The Russkies -- At It Again.
29 April 2017 | by rmax304823See all my reviews

It's not bad for a TV miniseries, although you really don't get to know most of the characters, famous names or not, as other commenters have noted.

The exception is Harry Hamlin as the newly appointed head of one of those security agencies within the US government whose existence is kept so secret that everybody knows about it. He's having the usual trouble with his wife, the criminally radiant Kim Cattrall. I call it "the John Wayne problem." Are you more in love with your job or your wife? Any normal man would have no such trouble with Kim Cattrall. He would quit his job at once and do whatever she told him to, just for the chance to squeeze and bite her once in a while.

It seems the Russians or some fractious subgroup of them, have stolen a couple of nuclear warheads, put them on a ship in the Mediterranean and are schlepping them to Benghazi. Hamlin's mission, should he choose to accept it: recover the missing missiles by deploying Special Action troops to take over the ship. Meanwhile, there is the problem of a spy in the Special Advanced Ranger Task Force Agency.

It's all handled pretty well, considering that the budget could hardly have been lavish. The climactic shoot out, though handled in a pedestrian manner, is still exciting. I missed the usual cliché in which -- while trying to disarm the device that will shortly explode and sink the ship -- somebody had to choose between the red and green wires.

The acting is of professional quality with no one particularly standing out. Rod Steiger must have been hired for about two hours' worth of work time.
