This is easily one of the worst movies I have ever seen. This is one of Shannon Tweed's first films. After this disaster, she would go on to become queen of the B-movie, which is why I expected a lot more from this. The acting is horrible, the "special" effects are even worse. The explosions, deaths, and general mayhem of a fire fight are poorly done repeatedly throughout the movie. Oh, the one [love] scene in the movie is hidden behind a rock! What's the frikkin' point of the NR rating!?!

"Firing Line" is one of the worst films to be made in the recent past. Essentially it involves Reb Brown ("Space Mutiny") as an American military advisor on a mission to some fictitious South American country with a rebel problem. Made five years after the Iran-Contra affair, and at a time when the "Rambo" series was extremely popular and profitable, the film may have seemed reasonably topical (though still wretched) at the time: it is now merely another overacted action film.

The film starts by showing Reb Brown picking up Shannon Tweed in a bar. It turns out she's there on business selling "sports equipment" to hotels. (Ponder.) The two of them hit it off, but before long Brown is in trouble, and Tweed gets kidnapped in an attempt to find out information about Brown. The next 80 or so minutes are filled with implausible escapes, lots of gunfire, helicopters, explosions, and Reb Brown yelling "Move!" in the same manner he perfected in the infinitely better (though more comical) "Space Mutiny." Shannon Tweed's assets are largely squandered here, although she does turn in the best performance, and has plenty of time for a relatively immodest swim in the middle of a combat zone. Saying she gives the best performance here should not be confused with an endorsement, however: the scene where she stares slack-jawed at a dead body for several minutes in horror is overwrought enough with pathos to make any reasonable viewer's eyes roll back in their head. For sheer discomfort, watch carefully for the scene in which smarmy Reb and disinterested Shannon run off on a romantic interlude under a waterfall during hostilities.

The film has terrible production values, and makes the most of the limited footage they had of helicopters, things blowing up, and people falling down dead.

If there is one Shannon Tweed movie to watch, this isn't it. Mark Hardin (Reb Brown) aids a Central American government against the rebel forces. He questions their brutality and in an awkward plot point he is immediately suspected and tortured for being a rebel sympathizer and so is Shannon Tweed who just happens to know him. They join the rebel side.

This is a horribly acted and produced film, not even good Filipino exploitation. It is the one to be missing from any Shannon Tweed collection.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, implied rape. Camera angle prevents nude scenes.

The movie was simply awsome. Great sex scenes, plenty of adventure, and of course, plenty of Shannon Tweed.

Wow! I cannot believe how much HOT sex is in this movie. I also cant believe I'm just now stumbling across this masterpiece. A definite must buy if your a fan of SHANNON TWEED or just beautiful NAKED women. Oh yea, be sure to check for the HOT lesbian love-scene near the end!
