The director, Ben Adams, is having problems with the budget dragging out and the hot-tempered producer threatening to shut down the project if the filming is not speed ed up. The lead actress, Jodi Marshall, also deals with her horny co-star and her growing feelings for Ben, both of whom had a romantic fling in the past. But one night, a company of heavily armed soldiers parachute into the area, whom are led by a disgruntled former U.S. Special Forces officer, named Michael Cooper whose mission is to take the city and hold it, and the populace, for ransom.

A movie that will make you wish you'd never watched it
27 January 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that when the closing scene rolls around, you will say "What?! You've got to be kidding!!" It is that lame. The acting is pretty bad across the board, except for Richard Lynch, who always does a good job and was the main reason I decided to watch this movie.

A film crew is on location shooting a movie when a military group parachutes into the area. In order to convince us that they have actually parachuted, we see some men fall onto the ground from a standing position, then get up and start gathering their parachutes - hooooboy.

The lead actress is in the woods at night with her boyfriend when he is killed by the invading force of soldiers. She manages to escape from the soldiers, and even to knock one of them out and steal his gun. The soldiers are wearing what appears to be world war I helmets, which makes it odd that hitting them on the head with a stick could render them unconscious. However, once she knocks out the soldier, she climbs a tree and roosts there until the next day.

There are huge jumps in logic, and ridiculous plot holes. None of the characters are particularly likeable, and the actor playing the director has a Bronson "Cousin Balki" Pinchot haircut, which makes it hard to take him seriously, besides the fact that he's not much of an actor.

Fans of Mystery Science Theatre may enjoy seeing the guy who played the dead blonde teenager from Soultaker, playing the muscle bound lead actor in the "film" within this movie.
