===Story=== At the height of his financial troubles, Burt Reynolds took just about any acting job that came along. Some were critically acclaimed projects like ''Boogie Nights''. And some were like ''Raven''. Burt is the title character, the leader of a special ops team who discovers the decoder he was sent to recover is slated to be sold to U.S. enemies, for the personal enrichment of some top CIA officials. He decides to sell the decoder himself while killing the men who betrayed him, but his former brother-in-arms sets out to stop him. Burt's smart: if you're going to do a low-budget, cookie-cutter, action flick like this, play the villain. It's a whole lot more fun. Even so, he seems to be holding back. He did five films in 1997, the year ''Raven'' came out, so maybe he was just tired, but the trademark boyish grin lacks its usual gleam. Director Russell Solberg is a stuntman who's worked on such films as ''Tombstone'' and ''Die Hard'', so at least the action scenes are pretty good. ''--Geof Miller''
