Warhead is a 1977 action-thriller movie directed by John O'Connor, starring David Janssen, Karin Dor, and Christopher Stone. It is a fast-paced film that follows the story of John Adams, an American intelligence agent sent to Germany to topple a terrorist organization that has acquired a nuclear warhead. The movie opens with an intense scene where a group of terrorists hijacks a train in West Germany carrying nuclear warheads. The group member leads by Lotar, a former Nazi, demands the release of some political prisoners in exchange for the return of the warhead. The authorities, led by Harald Winter, vehemently oppose the idea and seek other solutions.

Meanwhile, in the United States, John Adams, a CIA agent who is specialized in disarming nuclear warheads, received orders to fly to Germany and join the team led by Harald Winter. At first, Adams is hesitant to go on the mission, but he is eventually convinced of its importance.

Adams arrives in Germany and quickly gets in touch with Harald Winter and another agent, Sarah. Together, they start planning and gathering intelligence. Soon, Adams discovers that the terrorist organization, led by Lotar, is not working alone. They have allied with a criminal organization that operates inside Germany's borders.

Adams and his team receive a tip that the warhead is being hidden in an abandoned castle owned by a member of the criminal organization. They act quickly, and in a thrilling night operation, they infiltrate the castle to retrieve the warhead. However, the operation is compromised, and the terrorists manage to escape with the warhead.

From this point on, the story becomes a race against time as Adams and his team try to retrieve the warhead before it falls into the wrong hands. The group does everything in their power to stay one step ahead of the terrorists, including using a variety of tactics, from planting hidden cameras to tailing the terrorists' cars.

The stakes get higher as the terrorist launches an attack on a nuclear power plant, and the authorities have no option but to call in Adams and his team. Time is running out, and in a spectacular climax, Adams must face his greatest nemesis to save Germany from the threat of a nuclear attack.

The acting in Warhead is impressive, David Janssen brilliantly brings John Adams to life, and his chemistry with the rest of the cast is exceptional.
