After the end of the Two Years Gulf War leaders of Arab countries decided to sign the Treaty of Peace but the summit talks were wrecked by terrorists who had seized an Iraqi nuclear reactor, threatening to attack the United States. Spearheaded by Americas best Tomcat pilot Tom Dickson (Michael Dudikoff), the Rapid Deployment Forces code-named Freedom Strike were assigned to infiltrate into the enemy rear, liberate hostages and neutralize the terrorists. Their mission is complicated by the fact that national security is in jeopardy.

Even though I own the DVD and am a Michael Dudikoff junkie, I don't thinkI'd call this one of his bests. The story is average (U.S. forces fightagainst terrorists), the execution lackluster, with some limp direction (andediting) here and there. The quieter moments between Dudikoff and beautifulco-star Felicity Waterman are nice, showing a slightly-romantic side ofDudikoff that is rarely seen. I think he would do well in a romantic comedy.Tone Loc is okay, and the guy who plays the terrorist leader hams it up wellenough. The action scenes are typical for these kind of low-budget movies(gunfire from ordinary machine guns seem to cause explosions upon impact,lots of bad guys die, some characters do stupid things like hesitate toolong before firing, etc. etc.), the direction looks like it was phoned in,and it seemed like the writers changed plots twenty minutes into the film.Not among Dudikoff's best, but it would beat an infommercial late atnight.
i enjoy most of the well-written movies that Michael Dudikoff has been in. the story and acting in this particular movie was good, but could have showed more of the 'human' side of Michael's character.
