Diplomatic Immunity is a 1991 action-thriller movie that features Bruce Boxleitner, Billy Drago, and Tom Bresnahan. The film starts with an introduction where former CIA agent, Dalton (Bruce Boxleitner), is becoming a writer after his blissful retirement. His life takes a turn when his friend, Jack Winder (Tom Bresnahan), who is a U.S. senator and a presidential candidate, gets assassinated while in Africa. Dalton, who is Jack's close friend, decides to investigate his death, and he soon finds out that his death wasn't a natural one.

Dalton's investigation takes him to Mbabane, the capital of Swaziland, where he meets Eric (Billy Drago), a South African arms dealer, who Dalton suspects is behind Jack's death. Eric is a wealthy man who is well connected with people in power, and he has the full protection of the South African embassy in Mbabane. Dalton knows he can't stop Eric without diplomatic immunity.

In his quest to bring Eric to justice, Dalton makes contact with Karen (Michelle McBride), an American journalist who lives in Swaziland. The two of them join forces to uncover Eric's dirty dealings and the people involved in Jack's assassination. Together, they unfurl many twists, turns, and multiple action-packed scenes.

As Dalton and Karen gather relevant evidence, Eric's plans to smuggle arms appear to become more dangerous. Dalton realizes that he and Karen aren't the only ones in danger. The situation becomes even more chaotic when Dalton gets picked up by the Swaziland police and learns that the South African embassy is working hard to have him extradited and brought to account for breaching diplomatic immunity.

Despite the odds against him, Dalton doesn't give up. He is determined to pursue Eric and bring him to justice. In an interesting scene, Dalton confronts Eric in a hotel room, but things quickly turn sour. They eventually escape from the hotel room but in different directions. What follows is a breathtaking chase through the streets of Mbabane, with Dalton evading Eric's men and trying to get to the American embassy in time.

The climax of Diplomatic Immunity features a thrilling showdown at the American embassy between Dalton, Karen, and Eric's men. The action scenes in this movie are epic, with high-speed car chases, shootouts, and hand-to-hand combat.

In sum, Diplomatic Immunity is a classic action-thriller that keeps the viewer engaged throughout.
