| Troubleshooters Trapped in Clichés
Who loves Kristofferson films …..I do. There is no other reason to watch this film.

The premise isn't bad though …. professional rescuers have to tunnel down into a building that has sunken into the earth, after an earthquake, to find survivors. The rest is pure TV pap ( this must have been a busted TV pilot) with every cliché thrown in .... head of the team is separated with an estranged son, son's ex girl is with his brother now... the usual family squabbles against a dramatic backdrop. Although here the family squabbles are underwritten ( just alluded to) while the dramatic backdrop is killed by a small budget and no tension.

Some similarities with the "Hellfighters" where John Wayne plays a firefighter ( which had enough clichés itself) does not help the feeling of deja vu. Mind you although Kris' part is small he steps into the John Wayne shoes fine.
