Plot

When a rival businessman Jenner threatens his daughter Diana, tycoon John Wellington hires Secret Serviceman Jack Travis to protect her. In turn, Travis hires the eccentric mercenary Baxter, also a former SS agent, to assist. So, Travis and Baxter are hired to protect his daughter.It all seems simple enough at the beginning, but shortly after the bodyguards meet Diana they quickly find themselves in an increasingly complex and deadly situation in which almost no one is exactly who she or he seems to be.

  • Reception

    Sandra Brennan of Allmovie gave the film one star out of five. The Fort Scott Tribune gave the film two stars out of five after the film was broadcast on American TV on June 12, 1997. Both books Video Source Book: Video Program Listings A-I and VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever gave the film two and half out of five stars. The book DVD & Video Guide 2005 (Ballantine Books) gave the film three out of five.

    Dragan Antulov of rec.arts.movies.reviews gave two out of ten, stating "...cynics would say that Peter Weller and Robert Patrick seem like an excellent choice for the roles of mercenaries because they played killing machines in their best known films. Author of this review tends to agree with that, but their presence alone is not enough to save Decoy from well-deserved road to "straight-to- video" oblivion. Everything else is a complete mess - the plot is incoherent, the action scenes look terrible, so in the end Decoy sinks below the standards, which are lowest, even for B movies. The only thing that is relatively pleasing to the eye is the use of Saskatchewan locations but the viewers might do themselves a great service if they watch some documentary instead of this."
