Exciting and Cool Thriller.
19 August 2005 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

"Crusader" is another good film from Bryan Goeres. He's 4 for 4 because of this, "Art Heist", "Face Of Terror", and "Phase IV".

The plot is about Hank Robinson (Andrew McCarthy) who is a reporter for a local news station in Spain. He inadvertently gets footage of a massacre at a powerful computer company. After that he is hired to be a top reporter for VisionTV run by Archie McGovern (Michael York). Hank gets assigned other stories by Nicola (Bo Derek) but the story that got him into the big time turns into a battle of deceit, double-crosses and murder.

Andrew McCarthy is great. Michael York puts in a fun performance. Bo Derek is okay.

In the end: There's a lot of action and suspense to definitely warrant a rental.
