In This Game, It’s Either Win – Or Die! Get ready for Beverly Hills to crash and burn as Ken Wahl (The Soldier, The Wanderers) takes a one-man stand against one of the most daring heists ever conceived. When a toxic chemical spill sends fumes billowing through the city, emergency teams are on the spot in minutes to evacuate all civilians and set up quarantine. But it turns out that the spill is really a hoax and the emergency personnel are a crew of criminals executing an epic scheme on the entire city. There’s only one hitch in their plan: Boomer Hayes (Wahl), a pro quarterback and local resident, and an undisputed master of moving downfield against the odds. Boomer skillfully evades a deadly SWAT tank and dozens of hired guns, but as the army of criminals are closing in fast, he’ll have to use every trick in his playbook and more – if he’s going to survive this real-life sudden-death match. Veteran filmmaker Sidney J. Furie (The Ipcress File) directed this action-packed thriller that features unrelenting suspense, spectacular stunts, colossal pyrotechnics and the irreverent destruction of this haven of the rich and famous. The stellar cast includes Harley Jane Kozak (Arachnophobia), Matt Frewer (Max Headroom) and Robert Davi (Die Hard).
