Jay Killian (Charles Bronson) had been a Secret Service agent guarding the President, but for the inauguration of the recently elected president, he is assigned to the first lady, Lara Royce (Jill Ireland). Lara, a perpetually indignant, arrogantly feministic lady, initially hates the methodical and rules-following Killian, and so she does all she can to avoid him and disregard his safety procedures. The story complicates when repeated attempts are made on Lara's life. Eventually, the shaken Lara decides to trust Killian's instincts and precautionary methods, and the pair embark on a difficult and often perilous cross-country journey, with the assassins close on their heels.Written by

The leading male and female characters pose as a married couple to avoid unwanted notice from their terrorist pursuers; Charles Bronson and Jill Ireland actually were husband and wife at the time. See more »
In the long shot of Killy on the bike right after the freight train's whistle starts to blow, you can see a very great distance behind Killy down the empty track, with no pursuing hitman's pickup truck visible, even though it is always shown following fairly close behind Jay and Lara in previous and subsequent shots.

Let me start by saying that Charles Bronson is one of my favorite actors and I think my mom found this one on VHS at a flea market back in 2015.
This movie is honestly pretty good, it's entertaining if not a little corny in places but I love it anyway.
Charles is a bad ass action hero in these action movies I'm a fan of his Death Wish films I haven't seen him in a lot but I'm planing on trying to find more with him.
I like in this story that he plays a secret service agent hired to protect the First lady who he doesn't really like, that I feel is a nice change of pace, then your typical standard story, it made for some nice levels of comedy.
Overall, I give it a 6/10. It's just a fun action film that you can sit back enjoy, and see
Charles Bronson kick some terrorist ass.
