Hidden Assassin ★ The Shooter 1994 (R)

French hit woman Simone (Detmers) supposedly shoots the Cuban ambassador to the U.N. and escapes back to her home base in Prague, followed by Czechborn U.S. Marshal Mickey Dane (Lundgren). Mickey starts to doubt that Simone is the killer (she claims she's long retired and is being set up) and the duo try to find the truth amid lots of double-crosses. Doesn't make much sense in any case. 89m/C VHS, DVD . Dolph Lundgren, Maruschka Detmers, Assumpta Serna, Gavan O'Herlihy, John Ashton, Simon Andreu; D: Ted Kotcheff; W: Meg Thayer, Billy Ray, Yves Andre Martin; C: Fernando Arguelles; M: Stefano Mainetti.
