Tony Plana gives a great performance as the cool as ice, over-libidinous arms runner with an inside angel at the DEA (convincingly portrayed by Animal House alumni Mark Metcalf). High production values and taut direction by accomplished veteran Bill Duke act like a fresh breeze (almost) strong enough to blow the putrid stench of the previous Sheena Easton episodes out to sea.
Overall this is an exciting MV with an intriguing and complex plot that remains unpredictable and intelligent...that is, until the final scene. To wrap things up the bad guy makes the head scratching decision to jump his stolen boat off a (conveniently placed) ramp and then aground, which causes him to blow himself and his precious cargo to kingdom come. Not sure why he'd opt for death over a million other (less lethal) options, but this is what he does. Then again, his decision might have had less to do with free will than it did with need to wrap up the show before the allotted 48 minutes expired. Convenient conclusions aside, at least season 4 is back or track.
