In Under Siege 2: Dark Territory the villain takes over some sort of space-based, earthquake-causing super-weapon that has been launched by the US. He then uses fifty or so satellites as decoys to avoid having his newly acquired toy shot down by the "good" guys.
The concept seems reasonable (or, as reasonable as anything in a film of this kind can be) and it does cause the good guys to waste two perfectly good missiles on the decoys, but then one of the characters makes this little comment:
We don't need a Pegasus. Once we get down to the last one we lock in on the satellite and use the self-destruct.
Then at the finale, they proceed to do just that in less than 5 seconds.
With that in mind, does anyone know of any reason for them not to spam all fifty decoys with the self-destruct codes right away? Apart from it making the whole film - along with Steven Seagal's beating up the bad guys - unnecessary, that is?
