Very poor showing
16 March 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

TERMINAL RUSH is a very poor showing, even for fans of Don "The Dragon" Wilson and his admittedly less-than-stellar filmography. This one's one of those DIE HARD rip-offs that filled video shelves at your local Blockbuster back in the 1990s, with terrorists taking over the Hoover Dam and lone renegade cop Wilson the only man who can stop them.

Sadly, this film is so cheap-looking and ineptly staged that it's impossible to enjoy. There isn't much action really, just a lot of overacting, and the action when it does arrive is mechanical and rather dull. Wilson isn't really on form either, and seems to be struggling with his role; he never really convinces as a Native American either.

The bad guys are played by the tag-team of Michael Anderson Jr. (LOGAN'S RUN) and Roddy Piper (THEY LIVE), doing their best impressions of Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Busey in UNDER SIEGE. Their overacting is frankly an embarrassment. Old-timer Brett Halsey (RETURN OF THE FLY) has a minor part, but there's no reason to bother tuning into this waste of money and time.
