Mission Kill is an action-packed thriller from 1985 directed by David Winters and starring Robert Ginty, Olivia d'Abo, and Merete Van Kamp. The film follows the story of a former Green Beret, John Seeger (Robert Ginty), who is on a mission to rescue his sister and her fellow journalists from a dangerous terrorist group. At the beginning of the film, Seeger's sister Chris (Merete Van Kamp) is working as a journalist in a war-torn Central American country. Chris, along with her colleagues, gets captured by a group of terrorists who are holding them hostage for ransom. Seeger, who is living a quiet life in the United States, receives a call from Chris, asking for his help.

Despite his initial reluctance to get involved, Seeger eventually decides to go to Central America to rescue his sister and her colleagues. He partners up with a local guerrilla fighter, Delgado (Henry Darrow), who also wants to take down the terrorist group that has been causing chaos in the region. Along the way, they meet Claire (Olivia d'Abo), another journalist who escaped from the terrorists and joins them in their fight.

Seeger and his team launch a daring rescue mission to free the hostages from the terrorist's stronghold. However, the mission is not as straightforward as they thought, as they soon discover a vast conspiracy involving the US government, the Central American government, and the terrorist group. Seeger and his team find themselves in a dangerous game of cat and mouse, fighting against heavily armed enemies who are determined to stop them at any cost.

The film is full of thrilling action sequences, including shootouts, car chases, and explosions. It has a gritty and realistic feel, with the violence and brutality reflecting the harsh realities of the region's political turmoil. Despite its violent nature, the film also has moments of humor and camaraderie, with Seeger's team forming a tight bond as they fight for their common goal.

The acting in Mission Kill is solid, with Robert Ginty delivering a convincing performance as the tough and resourceful Seeger. Olivia d'Abo is excellent as Claire, and her chemistry with Ginty adds a touch of romance to the story. Merete Van Kamp is also impressive as Chris, bringing depth and emotion to her character.

The film's cinematography is excellent, capturing the beautiful yet dangerous landscape of Central America. The music adds to the tension and excitement, with the score composed by John Scott perfectly complementing the action on screen.

In summary, Mission Kill is an engaging and exciting action film that combines thrilling set pieces with a compelling story. It has a talented cast, breathtaking cinematography, and a great score, making it a must-watch for fans of the genre.
