Great explosion sequence, lots of action
10 August 1999 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

It is set in some fictious Soviet country, terrorists take over a palace and the Scalia character has to come in to save the day. I liked the effect sequences of the Palace in the final scene. If you like typical action, you'll like this film.
