Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Arnold Vosloo, Michael Ironside, and Ben Cross headline this action thriller following an anti-terrorism squad on their mission to prevent Russian gangsters from detonating a nuclear bomb in Vienna. Shortly after being hijacked by Russian terrorists, a passenger ferry sinks into the Finnish Sea. Upon unearthing evidence of nuclear materials in the debris, the elite AT13 squad launches a worldwide hunt to track down the responsible parties. Following the trail of evidence to the Austrian capitol, the top-secret unit learns that the same terrorists who blew up the ferry off the coast of Finland have now planted a nuclear bomb somewhere in Vienna. Now, unless the can locale and dismantle the warhead in time, the entire city will be destroyed, and millions of lives will be lost.
