Jonathan Quill (Clu Gulager) is a very gullible person. A guy approached him some time ago and said that the CIA would like him to be a courier. After all, he travels a lot and could be invaluable to the agency. Without really questioning or investigating, he agreed...and was soon captured and sent to prison for two years. Amazingly, he STILL thinks these folks were CIA!!
Here's where the story starts to get really dumb. Following his time in prison and a divorce, he's feeling depressed and pays some hit-man to kill him (a clichéd plot idea if I've ever heard one). But he then has a change of heart. He hires Cannon to find the killer and stop him but Cannon is more concerned with figuring out WHO these folks were as the project seems nothing like something the CIA would do.
Why does this one merit a 4? Well, the plot is quite simply very dumb and it's hard to imagine a guy as dumb as Quill. To make it much worse, an assassin arranges an exchange and clearly he's also going to kill Quill...yet he bungles it. The guy has a high powered rifle and scope but when Cannon gives chase, he drops the gun and uses a pistol! The rifle was a HUGE advantage...and yet he throws it away...just like that! Overall, a sloppy and silly episode.
