    U.S. Seals II: The Ultimate Force

    So this was made as a 'straight-to-video' title at the height of the video boom, one of a number of low-budget military-themed movies churned out by Nu Image. Full credit then to Isaac Florentine for a hugely entertaining, non-stop action fest with plenty of inventive choreography and general exploitation mayhem. Grad the pizza and beer and strap in for a wild ride.

    Travis McGee

    ★★

    Based on John D. McDonald's THE EMPTY COPPER SEA, this ABC TV movie has ace creative collaborators delivering a routine thriller that plays dull for long parts but is enlivened by the game cast. Director Andrew V. McLaglan directs a meandering script by prolific screenwriter Stirling Silliphant. Sam Elliott is solid as McGee, his laid-back narration is exposition heavy but this is a TV movie dependent on moving at a pace. Clearly made for a budget, this lacks the edge of the more thrilling Mcgee movie Darker Than Amber and never gets out of second gear.
