SYNOPSIS:  Rutger Hauer is a British mercenary hired by Carol Alt to retrieve her kidnapped son from her estranged husband's father (Omar Sharif).

She insists on accompanying Rutger on the mission and the predictable hijinks ensue.

Inane Dialogue

Except for Them
"Nobody would rescue you."
Flash grenade! Cavalry!

Worst Acting

Richard Buckingham Clark, Arabian Badness
Richard Buckingham Clark plays the Arabic gentleman conversing with Rutger Hauer in this scene. He not only holds his own against Rutger (no slouch), he eclipses Rutger in terms of sheer badness.
