Rob Greene has information about an undercover terror team inside the CIA led by Joe Connelly. To stay alive with the knowledge, he is advised to stay undercover by his supervisor Andrews. Connelly's men try to kill Greene, but he can escape and warns his son Danny that he also may be in danger and that he should look for Dog Thompson, an old military friend of Greene's. Together with Thompson and Bone Conn, another ex-soldier, Danny tries to escape Connelly's henchmen. Meanwhile, Connelly figures that Danny's friend Lisa would make a good target in order to get Danny and also his father. Written by Thomas Meyer <i03a@zfn.uni-bremen.de>

Did You Know?


Sandra Bullock's film debut. See more »


A member of an assassination team is being pursued down a hall by one of the senator's security detail. Between them, five people step out of an elevator into the hallway. The bad guy turns and fires his gun in their direction - only two shots - as they all dive or fall to the floor, before the security man guns him down. In the next shot, all 5 bystanders are on the floor, either dead or dying, with pools of blood visible below three of them. See more »


Dog Thompson: Y'know, I know this really sounds like a whine, but ah... I like aggressive women!

Dog Thompson: D'you like fat guys?
Mrs. Black: Yeaaaaah... I like them dead!

Don't be fooled
15 March 2006 | by tgrube1See all my reviews

I won't go into detail about why this movie deserves an awful rating, plenty of other people have already done that. Suffice it to say that out of the over 400 movies that I've owned on DVD, this is the ONLY one that I got rid of- it was so worthless that I couldn't see ever wanting to watch ANY of it again.

However, I do have a comment on the ridiculously high average rating of 2.9 (as of 3-15-06). While skimming through the 4 pages of reviews I saw no rating higher than 3 stars. Looking at the voting history, 78% of users rated the movie as 4 stars or less. It looks to me like a few people are stuffing the ballot box to keep this movie off of the IMDb "bottom 100" list. It would be interesting to see how many of the 30 users who rated this movie as 10 stars (none of who wrote a review of the movie) are actual active users.

Don't be fooled, this movie isn't worth your time.
