Another waste of time
21 June 2001 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

At first glance, this is one of the better looking Jack Scalia outings I've seen. Of course, that doesn't say a whole lot ... much like the story. It isn't worth talking about at length and neither is any mention of the cast. There's some real cheese grade acting to be seen here. The F/X are passable for a low density low budget movie of this order, but the entire contraption is void of anything mildly redeeming. The whole secret agent scenario is cliché and the characters might as well be talking color bars. It wouldn't have made a difference.

My one wish is that I had a briefcase like Jack Gracy (Scalia's character). In the movie his has a red light that when it goes off he know an unauthorized entry at a Russian Nuclear missile silo has occurred. Mine would be slightly different. It would still have a red light, but it would only go off when someone made a really memorable action movie. Needless to say, this is not one of them.
