Directed by
Robert Michael Lee

FBI agent Jason Wells (Brennan Elliott) is the only man who can dismantle a terrorist organization, the sinister Division 5.

But they know who he is, so he has to fake his death and then infiltrate the cadre to destroy it from the inside.

When he manages to bluff his way in, he finds out that the principal assassin Quinn Simmons (Dudikoff) is tired of killing. He agrees to teach Wells the basics of the hitman's trade before he retires. In an attempt to minimise the suffering of his victims, Simmons has made a rigorous study of the human body, finding the 600 pressure points by which he can kill felicitously. Isn't he just the boy next door?

Before Simmons can retire and try a career in acupuncture, he and Wells uncover a government conspiracy. The hunters then become the hunted for one final pursuit. Dudikoff is his usual steady self, winning our sympathy despite a rare all-star appearance for the bad guys. Director Robert Lee rolls the film from action setpiece to shoot-out and keeps the tension high.
