The plot is a complicated affair but it boils down to the kidnapping of the president for ransom. If it was a decent film I'd have gone into more detail, but as it's a pile of doo doo there's just no point.
The alternate is a man who takes the place of one of the regular crew in an op when the regular can't take part. Here it's played by Eric Roberts. John Beck plays the prez and Ice-T is around for about 30 mins. Michael Madsen, who I bought this film for, has a small role but looks pretty cool in sunglasses.
Ok, so there's a fair bit of action with shooting and explosions but most of it is just not realistic. On top of that the dialogue is plain bad. Even the humour between action scenes is lamer than lame. The whole thing is poor and while there's a decent cast around it just goes to show that good actors can't always save a dire production.
