Goofs

In the second scene of the film when Kristy Swanson is about to assassinate David Dukes on the beach, the left handed Swanson holds the Steyr AUG rifle left handed. However the AUG is shown set for a right handed shooter. Odd since the AUG is world famous for its ability to be set for a right or left handed shooter. See more »

Not the worst B-movie I've ever seen, but still bad.
27 December 2004 | by (Tessenderlo, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Supreme Sanction is a movie about a female assassin who works for the U.S. government. She has to kill a known TV reporter, but spares his life when she sees that he has a little daughter. Because she hasn't killed him, she becomes the next target of her employers.

The script isn't good although I've seen worse B-movies. A hit-man with remorse, the government killing innocent people in the name of fighting terror,... What's next? Aliens rescuing the victim??? No, Supreme Sanction will never win any award because of the script. And the acting isn't any better I'm afraid. A few better known actors (Michael Madsen and Kristy Swanson), who clearly had a lot of bills to pay and therefor accepted to play in this movie, together with some other actors who probably don't even know what a camera really looks like don't do any good to the movie either.

So why should you watch this movie? Well, if you haven't got anything better to do but to watch some action flick and you are tired of the 10,531st rerun of Mc Gyver or the A-team, than this might be the movie you want to see. Otherwise you better leave it alone. I give it a 3/10.
