On the whole, this is the sort of action movie that comes to the public by the hundreds. A group of evil terrorists take a couple of helpless girls hostage, a burned out, stand-alone hero saves the day and that is about it as far as the plot is concerned. However, as far as the standard formula goes, it is quite well done. For one thing, a number of hosages actually gets killed, making the story more realistic then usual. For another, the cast seriously tries to develope the characters they are supposed to play. Handicapped by the rather two-dimensional script they do not succeed completely, but at least the intention is there. The rest of the movie is made up out of explosions, some good martial arts and even the occasional comic releave. ( A legless Hauer floating in the water is quite a funny sight ). All in all, nothing special, but quite worth watching.
