Take that, not-America! Ridiculous Chuck Norris actioner actually manages a few moments of genuinely intense (if heavy handed) suspense drama with a surprisingly distinguished cast, but as soon as Chuck and crew saddle up, it takes one preposterous turn after another into cheesy but extremely entertaining Reagan-era mayhem. Alan Silvestri's hokey score seems to know what's up.
This movie is as racist as the Nazi films about Jews during the Reich. It’s an anti-Arab propaganda piece made by Cannon that made no secret about their dislike of the Arab world and wanted to make a Pro America/Pro Israel piece. Movies like this helped shape a lot of Americans negative image of the Arab world that exist today. Disgusting film that everyone who worked on it should feel shame about
