| A Low-Budget Action Film
This film begins with a pilot named "Cliff Adams" (John Schneider) landing his small airplane onto a makeshift runway near a plantation in South America which is owned by a drug lord by the name of "Gonzolo Reyes" (Ferderico Luppi). It's during this time that his colleague flying with him is killed in cold blood because he was suspected of skimming off some of the proceeds. Needless to say, this displeases Cliff quite a bit because he knew that his friend had been set up. From that point on, however, Cliff becomes a target by others within this criminal organization due in large part because of his attitude and the fact that he knows too much about those within the business. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that films like "First Blood" and "Missing in Action" were quite popular during this time period and this fact inevitably resulted in a plethora of copycats-with this particular picture being one of them. Unfortunately, it wasn't one of the better ones as it suffered from poor acting, a bad script and more than a few unrealistic action scenes. In short, I didn't find it that appealing and have rated it accordingly. Below average.
