjoying himself, flashing a boyish smile which makes you remember his charming quality in so many great 70's/80's movies. It's also fun to laugh at the plastic-weapon-wielding terrorists who are waaaaaaaay over the top!
