Senators contrive to lay their hands on an important communications device and sell it to the enemy, they send a CIA special team to fetch it out of Bosnia. The team is to be liquidated, its leader thinks to keep the item, a cohort disagrees, they have a falling-out and divide it uselessly.

Jerome Katz, known as “Raven” (his name is a resounding joke from Peckinpah’s The Killer Elite), eliminates the murderous Senators one by one and trails the subordinate. Post’s Magnum Force is cited in the last scene with homage, the CIA have come to collect the gizmo, it and they are blown up in a company car.

The style is related to Andy Sidaris, with the pointed satirical flair and beauty that are his specialty.

Burt Reynolds has the title role, with a good deal of freedom.
