In the movie, the magazine reporter fiance of a CIA computer specialist is executed by terrorists via random drawing while she is on assignment in europe. This infuriates the main protagonist of the movie -- the CIA employee. He collects enough information on CIA sensitive activities to blackmail the agency into allowing him to go into eastern europe so he can locate and eliminate the terrorists that killed his fiance himself.
He is the amateur in a professional's game. The plot is believable, the suspense is tangeable, and the story line not predictable.
I promise that if you like suspense movies, you will love this one! The acting, from main and supporting characters, is good. I particularly enjoyed the character who played the father of the murdered fiance. CIA officers and execs also play their roles (though perhaps a bit stereotyped) quite well.
He gets his way and travels to Czechoslavakia where they have their base .It is there that his problems really start to mount up-the Czechs are not too thrilled by his presence and the Agency renage on the deal and send their own hit squad to take him out .
The premise of the movie is good and the support cast is excellent .The production values are well up to standard and the action scenes are well mounted and credible The locations are attractive too ,with Vienna standing in for Prague .
I was not too impresssed by Savage in the title role -he is a skilled actor but not charismatic enough to carry a movie as the action lead ,and the script fails to build on the "fish out of water "scenario as much as I would have liked
It still remains a very watchable movie however and you could do a lot worse than try to uncover this neglected 80's picture
I don't know how I missed this at the box office, but I'm certainly glad I discovered it later. This will be a good movie to watch on a cold winter's night.

This is a great movie.
Have seen it several times in theaters and cable.
But I am not paying $89.00 for the DVD.
Great movie, but not captioned. In this day and age it is an insult to the public to discriminate, We are people tooPublished on October 19, 2013 by John W. Hargis

So glad that they put this on DVD. This film really did capture my thoughts and attention. The begining grabs your captive attention, that you have to watch it all NOW.Published on February 15, 2013 by Kenneth DeLue
Another far-fetched spy adventure that couldn't/wouldn't happen in any semblance that this film presents. I'm being generous with 3-stars.Published on March 21, 2012 by D. Vick
