Media personality Stuart Lancaster (Frederick Coffin) is a Rush Limbaugh-type blowhard who's running for President on an anti-domestic terrorism ticket. In reality, however, he's the hapless dupe of military Machiavellians who, masquerading as foreign Red 5 extremists, blow up U.S. rockets, subs and satellites in order to fabricate a xenophobic panic that'll allow them to control our destinies. As the election draws nearer, an ex-soldier turned government assassin named Ed Downey (Jeff Speakman) is enlisted to terminate Lancaster and thus create a patriotic martyr. Afterwards, Downey will get bumped off just like Lee Harvey Oswald. What this right-wing splinter group wasn't counting on, however, was that Downey would get wise to their evil scheme and have a change of heart. After convincing TV news-hen Robin (Stephanie Niznik) to help expose their subterfuge, Downey must save Lancaster's life and persuade him to accept a 360 degree change of ideology. Holy Patriot Missiles! Another military conspiracy thriller? You can't trust anyone these days, especially schlocky screenwriters. It used to be that every other action flick ripped off THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME, but these days the video marketplace is clogged with adventures about Pentagon and CIA zealots who detest defense budget cuts and yearn for the days when you could blame everything on the Commies. Where are Colin Powell and Norman Schwarzkopf when you need them?
