International action superstar Jean-Claude Van Damme teams with Powers Boothe in a tension-packed, suspense thriller set against the backdrop of a Stanley Cup game. Van Damme portrays a father whose daughter is suddenly taken during a championship hockey game. With the captors demanding a billion dollars by game's end, Van Damme frantically sets a plan in motion to rescue his daughter and abort an impending explosion… before the final buzzer. It's a wild ride against time that Kevin Thomas of The Los Angeles Times calls "A superior action thriller loaded with jaw-dropping stunts and special effects."
