A plot similar to this film was hatched by H. Ross Perot, as written in the book "On the Wings of Eagles," by Ken Follett about a situation in Iran which was very similar to this movie. To me this film really didn't have hardly anything to do with race, I think the reviewer may be reading a little too much into the plot. For a small action movie, this film was interesting and entertaining. The performance of Robert Duvall is understated and sublime, offset by the tailor-made role of the used car salesman, played by Gary Busey. It seems that Busey really didn't have to stretch his acting skills too much for this role, but it was fun to watch.
