I think to say about this movie is that it's not bad for a B-film. Armand Assante has shown a lot of character and depth to his role. As Frank Banner, he doesn't liked to be jerked around by anyone, anywhere. When his pregnant wife was killed during the move of defectors, Frank took this thing very seriously. Bringing back the crew may not have been easy, it was worth the attempt. Giving the amount of money would make anyone comeback to work for the Government. Leo(Robert Foxxe) was a formative, yet seedy character who would do anything to put Banner on the payroll again. Filled with philosophical interpretations, this movie wasn't boring. And the sacrifices the fighters made were heroic. At least Jana, the widow of a fighter didn't lose her life. For Frank, he got the bigger pay than any of his superiors, if it wasn't for the book "War and Peace" by Leo Tolstoy. This reaps the rewards to other spy films. It was subtly entertaining from the beginning to the end. Rating 4 out of 5 stars.
