Storyline

A pre-story sequence with Lance Henriksen as a super-spy and an opening credits obviously ripping off the James Bond themes gives hope for a spy story or spoof in the Bond mode. However, the story quickly opens with former USA gymnastics champion Kristie Phillips in the lead role as the spy's unknowing gymnast daughter who gets caught up in the spy's attempts to keep Ukranian missile launch codes from falling into the wrong hands. Sarah Douglas shows up as the Soviet spy trying to get the codes back and willing to kill anyone to get them including Phillips' Mother and brother. Tim Thomerson also appears as a journalist reporting on the gymnasts who gets caught up in the events. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Aims for camp...and scores
28 November 2006 | by smatysiaSee all my reviews

I started watching this film, and I stared at it in disbelief, The acting was terrible, and the plot was outrageous. After another ten minutes, I was saying to myself "They can't possibly be serious." Then it finally began to dawn on me that they weren't. (I've recently started reading reviews and commentaries after watching a film rather than before. I highly recommend this approach for a film you haven't seen and don't know much about) The filmmakers took aim at camp and scored a direct hit. Gymnastics champion Kristie Phillips may or may not be able to act, but it isn't apparent here, and it doesn't matter, because no one is really trying. This must have been a lot of fun to make. And Miss Phillips is very pretty, which also helps. This movie scores if you can stand campy films. If you can't, then run away screaming.
