Storyline

To Mac's surprise, for the first time in 20 years his grandpa Harry, who raised the genius after his parents's untimely death in a car accident, accepted on that anniversary to join him for a hockey game. However Mac forgot the tickets, so they look for them in Pete's office, just when the Phoenix Foundation building is penetrated by ruthless killer Victoria James alias Susan Murphy, who was hired by the terrorist Liberation Front to plant a bomb which Mac disarmed in Kuwait and now wants to destroy it with its record before it's traced to her. After noticing Mac, she negotiates the front to pay her $100,000 extra to kill him and uses the Front stooges she planned to kill anyhow, but a few Macgyverisms overcome their clumsy attempts to imprison and kill Mac, while she deletes the bomb's inventory file and holds Harry hostage. The duel to the death is on... Written by KGF Vissers
