The "Fickle Finger of Fate" in action
25 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** With secret service agent Tom Fisk in a coma after being shot by an unknown assailant hospital orderly Zack Walker and his fiancé nurse Maria Hernandez get involved in a dispute over a bachelor party that Zack's to attend that evening where he'll be the guest of honor. Suddenly Zack is transported from the Phoenix hospital to a seedy hotel room in downtown Portland Oregon two days into the future. Not quite making out what's happening to him Zack finds a gun and map of L.A giving him instructions in where to go and what to do without any real explanation of what it's all about! Jumping into his car that just happened to be parked outside the hotel Zack with as much as a blink of the eye finds himself in a L.A Chinese restaurant exchanging $5,000.00, where the hell did he get the cash, with gun moll Mei Ling for a gun that's undetectable to x-ray machines to be used for what the hell can he, being in total confusion, know bout!

Now finding himself at a swanky L.A hotel Zack starts to put two and two together with a map and the hotel's lay out and who's expected to show up there that afternoon: The President's daughter Michelle Carson! Trying to warn secret service agent Carl Taggart, agent in a coma Fisk's partner, that somehow someone is planning to knock off or assassinate Michelle Carson. As the out of control and hysterical Zack is about to be arrested and detained for psychological evaluation he knocks Taggert cold and make his way to the hotel to prevent that tragedy from happening!

****MAJOR SPOILERS**** Zack does make it to the hotel lobby but as it later turned out it wasn't exactly him who was there. It was the almost brain dead Fisk who in using Zack's body did his job in protecting the President of the United States and members, his daughter, of his family from being killed! As fate had it by it using Zack to do Fisk's work made him the real hero of the hour and as an added bonus gave Fisk, in Zack's body, the satisfaction of him knowing that he got the job down! That while he was lying flat on his back and in a coma hundreds of miles away!
