Supreme Sanction TV Movie (1999)
A government assassin develops the most deadly weapon of all…a conscience.
Director: John Terlesky.
Starring: David Dukes (Jordan McNamara), Donald Faison (Marcus), Michael Madsen (Dalton), Ron Perlman (the Director), Kristy Swanson (Jenna).
A government assassin (Swanson), disturbed by the demoralization within her operation, refuses to kill a reporter (Dukes) and instead teams up with him to break his story of corruption in her agency, all while being hunted by her ex-superior (Madsen) and protected by her good natured “gadget man” (Faison).
This is an above average TV movie that’s fun to watch. A decent plot that you actually do have to give some attention to. Enjoyable performances. Not to mention that it was interesting to see half the cast of the comedy “Tinseltown" (Dukes, Perlman, Swanson) reunited in something completely different.
Worth a rent/buy used.
The Region 1 DVD has an audio commentary with director John Terlesky and actor Michael Madsen.
First published in 2004 on The Perlman Pages.
