Don't waste your time.

Video box describes main character as a "one-man fighting machine". Do I really need to get into the plot? By 1989, that was already a laughable cliché.

As far as terrible movies go, this one isn't much fun. (There is one good moment. Someone says, "There are many Russian tanks coming." Cut to a shot of 2 tanks.) The pretentiously lengthy opening credits sequence is a tip-off of what to expect: a long, dull action movie. The low budget leads to glaring continuity mistakes and rampant use of stock footage. Of course, the dialogue and acting suck, the action scenes are ridiculously inept, and the script is riddled with gigantic holes in logic and padded with unnecessary scenes (the main character is given a forced shower for no apparent reason at one point). It veers from confusion to blatant exposition. And Aiello gets the pricelessly anti-climactic line, "If anything leaks from this office, I will personally KICK ASS!" Sven Nuvo gives a performance so bad, you wonder if it's supposed to be a joke.

The ending is laughably limp. Then the hero walks off into the sunset... right down the centre line of a highway.

Movies like this are supposed to barely last 90 minutes, but this one tortures you for two hours!
