User Reviews

 
Mean-spirited and below average.
31 July 1999 | by Renaldo MatlinSee all my reviews

Rich guy Busey takes the matters into his own hands when his yacht is hijacked and his family taken hostage by cold blooded terrorists. Brutal "action-adventure" not worthy an actor of Gary Busey's calibre.
