Storyline

Scuba-diver turned beach-bum Jonathan Slade is forced back into his previous milieu - the world of international espionage - in order to retrieve Black Boxes from an American jetliner that crashed under mysterious circumstances into the Black Sea. With his computer-hacker younger brother, Slade travels to a resort on the Russian-Turkish border to begin his quest. To his surprise and dismay, he's now joined by another secret agent, a beautiful but highly-skilled woman named Alex. As they begin diving in search of the downed jetliner, Slade and Alex begin to suspect they're being manipulated by higher-ups who may not be committed to American interests.

Matt McColm is GREAT Eye Candy!!
12 August 1998 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This neat little spoof on action genre films has Matt McColm showing off his great bod to full effect. He is definitely some of the best eye candy to hit the screens in a long time. The plot, as usual in this type of B film, is a bit thin!! but it is only a conveyance for the star. Hope we see more of him - very soon!!!
