Storyline

A master jewel thief in 21st century Los Angeles targets the illegal emerald smuggling operations of a highly-connected crime syndicate. During what he believes to be a routine heist, cat burglar Harry Maxwell discovers that his target, notorious criminal Sanchez Boon is also the target of a police raid. In attempting to evade both the law and Boon's well-armed men, Harry meets Pandora Grimes, one of dozens of young women Boon kidnapped to work in his factory. When Boon sets a group of social deviants free and hijacks a space transport ship and its crew, only Harry and Pandora's cunning can save the hundreds of innocent people aboard.

Typical but Thoroughly Enjoyable B-Movie Ham
19 February 2000 | by (Liverppol, England) – See all my reviews

I agree, C Thomas Howell is brilliant as Sanchez. I could have done without the excessive bad language but screen writers nowadays seem to have those F-words built into their scripts and then fit any other words around them. I seem to remember seeing Matt Frewer as a henchman but he doesn't seem to appear in the above cast list.
