Editorial Reviews

Rick Harden (Michael Dudikoff) is the government's top hostage negotiator. A Gulf War hero who retired from the Marines to solve problems with reason rather than action, Rick is a family man who would rather build a swing set for his daughter than fight. As Rick and his family get ready to leave on vacation, he gets an emergency call from the government. A plane containing the Vice President of the United States is being held hostage by a group of terrorists who are also in possession of a poisonous gas. As soon as Rick-who is unarmed-gets on the plane, he realizes he's in trouble. In the very back, staring down the barrel of a terrorist's gun, are his wife and daughter. Spinning into action, Rick kills one of the terrorists, takes his weapon, and begins a deadly game of cat and mouse onboard the plane-luring the terrorists into dark recesses of the aircraft and then killing them off one by one. With so many lives on the line, Rick must out-maneuver and out-think the terrorists, using every ounce of skill and courage to fight them. But as the minutes tick by, things begin to look grim. Rick is left with two dead pilots on his hands, leaving no one to fly the plane, a crazed terrorist leader who won't seem to die, and a deadly bomb, that could kill millions, set to go off at any second...

I was expecting the usual fair when watching "Strategic Command". After all, most movies featuring Michael Dudikoff promote tons of action. Albeit there was plenty of action in this movie, it was distributed via suspense with regards to plot. Yes this movie has a decent storyline with elements of political espionage. The narrative is quite simple, maybe even trite; Dudikoff plays a former Special Forces agent now scientist (a bit far fetched) who is working on a material called "Bomax", which can kill a person in ten seconds. Another side effect of "Bomax" is a substance that resembles milk is vomited by the victim moments before they buy the farm. It is never really unmasked why "Bomax" was made; it is more or less a plot device.

Well it isn't too long before some terrorists steal the Bomax and hijack an airplane that not only has the Vice President of the USA, among other individuals, but Dudikoff's wife (Amanda Wyss who was in the 80s cult classic "Better off Dead"). I have to say that the flight sequences utilized in this movie were pretty cool and it didn't appear to be stock footage. Digressing to the villains, I want to say that these terrorists are quite a motley crew, right down to the lone female of the group that resembles Lara Croft.

So now it is up to Dudikoff to stop the terrorists. How is this done? Can he save his wife and protect National Security? In order for answers a person needs to get his/her grubby little paws on this DVD. Therefore the answer to Dudikoff's quagmire can be solved. In all honesty, this was a pretty good flick, for a lower budget movie. "Strategic Command" isn't going to win any awards and hasn't broken any new ground, but it was a great way to spend 90 minutes.

He is transported by an experimental plane that is able to dock with plane carrying the President. He get on and finds out that wife and daughter are on the plane also. Pilots are both dead and one of terrorist is flying plane. He starts to play cat and mouse and starts killing each terrorist one by one by luring them to the belly of the plane. Eventually after all terrorists are killed he has to fly plane and land it safely with posionus gas on plane.

This is one of Michael's better movies. Its about the president gets hi-jacked in his plane. The plane has a bomb on it and the hi-jackers are wanting money. So Michael and some other military men are flown up the plane to disarm the bomb and kill the hi-jackers. He kills the hi-jackers, then he realizes that he has to fly the plane and land it. Its a good movie. It kepted me interested in it.

This is a good action movie. I stumbled across it by accident but found it held my attention. Highjacking story that is fully of suspense and drama.
