Royce (1994)

MPAA Rating: R
EW's GRADE
C

Details Movie Rated: R; Genres: Action/Adventure, Mystery and Thriller; With: Jim Belushi and Miguel Ferrer

As CIA man Shane Royce, James Belushi cracks wise, ogles gorgeous women, plays poker with little kids, and flirts with his ex-wife (Chelsea Field) — all without much success. But when renegade colleagues hijack five nuclear warheads, it's Royce to the rescue. Belushi has a knack for performing derring-do as if it really were difficult, and that gives the action a decidedly different spin. But deep down, this scenario lacks freshness. Royce is yet another Showtime ''original'' that's anything but. C
