Did you see the same movie I did?
24 December 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The previous user comment about this being an OK movie is quite bizarre... it's quite clearly a low budget, c-grade, made-for-TV quality movie -- if it was made for TV in the early 80's. The fight scenes are awful, and I can't imagine anyone, not even someone who knows Speakman's martial art of choice would really care about what kind of punch he is throwing at any stage.

Maybe his comments were actually about a different movie... the back cover of the DVD that I picked up for $3 reads:

"Chicago SWAT TEAM leader Jimmy Fain (Jeff Speakman) is committed to a mental facility, blaming himself after he fails to diffuse a terrorist bombing threat. There he meets a mysterious inmate who insists that Fain is the man destined to save the world from nuclear disaster. Going against all sane logic, Fain breaks out of the asylum, racing against time to save the human race from self-destruction.

In desolate Siberia, mercenary saboteurs armed with a HI-TECH STEALTH HELICOPTER steal the control codes for Russia's orbiting LASER SATELLITE called TALON. Within hours, ruthless industrialist Gerald Lancaster launches a series of space-based laser attacks on American NUCLEAR SUBMARINE and a Russian ORBITING SPACE STATION. Soon, Russia's capitalist government falls victim to a hard line communist coup and the West prepares for the return of the cold war.

Crossing the Canadian border, Jimmy Fain rescues a defecting Russian scientist who holds the key to destroying the TALON satellite. Pursued by Lancaster's hit squads, Fain battles to destroy the TALON satellite, before Lancaster plunges the world into NUCLEAR Armageddon."

Now THAT's a movie worth $3! However, in the movie I actually saw:

1) There is no character called Jimmy Fain. 2) The character Speakman plays is not a SWAT TEAM leader. 3) His character doesn't have a breakdown, he is forced into an insane asylum, but doesn't meet anyone there. 4) Siberia is never mentioned or seen. 5) There are no HI-TECH STEALTH HELICOPTERS. 6) Russia is never mentioned or seen. 7) Canada is never mentioned or seen. 8) There are no defecting or any other kind of scientists (technicians, maybe). 9) There is no-one called Lancaster. 10) There is no nuclear threat at any stage. 11) There is a LASER SATELLITE, but it's called EAGLE, not TALON.

Apart from that, it's a perfectly accurate description of the movie.

What's odd is the IMDb Plot Outline for this movie reads:

"An embittered satellite expert gets the opportunity for revenge against the USA by aiding terrorists in a plan to destroy the country's military base."

This is also completely inaccurate. There is no embittered satellite expert, there are no terrorists, and there is no plan to destroy any military base. The movie DOES have a satellite in it though, I'll give it that. And 2 out of 10.
