Goofs

When Simon discovers Sandi in his bathtub, the soap bubbles do not hide the fact that she is wearing a flesh colored bra while bathing. The camera cuts to Simon and when it returns to Sandi, the soap suds are higher up near her neck and hiding the bra. The focus returns to Simon and when it switches back once more to Sandi, the soap bubbles are again lower on her body with the flesh colored bra readily visible. See more »

"Strike Force" AKA "The Librarians" is strictly routine B-movie action fare about a team of mercenaries who are trying to locate a kidnapped girl (the granddaughter of the team leader's best friend) and bring down a powerful and sadistic crime boss operating in Miami. The locations are well-shot and the action scenes get as crazy as the budget will allow, however the good guys are just too outnumbered for the outcome to have much believability, and the fight choreography is nothing to write home about. Andrew Divoff makes a convincingly slimy and hateful villain, while Erika Eleniak is a knockout in more ways than one (I don't want to spoil her best scene, but it involves a barrel full of water). Nice to see Matthias Hues again - but is it just me or did they cut out his final scene? And why is Burt Reynolds - even if he appears in only 1 scene - not credited in either the opening or the closing credits? He shouldn't be ashamed of his involvement - he has appeared in worse films than this! (**)
