Standard actioner with usual plot
17 September 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

A ex-Merc turned computer game programmer John Templeton (Ed Marinaro) is on a mission to help any woman who need help from psycho boyfriend to stalkers. Templeton's wife was murder by a stalker, so he became a one man crusade to stop all bad guys. When a lady (Kate Rodgers) is getting harrashed by a mobester boyfriend (cyril O'Reily), it's templeton to the rescue. Lee Majors has a 5 minutes part as a Templeton's ex-commander, who now is a hired killer, who goes after Templeton. Major's play a character name Austin (I wonder if his first name is Steve?) It's good to see Majors and even Marinaro in a film for they have been kind of missing, but this Corman/Saban co-production is cheezy and cheap looking. Very little location and the lighting is terrible. Recommended to for someone looking for a quick video rental for a "B" action film.
