Now this was one of those TV-movies I watched on cable as a kid and never forgot. Imagine the premise: a world class nut case enjoys DEMOLISHING tall office buildings WITH PEOPLE STILL INSIDE in an attempt to get the woman of his dreams!! Sure, it looked a bit cheesy as the footage of the collapsing buildings were -from what I remember- stock-footage of real (empty) buildings being demolished, but snappy editing made it look for real. One scene I'll never forget was when one of the supporting actors ran for his life down the emergency stairs as the floors above him where detonating one by one, sadly just when reaching the first floor the last charge detonated in his face and the entire office building came tumbling over him!
Back then Gerald McRaney was a hero of mine from the show "Simon & Simon" and the beautiful Heather Locklear was a superstar from her role as Sammy Jo on "Dynasty". They made a great team as a cop on the "city killers" trail and the girl on the killers mind.
For years I thought this would make a great re-make for the big screen but after the destruction of the twin towers in New York I can see why nobody would even dare to dream of such a re-make, despite the exciting premise that would have the CGI-guys going nuts!
