Despite FBI protection, diplomats are gunned down at a government conference. After completing their executions, the trained killers blow themselves up; Billy Collins (Aaron Lohr), however, gets taken alive.

Amazed by the assassins' modus operandi, FBI agent Ben Carroway (Andrew McCarthy) studies Billy and

quickly recognizes that the sensory deprivation and electrical shock he's been exposed to are the specialty of Dr. Greely (Nick Mancuso). Why? Because Ben's mother worked for Greely and that megalomaniac practiced his evil handiwork on a young Ben. After DNA sleuthing proves that Billy was kidnapped as a child, Ben teams up with Billy's sister to infiltrate Greely's Mexican fortress, little realizing that the government itself is paying Greely to steal children and turn them into brutal assassins. Riddled with out-of-the-blue plot-twists, this is yet another thriller obsessed with hit men, hit ladies, and the psychopaths who condition them. Focusing on the mad scientist angle more than usual, this diatribe against demented medical research goes overboard when Ben gets imprisoned in Greely's kiddie-killer electro-cage. Of all the film's flaws, the hardest to ignore is the Mancuso's egregious hamminess; he plays every role &#151 hero or villain &#151 with the same silent movie melodrama snarl.
