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.

Howell is funny as the villian Sanchez Boone.
16 October 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Typical Simauldi's casting a leading actor (Howell) as a villian and unknown canadian actor as a lead. Well, only if he casted a more tougher and macho looking guy as the lead because the actor is kind of bland. But as for Howell, who seems to be doing low-grade film lately, really chews up the role of Sanchez Boone, a eccentric bad guy and really goes over the top on the role. See it if you are a Howell fan, otherwise beware. The same set and Howell was used in DEAD FIRE the same year.
