Overview

Synopsis

The Spy Killer
Written by horror-film specialist Jimmy Sangster, Spy Killer stars Robert Horton as a secret agent turned private eye. Framed for murder, Horton is released, but only after promising that he'll track down a book containing a list of government agents who are operating covertly in Red China. The reluctant spy discovers that he can't completely trust anyone in this endeavor--not even his former chief (Sebastian Cabot). Spy Killer was produced for American television by Britain's Hammer Films, then released theatrically overseas. The film spawned a sequel, Foreign Exchange (70), once again starring Robert Horton and Sebastian Cabot, with Jill St. John reprising her heroine role from Spy Killer. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Notorious
In this adaptation of Hitchcock's 1946 classic, a CIA agent's cover is endangered by her sister-in-law who begins to suspect her true identity. This could be fatal as the agent married an arms-dealer to get information from him. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Buffalo Soldiers
Australian director Gregor Jordan makes his sophomore effort with this tale about crooked U.S. soldiers based in Germany during the waning days of the cold war. Special Fourth Class soldier Elwood (Joaquin Phoenix) guards against the Soviets while on duty, and rips off the U.S. military while off duty. Handsome, calculating, and thoroughly amoral, Elwood runs a profitable black-market business that operates just below the official radar. He and his associates make drugs to sell to his fellow GIs; steal Army supplies, selling them to a German connection; and a host of other dirty deeds. One day, he and his gang uncover some loot that will land them some real money -- high-tech military weaponry. As they try to quietly offload the stuff, the new sergeant, Robert K. Lee (Scott Glenn), catches on to Elwood's nefarious deeds and sets out to put him out of businesses. Elwood, in turn, catches on to the fact that Lee has a very attractive daughter (Anna Paquin) and sets out to bed her. This film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

The Stray
A woman's compassion may be her downfall in this suspense drama. Kate (Angie Everhart) is a wealthy woman who runs a successful restaurant and is involved with the rough-edged but well-meaning Ben (Michael Madsen). One day, Kate's car hits Gil (Stefan Lysenko), a homeless man who was crossing the street. Kate is mortified and takes Gil to the hospital; when she learns that Gil has nowhere to go, she offers, over Ben's strong objections, to let him stay at her estate as he recuperates. As Gil recovers, Kate finds herself becoming attracted to the interesting stranger, but Ben soon learns that Gil has a few secrets that set him apart from just another guy who will work for food. The Stray was the first feature film directed by former editor Kevin Mock. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Embassy
Nick Mancuso stars in the made-for-TV Embassy. Cast as an American ambassador stationed in Rome, Mancuso's life is thrown into turmoil by a crucial computer chip. When not trying to keep U.S. defense secrets from falling into the wrong hands, he must juggle the affections of his press-attache-girlfriend, (Mimi Rogers), and his girlfriend's chief rival (Blanche Baker). Embassy was intended as the 2-hour pilot for a weekly series; it didn't sell, but Nick Mancuso's next venture in the TV-pilot field, Stingray, proved successful. Embassy was initially telecast on April 21, 1985. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Hidden Assassin
US Marshal Mickey Dane is sent back to his native Prague to investigate the assassination of a Cuban UN ambassador. The prime suspect is professional hit woman Simone Rosset, the lesbian co-owner of a posh restaurant there. The other owner is Simone's girl friend. Mickey catches Simone, but then she escapes. He and his partner CIA-agent Alex Reed, catch her again and take her into the countryside until they can sneak her back into the States. As time passes, Mickey begins suspecting that she is innocent of the crime. Simone swears that she has retired and hasn't left the Czech Republic in over five years. Finally convinced, he and she head back for Prague only to find themselves even more deeply entangled in a complex conspiracy, treachery and violence. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Booster
His brother facing conviction for armed robbery, Simon (Nico Stone) agrees to commit a series of similar heists in order to create reasonable doubt, and ensure an acquittal. But in preparing to carry out the crimes, he experiences an intense crisis of conscience. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Spenser: Ceremony
Spenser: Ceremony stars Robert Urich as Robert B. Parker celebrated private eye. The story involves Spenser and his partner Hawk (Avery Brooks) attempting to keep a teenage girl safe after her life on the streets leads her to discover criminal truths about a prominent politician who has a taste for teenage prostitutes. Barbara Williams portrays Susan Silverman, the only woman close to Spenser's heart. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
