Review

More action silliness starring Corey Haim. This time he is 17-year-old Lance Elliot who while working as a summer intern at the CIA suddenly finds himself in the middle of a contrived crime plot. It's just as dull and unengaging as one could have feared. Placing Haim against type looks to become easier and easier, seeing as there's no longer very many roles he can fill convincingly. The surprisingly star-studded cast list includes John Rhys-Davies, Karen Black, Anne Francis, and an incredibly annoying Brigitte Nielsen.
