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 »

Well it is a bomb...
24 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Frank Zagarino stars as a marine who must save the world from a terrorist who is looking to use a nuclear weapon on the US and being that Zagarino is the only man who can stop him and...ZZZZZZZ Frank Zagarino and Joe Lara are what happens when a movie wants Dolph Lundgren and Lorenzo Lamas (I must admit Lorenzo Lamas as a white supremacist leader would have been hilarious) but can't afford to do so, they just grab two lookalikes that have less acting ability but the same muscles and voilà you have Warhead. Warhead is a lame movie because it doesn't know how to milk suspense in anything, from it's first shootout until the would be heroic disarming that may or may not save the day, there is no suspense in any of it. Also Warhead for some reason is fairly well budgeted for what it is, so i'm not sure what exactly what they did wrong but all blame falls into the director's hand since he can't competently stage action or suspense. So an action movie without either suspense or excitement, is a movie well worth avoiding.

* out of 4-(Bad)
