The most stupid film ever made

This film is so bad is not even worth reviewing, in fact it shouldn't be even here, it should be in the Internet Trash Data Base. It makes look hispanics, chinese, japanese, and all other races except americans. It's so stupid the terrorists look like the true heroes and the actors that portray them look like models. If the terrorists looked like that why bother being terrorists if they could make a career in modeling. The movie is plain stupid, it has all the cliches of what a latin american should look like. The writers think that all countries look alike, images of the president and flags everywhere, the jails are the worst, the cops are crooks, and the crooks are cops. The president always on fatigues come on this movie is just so idiotic, besides Cristopher Atkins is the star that should be enough to drive you away!!!
