Storyline

Scuba-diver turned beach-bum Jonathan Slade is forced back into his previous milieu - the world of international espionage - in order to retrieve Black Boxes from an American jetliner that crashed under mysterious circumstances into the Black Sea. With his computer-hacker younger brother, Slade travels to a resort on the Russian-Turkish border to begin his quest. To his surprise and dismay, he's now joined by another secret agent, a beautiful but highly-skilled woman named Alex. As they begin diving in search of the downed jetliner, Slade and Alex begin to suspect they're being manipulated by higher-ups who may not be committed to American interests. Written by dinky-4 of Minneapolis

B-Movie Classic
7 February 2003 | by Wain_DKSee all my reviews

In the B-Movie genre, this one is a top contender. It has it all; lame plot, tough hero, comic relief, hot female sidekick etc.

The fight scenes are good, seeing as how Matt McColm is a stuntman (I think). The movie doesn't make a lot of sense all the time, but as I said - It's one of the top b-movies.
