Bannister's Angels

8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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...
