This flabby martial arts/action picture's primary appeal is the pneumatic splendor of the stars' chests. Ex-CIA honcho Roy Brown (Carl Weathers) heads up a maverick team of good samaritans who tackle difficult cases in the manner of TV's "The Equalizer." Along with military veterans Hunter Wiley (Shannon Tweed), Mike McBride (Terry "Hulk" Hogan), and Derek (Mike White), Roy helps a woman regain custody of her daughter, who's been kidnapped by her Austrian millionaire spouse. After this retrieval proceeds smoothly, Mike becomes obsessed with a face on a wanted poster. Mike has trouble convincing his cohorts that this fugitive is really their old nemesis, arms merchant Dr. Sarkisian (Gerard Plunkett), transformed by plastic surgery. But they come around, and Mike is determined to pay back Sarkisian for using chemical weapons on the Gulf War squadron Mike had commanded. With the aid of computer whiz Andy Powers (Martin Kove), the shadow warriors follow Mike to Sarkisian's lair. There the quick-thinking Sarkisian injects Mike with a fast-acting fatal virus. Do the Shadow Warriors have time to stop Sarkisian from selling a toxic mega-weapon to the highest bidder and also locate the antidote that will save Mike? On the plus side, this made-for-cable movie's demolition effects are top of the line and the martial-arts choreography is above par. If only the predictable death-defying exploits didn't unfold at such regular intervals, and their outcomes weren't so drearily preordained.
