Cheesy, Cliché and Campbell
30 November 2013 | by meddlecoreSee all my reviews

This is a ridiculous, cheesy, and cliché low budget action-thriller, starring Sean Astin and Bruce Campbell.

Matt (Astin) is a lowly ski patrol agent that is trying to win over the father (Stacey Keach) of his wealthy girlfriend (Suzanne Turner), whom he hopes to marry despite the class conflict.

Meanwhile, a group of terrorists- led by Bruce Campbell- are smuggling in a Russian nuclear device, with plans to blow it up in a major city.

Things go awry for his vengeful plot when the plane carrying the device crashes at the ski resort where Matt works. While out looking for a lost Forest Service Agent- whom he eventually teams up with- the two find the downed plane with the nuclear device shortly before armed men show up.

Matt soon finds himself embroiled in the middle of a full blown terrorist situation. One in which the love of his life has been taken hostage.

Will he be able to save his girl and the day, while winning her father over in the process? It's nothing a few stingers can't handle...

While totally implausible on a number of levels, it does have a few nice'n'culty shots. Overall, it's pretty cliché, with a Die Hard plot and Andy Sidaris ending, but it's perfectly watchable.

And it does have Bruce. Now, cmon....
