Routine, but amusing.

Hunky actor Ken Wahl, shortly before attaining TV stardom on the series 'Wise Guy', here headlines what is pretty standard B action fare. Wahl plays Jack Corbett, a Vietnam veteran turned hotshot journalist, whose daughter Jessie (an appealing Nicole Eggert of 'Charles in Charge') is kidnapped by a bunch of feeble-brained Neo-Nazis for a purpose that eventually becomes clear. In the time-honoured tradition of routine action movies, our hero realizes that he can't rely on the cops. Detective Milnor (Doug McClure, whom you may know from "Humanoids from the Deep") is a useless grouch who can't abide the yogurt diet that his wife has him on. So Jack turns to an old Army buddy, Phil Horton (George DiCenzo, 'Helter Skelter') for help.

Wahl and the under-rated DiCenzo are capable heroes in this adequately handled (by director Joseph Manduke) low grade action fare. The villains are a bunch of repulsive goons who can't die soon enough, and sure enough, whenever a firefight erupts, they never can hit a target. At least the movie is effectively manipulative in getting you on board to root for their destruction. And the daughter is a fighter, which is good to see. Milnor is such a stubborn dummy that by the end you kind of wish that Jack would pop him one. The action scenes are decently handled by stunt co-ordinator / second unit director Spiro Razatos, and the music is one of those classic cheesy 80s electronic scores.

A couple of familiar faces turn up, such as Xander Berkeley ("Candyman") as a villain named Yo-Yo (he plays the character as a childish moron), Colm Meaney ('Star Trek: Deep Space Nine') as an explosives expert who makes sure to let us know that he's not really on board with the villains' cause, Bill Morey ("Death Race 2000") as Jacks' disapproving father-in-law, and Al White (one of the jive talking dudes from "Airplane!") as a detective who takes the time to impress upon Milnor that Jack is no "wimp writer" as Milnor puts it.

This is mild entertainment for an hour and a half, if you're looking for a no-brainer to fill up some time.

Five out of 10.

For die-hard Ken Wahl fans only.

When transporting a prisoner who says "Maaaannnnn" after every sentence goes awry, it opens the floodgates for a gang of baddies in a wood-paneled station wagon to go on the loose in the L.A. area.

Meanwhile, washed-up drunken newspaper reporter, Jack Corbett (Wahl) is sort of drifting through life. After he got out of 'Nam, he had a daughter but his wife died. His beloved daughter Jessie (Eggert) lives with her grandfather but Corbett has custody for one weekend a month.

One weekend with her, he stops at a convenience store with Jessie so she can get some candy. The wood-paneled gang - who have tattoos of the Greek letter Omega on their arms - just happen to hold up the place and kidnap Jessie.

Corbett finds the police to be unhelpful, mainly because Detective Milnor (Doug McClure) has been put on a diet by his nagging wife and he is grumpy because he has to eat yogurt all day. Luckily, he has a loose twizzler he can dip in the yogurt when no one is looking.

Corbett's next stop is his old buddy "Philly". He is an expert in guns and owns a shooting range. He even admits to selling guns to some gang members in his past, so Philly and Corbett "interview" some crips and bloods and turn up not too much information. Soon enough, the two ex-GI.'s are hunting high and low for Jessie and punching and threatening plenty of people along the way. Will they find the auto garage hideout of the evil rednecks and rescue Jessie? A good performance from Ken Wahl, in all his mulleted glory, unfortunately can't save this tired and unengaging premise. It should have been like "Taken" but wasn't by a long shot. A guy going rogue, defying the police and everyone else on a no-holds-barred mission to find his daughter seems like it should have worked here, but "Omega Syndrome", which seems to have been marketed like some sort of spy/conspiracy thriller for no real reason, lacks the grit and intensity needed to pull off such a feat.

For 80's action fun, there are better places to go than the lackluster "Omega Syndrome". For die-hard Ken Wahl fans only.

Hopeless Nazis

The bad guys in this film are a gang of stupid neonazis, who of course can't shoot straight when it comes to killing the heroes, a couple of Vietnam veterans (What a novel idea!) Sadly, you can't take them seriously , and you know from the start that the cute smart alec teenage girl is going to get the better of them.

Very corny indeed.
