If Scheider is as tired of sailing TV’s seaQuest as he has said he is, he should remember the stuff he was doing before — like this internationally made (and set) hodgepodge of romance and intrigue. Despite the title, he’s not a covert assassin — he’s an ex-commando, hired by a baroness (Patricia Millardet) to catch an elusive terrorist leader whose identity is clumsily concealed behind a series of smoke screens. Convoluted as this elaborate plot is, it still moves so arthritically that you’ll have it figured out well ahead of our hero. Another season of seaQuest DSV, anyone? C-
