The Tactical Neutralization Team, or T.N.T., is a squad of elite soldiers sent on top-secret, near-suicidal missions around the world. After one of their missions ends in failure, team member Alex decides he's had enough of the special-op life and calls it quits. His commanding officer, however, doesn't want the security risk of a former member walking around, so he assigns another member of the team to hunt down Alex and retire him permanently.
You'd think a pro would learn how to count his bullets! Olivier Gruner (Alex) does not, but he's not bad otherwise. His French accent is sometimes overly notable, and his Jamie sometimes sounds awkwardly close to Jimmy, but otherwise he's good. He looks good. He has energy and charisma, and seems a suitable pick for the action hero role that he here plays. And Rebecca Staab (the commonly mispronounced one) looks her part as well.
The movie idea's pretty basic, but for a nineties B-movie action flick you can't expect too much. The action scenes are - albeit somewhat basic - also authentic and fast-paced, and the sheriff's revolver tricks in particular were cool to see. Sometimes he seems like the most authentic one of all, even if he doesn't have a role that'll let him exercise that greatness (Randy Travis).
It is a B-movie, but if all you're looking for is a little easy, cheesy nineties action, then look no further, this is one of those. If time allows I think I'll watch a few more Olivier Gruner movies later on too, since it seems he's had a steady career all the way till present day - and most of it in action-sounding titles. With a bit better sets and scripts they might be pretty good!
rated 3/5: not bad
