BIRD ON A WIRE
Wednesday 6.30pm, Action/ Adventure (M) ★★
A former FBI informant in witness protection has kept his new identity secret for 15 years, but is recognised by his former fiancée, now a high-powered lawyer. The drug lord on whom he informed is out of prison and looking for revenge. Interminable chases follow. Mel Gibson and Goldie Hawn were huge stars back then, but their teaming in this action-comedy from director John Badham didn’t exactly light the heavens.
