Israeli propaganda disguised as a boring old man movie.
1 September 2017 | by OrangieTooDopeSee all my reviews

I don't understand the deal with David Janssen.He's supposed to be some kind of action star but he's just a boring old man.The funny thing is that according to Wikipedia he was forty five when he made this and he doesn't look a day under sixty.This story starts with the ridiculous premise that the United States accidentally drops a nuclear warhead on Jordan.Not only does it not explode but they decide to send the most boring old guy they can find to disarm it.There is so little action in this movie that we don't even seem him parachute into the desert.He easily finds the warhead and then the movie quickly turns into Israeli propaganda.There are no Jordanians and all the dialogue is about how the jews have such a tough life but Israel is still the greatest place on Earth.They make all the arabs bumbling fools from a slapstick comedy movie while all the jews are amazing heroes.Weak.Looking at Wikipedia here I see that Janssen's real name is Harold Meyer and his father was a banker.That explains it all.The DVD I watched said this was called Prisoner In The Middle which made a little more sense.I guess Israel Is Awesome! was already taken.I see one of the other reviewers said he fell asleep multiple times trying to watch this.I only fell asleep once so that's why I gave it two stars.It's not a bad movie just boring and unrealistic.If you do somehow start watching this, make sure you watch the whole thing.The end makes it worth wasting an hour and a half of your life.
