Storyline

When Steve Mitchell is clandestinely sent to the US embassy in Bucharest, Romania to disarm a nuclear bomb that has secretly remained in the building since the end of the Cold War, little does he know that other problems will soon erupt. He must join Erica Long, a diplomatic attaché who is not all that she appears, to work together on setting the correct computer code that will disable the weapon and accomplish the mission. But while watching video monitors from inside a long-forgotten surveillance room, Steve witnesses a surprising deadly takeover of the building by the Serbian Liberation Front. With thirty-seven people taken hostage, including Steve's stepson, they demand the immediate release of their imprisoned leader who is being held for war crimes against humanity. If not, they will kill one hostage every hour. With time of the essence, the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon in Washington, DC send General Swain to try to end the lethal assault and the possibility of a ... Written by Anonymous

Suprisingly good B-Movie actioner!
8 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Before I saw this movie last night I have to admit I had never heard of it before, so I thought it would be like one of those awful Nu Image action productions. I was pleasently suprised at how good it acually is - Yes I know it streches credibility at times as do most films of this type and the story is really padded out to make it's 90 minutes, but even so it's not that BAD. The movie has 'Stars' Such as Peter Weller who has made a living out of B-Movies after Robocop 1 & 2. Daryl Hannah (Splash) who never became the star she should have been also stars, and Tom Berenger who's always in these kind of movies also appears.

The acting is much better than the movie probably deserves

It's not the best movie ever made neither is it the worst just sit back leave your brain at the door and enjoy

My Vote 7/10
