| He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother
Brawny Kevin Dillon (as David McLean) takes a plane to Germany, where he plans to meet his estranged brother. Upon arrival, he is told what we've seen open the film, that brother Rod Wilson (as Michael McLean) blew up in a car. Mr. Dillon identifies his brother's burned-beyond-recognition body by observing his tattooed arm. You'd be suspicious, and Dillon is too. He discovers his brother was (is?) tied up in a web of espionage. The Berlin morgue makes room for more bodies, as unsavory types search for a missing computer disk, thought to be in one of the McLean brothers' possession.

Dillon befriends pretty blonde motorcycling Andrea Roth (as Monika Engelmann) who, of course, is also interested in finding the disk. Supporting actors Christopher Plummer (as Ulrich Steiner), J.T. Walsh (as Jonathan Zanuck), and Michael Wincott (as Larry Gleason) give the picture some weight. Mr. Plummer works out of the Berlin police department; in a sex shop, he suggests a nuns in bondage video. Mr. Walsh and Mr. Wincott are situated at the American Embassy. Wincott is soft-spoken, but powerful. This was dependable character actor Walsh's last filmed appearance. So, Iain Paterson's "Hidden Agenda" is, appropriately, "Dedicated to the memory of J.T. Walsh."
