Laser Mission (1990)
Soldier of Fortune
Nomination Year: 2000
SYNOPSIS: When brilliant scientist Ernest Borgnine is kidnapped by terrorists who want to use his revolutionary laser for evil purposes, it's up to his daughter and CIA agent Brandon Lee to rescue him and keep the laser out of the hands of the terrorists.
Good games to play during this film include "spot the accent" with Borgnine and "try and guess which country the film is set in."

- Inane Dialogue

"At least now we're out of danger."
- Worst Acting
Ernest Borgnine, Professor Variable Accent #2
Professor Variable Accent (perhaps he taught The Lost Idol's Dr. Variable Accent?). Is he Scottish or is he German? We don't know and neither does he.
