In this game, if you don't win, you die!
They might seem like your everyday couple but Jersey Bellini (Michael Dudikoff) and his girlfriend BB. (Lisa Howard) are in the kind of business that really strains a relationship. They're Fugitive Recovery Agents - bounty hunters. When things go horribly wrong for BB during an arrest she decides to call their partnership quits, and just in time because mob boss Mr Wald (Tony Curtis) has ordered the interfering Jersey eliminated.
The hit is given to an ambitious underling, Crazy Carlos (Steve Bacic), who hires ex-marine bomb specialist Tyler to do the job. An explosion destroys Jersey's home but he miraculously escapes, enraging Carlos.
When BB. learns that her partner's life is on the line she comes to his aid to protect his back.
Power-hungry Carlos initiates a plan to become Number One man by eliminating the top three crime bosses, Wald, Vissoni and Unger. Tyler, now on the run from police, is given one last chance by Carlos to redeem himself. He must not only finish the job on Jersey but also blow up the crime bosses at a meet at Carlos' warehouse on the docks.
Explosive circumstances lead Jersey and BB to the warehouse and a final showdown ensues... but just who will survive?

Secret Agent Acid Thunder
Michael Dudikoff makes a desperate attempt at re-entry to the world of motion pictures. Fortunately, someone realised this and kept him away from danger.
Hardball: what a disaster. Terrible cinematography, bad plot, horrible effects and ugly acting. Michael has a voice like Jerry the mouse, friend of Tom, and he performs like a 2-year-old in a toy shop.
I decline to waste further electrons to comment on this film.
