That is a really long plot summary, but maybe that will help convince you to see this one. While nothing amazing, and not the sort of film I would typically watch... it has that 1980s action thing going on. Okay, not much (the action is pretty mild for Latin American terrorists) -- but enough.

This is one of the first things director Michael Kennedy ever did. And, despite a score or more of films under his belt, none jump out as anything you have ever heard of. He did nine episodes of "The Kids in the Hall", but whether or not these were good episodes is beyond me.

I would definitely give this another chance, especially if Shout Factory were to pick it up and turn it into something a little extra special.
