The peaceful existence of boat repairman Blake (Frank Zagarino) is destroyed when the Reverend James (Billy Drago) shows up with his disciples. Back in the days when Blake had been a member of an elite commando force, James had been his friend. But things have changed. Worried that Reverend James has fostered a cult and is planning on a mass suicide, the government sends spies to investigate. The government is also concerned because a prominent general's daughter is among the cultists. When the spies are killed, Blake is forced to reveal his true identity and join the fray to stop James and save the general's daughter. Written by IvanWong

When the congressman's helicopter blows up, it is quite obvious that the explosion is in front of the helicopter, closer to the camera, as not to really damage it. See more »

Drago and Zagarino???
14 July 2000 | by adcdidSee all my reviews

This movie is the kind of movie I would really enjoy if I were 8-9 years old. Since I'm not, this dumb movie about a Death Cult, it's evil, psychopathic leader(Billy Drago, an yes, he does use his favorite acting move, head slightly moved to one side - improves the image of his presumably high degree of mental illness) and retired US marine(not really sure about exact military position), Frank Zagarino who fights them is beyond any bad comment I can give. Also the story includes an US congressman, killed by Drago, mass suicide of cult members(any similarities with Jonestown is purely fictional) and loads of other rubbish either pulled out of more successful(but not really much better) Holywood blockbusters or invented by fascinatingly inventive screenwriters, who have really put their worst in this flick. Couldn't say it's the worst film I have ever seen, cause there are so many, but anyway, stay away.
