Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

A mad bomber implants tiny incendiaries into a batch of pacemakers in this bizarre TV-movie thriller. It's up to Seattle bomb squad officer Judge Reinhold and heart surgeon Penelope Ann Miller to save the walking time bombs. It's a mischievously inventive plot device, but director Paul Antier is unable to sustain the suspense, and the action dawdles off into subplots (particularly the one involving Reinhold's son, Jeff Ballard) before reaching a telegraphed conclusion.
