Overview

If a bulletproof action hero were to exist in the real world, would he throw a fit about not fitting in? If a born loser who couldn't break into Hollywood found a new sense of purpose by joining a terrorist group, would he still be a wannabe filmmaker? Now suppose L.A.'s Chief of Police was suffering from a brain tumor during a surprise attack and the FBI agent on the scene practiced medieval medicine. What would happen if you placed all these characters in a hostage situation at a major film studio and tossed in some A-list movie stars as captives? Horace Thimble (aka Mohammad) has invaded Mogul Pictures and is holding their top actors—as well as the studio's upcoming summer releases—hostage. But his foolproof plan doesn't take into account special effects wizard Dexter Brubeck's lucky talent for survival. Although Horace has the LAPD, FBI and the entire nation on its knees, it's the insurgent team of Dexter and his ex-girlfriend who become the real threat to the terrorist's plans.
