So, I was flipping through broadcast last night, and I caught just a couple of brief glimpses of a B action flick on a lesser channel.
I would guess it to be 80s/90s in time period. The protagonist seemed to be a hard-bitten, modern soldier-of-fortune in a beret --he looked like Dolph Lundgren, but I'm not sure it was him. In one scene he shares a cigarette with a young man of indeterminate "exotic" origin.
In another scene, he and a character who looked like John Denver, and whom I'm just going to guess was an archaeologist, were held prisoner by some vaguely Egyptian-looking guards with spears that shot out energy bolts, in front of an androgynous young ruler/cult-leader, and a retinue of boy priests. There was some kind of tussle, and everyone got zapped with the energy spears. Then the ruler's eyes started glowing.
That's all I saw of it --can anyone identify it?
