Flashback Friday- Counterstrike (2002)

The subject of spies, espionage and government has long fascinated audiences. It explains why James Bond has been around as long as he has.

14 years ago, author Richard P Henrick published his novel, Attack On The Queen. It told the story of two brothers, both working for different government agencies, who must stop a nuclear clock from exploding under a cruise ship where the Chinese Premier and the American President are meeting for a G-7 Summit.

In 2002, the book was adapted for screen and renamed Counterstrike. Starring Joe Lando and Rob Estes as the brothers, they must put their past animosity aside to the prevent the bomb from going off and killing two of the world’s power powerful leaders.

To be fair, this is a TV movie. And the actors are not huge A list stars. But it is entertaining and the producers, knowing that the fans of the Lost World would be watching, were very wise in their casting decisions.

I recommend it.
