Okay action thriller with good stuntwork

Robert Forster plays a stuntman who discovers his younger brother, also a stuntman, was killed during filming of a movie plagued by production problems. He suspects foul play and must discover what really happened. He eventually finds romance with an ambitious journalist doing a story on the movie, but he discovers something more sinister when his other stuntmen pals start turning up dead, one by one.

The stunts make up for the rather standard plot, plus there's a nice supporting cast including Fiona Lewis, Ray Sharkey, Richard Lynch, Candace Rialson, Bruce Glover, and James Luisi.
