A Marine gunnery sergeant, trained as an expert marksman, has his once prominent career cut short during Operation Desert Storm when he refuses to follow an immoral order. Years later, while on death row, he's recruited by a shady Army officer for a routine assignment that requires his expertise, but things don't go according to plan and he suddenly finds himself framed for the murder of the First Lady. On his own and outnumbered, it's now a race against time as he tries to piece together the clues that will help clear his name. Wayans and especially Voight play their parts respectably, and there are a lot of fatal escapes, but there's no energy and not enough surprises to hold your interest in this tired thriller. **
