Blessed with gorgeous location photography, this schlocky action movie poses an age-old question: "How are you going to keep a secret service agent down on the campus after he's saved the whole world?" Meet Harry Gordini, former crack special-forces operative (code name: Wolverine) turned college professor. He's ten times smarter than the DEA, a hundred times smarter than any old drug cartel and devastatingly handsome to boot. It's no surprise Antonio Sabato Jr. wanted to play this dual dynamo, who accidentally comes into possession of some super dope while vacationing with his family in Sardinia. Second rate gangster Adolpho Jones (Danny Quinn) goes ballistic when his mule fails to pick up a drug-filled suitcase at the airport. Adolpho's life on the line, since the luggage was filled with $200,000,000 worth of high-quality narcotics belonging to his uncle (Ted Roussoff). Meanwhile, the Feds, who've been monitoring the situation, assign Agent Banes (Richard Brooks) to locate the unfortunate who picked up the wrong suitcase. That turns out to be Gordini, who's mighty angry when Jones's goons interrupt his vacation and threaten his family. Harry is more than capable of protecting his wife and son from drug thugs, but also has to cope with the DEA's willingness to jeopardize Harry's loved ones in their eagerness to solicit Jones's testimony. Fans of mindless action scuffles will be pleased to know that David Jackson keeps this made-for-cable movie's rough-and-tumble sequences moving at a satisfying clip. But Robert T. Megginson's script is straight off the assembly line when the dialogue gets dull, you can amuse yourself by predicting the plot's twists and turns.
