    ★★½

    A cold war action thriller about a defecting Russian general, directed by Mark Robson and featuring a very well-known cast, yet you probably haven't heard of it. Why? Check out the trivia on IMDb. Tragedy. And the movie suffered from it.

    Bring out all your superheroes, tear down all the CGI cities you want or destroy complete planets for all I care, I will always prefer this kind of pure action. And Baxley was quite good at it in those years. Dolph Lundgren too, that's a pretty sweet roundhouse kick early on, but his ruthless cop is also having a bad day as his partner goes down. In comes a new one. A by the book fed. That means male bonding…
