Ten years after a covert military experiment on a remote Pacific island went wrong and killed eighteen servicemen and his assistant, Dr. Richard Long is still trying to forget the havoc that the experiment caused. Living in the small town of Jerome, Montana, Long still does scientific experiments at the local base, and he enjoys his time fly-fishing with Tim Mason, who works at a local diner. Long is visited by Colonel Andrew Brynner, a former military officer who took the blame and served ten years in Leavenworth Federal Prison for Long's experiment. Now a free man with a score to settle, Brynner has assembled a team of terrorists, including an icy blond named Vaughn. Brynner plans to steal and then sell "Elvis" -- Long's highly volatile, blue crystal substance -- to the highest international bidder.

A Movie a Little Bit Above the Average of Other Action Movies
A scientist (David Paymer) develops a biological lethal weapon and accidentally kills eighteen persons involved in the project. Col. Andrew Brynner (Peter Firth) is blamed and goes to prison for ten years. Along this period, he gets crazy and decides to get and sell the weapon. A convenience store clerk (Skeet Ulrich) and an ice-cream trucker driver (Cuba Gooding Jr.) receives this weapon from the injured Dr. Richard Long, with an advice to keep it below 50 F, and try to escape from the colonel's team. This movie is not bad. Indeed it is a little bit above the average of this type of action movie. There are some terrible cuts of the scenes. Although being forgettable, it is not a bad entertainment. My vote is six.
