Malta is the location for this Jean-Claude Van Damme martial arts thriller, in which the Muscles from Brussels plays a KGB killing machine intent on seizing a laser guidance system lost in a US jet fighter crash.
Of course, there’s the little matter of high-kicking CIA hero Ken Tani (Sho Kosugi) – codename “Black Eagle” – wanting to lay his mitts on it, too.
Directed with undue fuss and maximum noise by Eric Karson, this action fest is a far cry from the world of passwords and microdots.
