Danger Zone (1996)

For an action film Danger Zone has a relatively complex story, characters with ulterior motives, local militia conspiracies and an alcoholic protagonist making this an ambitious film.

Billy Zane is the aforementioned protagonist and he plays it well, considering the average material he is given. However, it is Robert Downey Jr. that steals the show with his outrageously over the top character. Even though he is essentially a neutral-to-bad guy I found myself laughing whenever he was on screen.

Still plenty of guns and explosions but my mind started to wander at around the hour mark. Bearable rather than enjoyable.
