Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this thriller, Harry Gordini (Antonio Sabato Jr.) is an American travelling through Europe with his wife and his young son. While at an airport in Italy, Gordini mistakenly claims the wrong suitcase, a seemingly simple mistake which becomes much more complicated when it's discovered the bag he picked up is loaded with illegal drugs. Gordini is in Sardinia when he discovers his mistake, and tries to turn the contraband in to the United States embassy there, but Adolpho Jones (Danny Quinn), the powerful drug dealer who was supposed to receive the bag, is a few steps ahead of him, and abducts Gordini's wife and child, with the drugs as ransom for their return. But what Jones doesn't know is that Gordini is no ordinary traveler -- he's a former Navy SEAL who is not about to let any harm come to his family or any threat against them go unpunished. Code Name: Wolverine was adapted from a story by noted suspense author Frederick Forsyth.
