Terrorists take over a plutonium bomb and threaten to detonate it in a Saudi Arabian oil field. A special anti-terrorist unit is sent in to stop them.
As the Soviet KGB agent Dracha. Though prominently billed, Kinski appears only briefly. He would play a similar role not long after this film in The Little Drummer Girl (1984).
During the KGB Training Camp scenes in Minsk there is an AM General M715 and a late 1970s GM station wagon seen in the camp.
The UK cinema version was cut by 4 secs to remove blood spurts from stomach and head shootings though video releases lost a further minute from a scene where a light bulb is fitted with a booby trapped bomb which explodes later. The 2004 Cinema Club DVD restored the cinema cuts but retained 1 min 17 secs of edits to the bomb-making scene.
