Black Moon Rising Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A [[Performer~P84225~John Carpenter~johncarpenter]] story served as the launching pad for Black Moon Rising. Veteran thief Quint ([[Performer~P36238~Tommy Lee Jones~tommyleejones]]) is hired by the FBI to steal some politically volatile computer tapes. The owners of the tapes are displeased, and begin chasing Quint all over the countryside. Just when he's about to surrender his booty, Quint's car -- wherein the tapes are stored -- is stolen by Nina ([[Performer~P29969~Linda Hamilton~lindahamilton]]). She delivers the car to her corporate-villain boyfriend Ryland ([[Performer~P73149~Robert Vaughn~robertvaughn]]), who runs a hot auto ring. Nina then has second thoughts and decides to throw in with Quint...and round and round we go. The "Black Moon" of the title is the name Quint's high-tech, low-slung vehicle. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
