Lawrence Gray plays a reporter who witnesses a sea captain getting robbed by crooks in a scam after delivering $40,000 in silks. Paid in cash, it is a setup to steal the money back. After Gray takes the money from the crooks, the chase is on by the crooks to find the money which seems to go on a longer voyage than the silk ship.
There is of course the captain's daughter who caught Gray's eye in the first place as the tacked on love interest, and Fuzzy Knight, the friend in the delicatessen meant for comedy relief, and who fails miserably. You don't expect great acting in B-movies of this sort, but this one is particularly bad, and only Lawrence Gray at least manages to not make you roll your eyes.
While B-movies are known to have poor fight choreography, it is usually at least short. This one aspires to be an action movie, and manages to include several fight scenes that drag on and on, even when the crooks are holding guns that they won't use.
Not amusing enough to be camp, not interesting enough to enjoyable diversion, this movie is best avoided.
