FBI agents attempt to protect a woman who is testifying against her gangster boy friend. However, an army of assassins are after her in an endless series of shootouts. Written by

The bad guys are all out to kill the government's star witness -- the defendant's wife -- before she can testify. Her protection? The usual (in these kinds of films) FBI agent pretending to be the dutiful automaton but not quite able to pull it off because he's human underneath it all. What sets this film apart is the sharp tongue-in-cheek writing (FBI agents are referred to as "Zimbalists", for instance) and above all, Maria Conchita Alonso's show stealing performance as the wisecracking, emotional lead. Yeah, she's lovely and sexy, but mostly she's a fine and underrated actress (check her out in the drama "Caught"). A highly entertaining film.
