"CIA: Code Name Alexa" is a pretty long-syllabled name for any movie, and as things would have it, the movie isn't all that special. It isn't all that bad, either, but unless you're a particular fan of Lorenzo Lamas and Kathleen Kinmont, there isn't enough quality action to make this worth abandoning bigger films for.

The story: an international mercenary (Kinmont, Bride of Re-Animator) is arrested and recruited by a CIA agent (Lamas, The Immortal) to recover a nuclear microchip sought by a crooked South American diplomat (Alex Cord, Airwolf).

The elephant among the cast is, of course, O.J. Simpson (The Naked Gun series), playing a police officer seeking revenge for the murder of his partner. This is one of the last film roles Simpson had prior to the infamous trial two years later that effectively ended his acting career. His character isn't all that relevant to the plot, spending most of the movie trying to catch up to the Lamas and Kinmont characters, but surprisingly, the film reminds us that O.J. was actually a pretty decent actor back then. Kathleen and Lorenzo likewise do well enough, though I'm disappointed that the two of them don't have all that much chemistry together. Alex Cord, that great character actor, slings an accent so hokey it'd make Kevin Costner laugh, but he's likable enough as a performer for me to forgive it.

Highly, HIGHLY recommended! You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to experience this amazing example of a taut, galvinizing saga that runs the gamut of life affirming pathos not seen in any Hollywood "product" before or since the release of this outstanding study of the human condition. It most definitely stands the test of time and is essential that this cinematic gem be seen by all the world's leaders.

Kathleen Kinmont is awful in every way, but there's a whole lot of bad acting to go around here, including of course O.J. Simpson. There is no possible way to believe that Kinmont and the kid have any relationship, much less mother-daughter. The special effects are hilarious, though. I love the way the bodyguard creeping through the utility passageway suddenly turns into a stunt man being blown off a ledge, while magically reversing direction in mid-air! They must have loved that special effect, because they used it for two different deaths! What a joke. I only bought the DVD because my late friend Bil Barratt played the bodyguard who got blown up. Otherwise it wouldn't even be worth the $2.50 I paid.
