But Jake Gorki, a policeman of the New York Police Department, flying over the Federal Reserve Bank with his helicopter, suspects something else: a robbery. Written by

After the success of T.V. shows "Knight Rider and "Baywatch", it was pretty likely and pretty unfortunate that David Hasselhoff would attempt to make a mark in the movies. In this pathetic and powerless attempt to give Hasselhoff the part of an action hero, this picture tries to replicate action classic "Die Hard" (1988), and doesn't just trip up, but gets its head stuck in the railings at the same time. The only entertaining aspect to this film is the villain, who intends to ransack a big bag of dosh, and even has the standard goatee beard and evil smile. Of course there's the beautiful woman for Hasselhoff to schmaltz with, though she was probably only in it for the cash. She must have been desperate. You'll find more character in an empty fish tank, and Hasselhoff may as well head back to the beach, or even better, go get Kit back from servicing. There's even a part when Hasselhoff tries to do the hanging from a Fireman's hose scene, but he shimmies down the side!
If you're looking for the kind of film that would make Channel 5 question its taste, or make the bargain bin snigger, this is wonderful. Lets all pray David Hasselhoff doesn't get beyond T.V. movies.
