As the star of Knight Rider, you've seen him fight crime from behind the wheel of one of the most advanced automobiles ever, and as the leader of the Baywatch team, you've watched him rescue countless innocent souls from being swept out to sea -- now join television superstar David Hasselhoff in his most daring journey yet as he takes to the sky in this edge-of-your-seat action thriller from writer/director Sandor Stern (The Amityville Horror). Temporarily reassigned to air traffic control as a result of his maverick attitude, Jake Gorsky (Hasselhoff) is a New York City helicopter cop who never shies away from a good fight. When a well-organized group of bank robbers blows up nearly all of the bridges in Manhattan in an attempt to distract authorities and clean out the Federal Reserve Bank, the NYPD believes the action to be the work of a terrorist group run by Mr. One (Miguel Fernandes) -- but Gorsky knows better. Determined to save the bank and rescue his girlfriend, Michelle (Kathy Ireland), Gorsky once again bucks authority to launch his own offensive and take the skies back from the murderous bank robbers.
