Storyline

Thomas is sent to observe the testing of a new laser. He sees another agent doing the same thing. Later some women steal the laser. Thomas tries to stop them but fails. But he manages to damage the gem needed. In order to draw the ones who stole it out, Torque poses as an African who is selling a similar one. And sure enough someone comes to buy it but so does the agent Thomas saw at the testing. He lets the one who has the laser get it. But when he refuses the buyer's check, they steal it. But Thomas follows them hoping to recover the laser. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Bannister's Angels
23 September 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Sloane and Torque are in France, watching technicians testing a new laser gun. Suddenly, they are attacked by a group of 'schoolgirls', who make off with the weapon. Sloane tries to stop them, but is overpowered and thrown out of a speeding truck. Luckily he has managed to steal a ruby without which the gun is useless. Only two more like it exist in the world. Posing as an African king, Torque auctions the diamond to the highest bidder, hoping it will lure whoever has the gun into the open. The party most interested is Bannister, leader of an all-girl terrorist squad known as 'Sweethearts'. But someone else is too - Anna, Sloane's Russian counterpart...This story is a virtual remake of 'Death Ray 2000', which had not been transmitted in the U.S.A. at that point. The idea of Sloane of teaming up with a beautiful Russian spy was a nod to 'The Spy Who Loved Me', released two years earlier. Why does Sloane discuss the mission with The Director, with Anna only a few feet away? Sloane's latest gadget is a comb that fires an incapacitating ray. Obviously of no use whatever to Xander Cage...
