A teenage boy who's bullied both at school by the seniors and at his home by his abusive father finds an experimental laser weapon in a river and ponders revenge. The army general who lost the gun sends his units after the kid.
In an attempt to sign a Hollywood starlet, struggling talent agent and former child star Howard Holloway must contend with her volatile father, a scheming long-time rival, and a producer and casting director who despise him.
This is a very rare movie I saw way back when (it came out on hbo or showtime) at a very late hour. The first thing you will notice (the only thing) is Karen Medak. She makes this movie watchable simply because of her presence. The movie is terribly written and directed but her acting and beauty as a seductive criminal at work makes the ride worth taking more than once. The "theme" song is also somewhat good. It's a very low budget movie, but still worth watching. Call it a guilty pleasure. We all have them. This was Karen Medak's only starring role and that is a shame. I highly recommend this movie to simply watch her in action. It is only available in VHS right now (laserdisc too! BUT who has one anymore? not me!)and you might find it hard to pick up a copy... well, anywhere. So good luck.
