I found this DVD by chance, having never heard of it. I was very moved and impressed by this movie. I like Patrick Swayze and it was good to see him in an action packed thriller as an ex -CIA agent called back to solve suspicious terrorist activity in a post cold war Russia. Based on the book of the same title by Frederick Forsythe, the writing is crisp and very believable. It is filled with suspense and keeps you on the edge, at the same time allows you a glimpse into the workings of government agencies during and after the cold war's. Quite a chilling thought to know that something like this can happen for real. This movie is good on a lot of levels. If you like action thrillers , or you are a fan of Patrick Swayze, Michael York, Patrick Bergin or Ben Cross, you will love this movie.
