Overall, this isn't a bad film - no shocks, no surprises and you can see the twists coming a mile away. Odd little bits in the film made me laugh; people getting the use of the words anagram and acronym mixed up and foliage being pronounced "foilage". Thank goodness there were no libraries, nuclear reactions and nothing happened in February.
If you want something Pacino, De Niro or James Woods would appear in, steer well clear of this. If you want a Friday night film to have a few beers with - you could do a lot worse. Once again: Julie Smith - WOW!
Bruce Penhall is Chris Cannon again with Mark Barriere returning as Mark Austin. Julie Strain - Black Widow - and Rodrigo Obregon - Antonio Morales - are also back as the bad guys. Samantha Phillips joins the team as Samantha Maxx. You may remember her as Alchemy in Phantasm 2. Plus, there's also Julie K. Smith (one of four girls to do both Playboy and Penthouse and yes, I can tell you that Alexandria Karlsen, Linn Thomas and Victoria Zdrok are the others) as Cobra, Wendy Hamilton as Scorpion (December 1991 Playboy Playmate of the Month) and Gerald Okamura as Fu.
The International World Arms Removal project is a satellite system which has the ability to detect any weapons, no matter their size and even under the most difficult weather conditions. Soon, Black Widow and her troops are trying to take out all of the scientists, who are under the protection of Agent Maxx.
This is the only film in the Sidaris universe where the agents work for I/WAR (International/World Arms Removal), but late in the film, it's revealed that Strain's character works for L.E.T.H.A.L.
Look, any movie that starts with Julie Strain tying a dude up and riding him reverse cowgirl until she kills him isn't going to be all bad. This one has more actual sex scenes than the films of the elder Sidaris, but perhaps that's what people wanted as we moved into the 1990's.
Everyone finally converges on Dallas and gets connected. Morales (Rodrigo Obregon, who turns in the best performance here) is a computer chip expert and his life is being guarded with great care, but is he good or evil? Only time will tell, although the plot gets so insanely twisted that little is certain here. The best way to handle this situation is to give four agents a different computer chip in a necklace to wear, because...well, just because. Do not try to make too much sense of any of this, as there are Jacuzzi scenes to see, along with pointless distractions like horse racing and a really bad scene of dessert consumption. This one features some truly appalling dialogue (e.g. "I'd like to suck the polish off your toes!") and an extremely confusing attempt at explaining the story concisely with some revisionist history; the film concludes somewhat ambiguously after treachery, romances, and double-crosses. Here like in the awful "Enemy Gold" (also helmed by Drew) Bruce Penhall as Chris Cannon grounds the cast, while Julie Strain is still over the top, and occasionally painful to watch. Still, I'm glad Cobra is on the case, and while this doesn't rival Andy SIdaris' best works, it does show an improving trend for Drew. I like to see younger filmmaker's work, and this installment in the Sidaris genre may be bafflingly confusing, but let's be honest: nobody came here to count the holes in the plot.
