Weird, but watchable
It's standard stuff for the first half or so, with a plot that's a pretty blatant rip-off of THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR. Then suddenly we get some twists in the plot that are so silly and/or jaw-dropping, you can't help but get sucked in. And it had a very memorable ending. Film suffers from typical Roger Corman cheapness (including ripping off footage from a famous made-for-tv movie), and the action scenes sometimes get pretty dumb, especially when you see wimpy C. Thomas Howell attempting to be an action hero. Verdict: if you like B-movies, and you don't mind them a little cheesy, you'll probably like this.
