5.0 out of 5 stars A Cinematic Warning About Governmental Abuse of Power 25 Feb 2006
By Charles J. Rector - Published on
Essentially, Supreme Sanction is about abuse of power. A clandestine U.S. government agency called Alpha Section is engaged in Counter Terrorism or CT. The government has been cutting back on funding for counter terrorism (you can tell this was made before September 11th, 2001) and the administrators of Alpha Section come to the conclusion that if their agency's funding is ever going to be restored to its previous high level, then the agency is going to have to create a domestic terrorism scare by engaging in terrorism itself.

The movie begins with a helicopter belonging to an alleged terrorist group in Arizona shooting down a National Guard chopper. Another guard helicopter then shoots down the terroristic copter. In the ensuing investigation, the lead investigator starts to come close to the truth about the alleged terrorist group and just who is behind it and Alpha Section reacts by having one of its top assassins, Jenna (Kristy Swanson) kill him off. This assassination not only removes a threat to the agency's agenda, but it also helps further a domestic terrorism scare in the country.

However, unknown to the Alpha Section higher-ups, Jenna became disenchanted with her job once she realized the full implications of the hit. When the agency tasks her to assassinate award winning TV investigative reporter Jordan McNamara (David Dukes), her feelings towards her employers come to a boil and she rescues him from a certain death. Both Jenna and McNamara are subjected to a harrowing chase by terroristic government agents who will stop at nothing to kill them off.

Eventually, they make their way to the secret hideout of the "invisible man" Marcus (Donald Faison) who is a scientific genius of the first order. Marcus helps Jenna and McNamara craft a plan aimed at both eliminating as many government thugs as they can as well as exposing the evil Alpha Section as the out of control agency that it really is.

While the above may sound like a farfetched plot, the way that this movie is executed, it is a well done action thriller and it actually holds up to repeated viewings. The acting is very good especially by Swanson, Faison and Ron Perlman in the role of the chief administrator of Alpha Section. Of all the main actors, only Michael Madsen turns in a poor showing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all. 19 Jan 2005
By Tressa L. Breen - Published on
A government assassin develops the most deadly weapon of all...a conscience.

A government assassin (Kristy Swanson) refuses to kill a reporter (David Dukes) and instead teams up with him to break the story of corruption in her agency, all the while being hunted by her ex-superior (Michael Madsen) and protected by her good natured "gadget man" (Donald Faison).

This is an above average TV movie that's simply fun to watch.

Be on the lookout for Ron Perlman as "the-iceman-cometh" bad guy looking through the world with rose colored glasses.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but rather Deja Vu. 9 May 2000
By AJ - Published on
This is really a shame. Supreme Sanction is a fast-moving, enjoyable action thriller, but so much of it has been copied from other movies. The 'assassin refuses to shoot and becomes a target himself' theme is straight out of Replacement Killers. The 'Government agency fakes terrorist attack to get more funding' comes out of Long Kiss Goodnight' and the helicopter stunts that open the movie are the same footage I saw in Firebirds. This said, Supreme Sanction is a well acted movie with a good script. Madsen an Swanson do an interesting 'good killer/bad killer routine' and the score and effects were quite decent. A pity they could not get a more original story.

Always loved this movie. There is a background clip not included here where Ms. Swanson indicates a bit of real hostility to Mr. Madsen. Of course he is always the hero or the turd you love to hate.
