Goofs

The story is supposed to take place in Bern, Switzerland, yet the cars are right hand drive, and all the traffic is driving on the left. This is because the movie was filmed in South Africa where they drive on the left, unlike in Switzerland where they drive on the right side. See more »

User Reviews

Fine low budget action
20 August 1999 | by (Leverkusen, Germany) – See all my reviews

I don't know why, but Warhead is one of my favorite movies.

May be it's the typical Mark Roper-action style in combination with the music during the ( long and violent ) action scenes. The story is about a group of ( fashistic ) terrorists overtaking an american nuclear-silo and a secret Special Force, which takes'em out step by step. Especially the shoot-out in the middle of the movie, where nearly the whole Anti-Terror-Unit is killed by the terrorists impressed me. Mark Roper made a extraordinary well job in this scene. Little note for anyone coming from Germany and planing to rent it. Don't do it ! The video version is heavily cut. Check out the version running in TV ( Pro7 ). It contains more of the violence. If you watch both versions you get in impression of how different these versions are. If you've the right connections, buy the US-release or the ( rare ) UK-print.
