An act of sabotage that shocked the civilized world! The Sinking of the Rainbow Warrior is the dramatic true account of the bombing of the Greenpeace flagship and the murder of one of its crew. The ship (commanded in the film by Jon Voight, Runaway Train) was bombed in Auckland harbor in 1984 and the relentless investigation by the New Zealand police (led in the film by Sam Neill, Jurassic Park) revealed a surprising culprit. The Rainbow Warrior symbolized the massive anti-nuclear efforts of the worldwide Greenpeace organization. Veteran film and television director Michael Tuchner (Fear Is the Key, Villain) directed this suspenseful drama co-starring Bruno Lawrence (The Quiet Earth), Kerry Fox (Shallow Grave) and Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess).
