Storyline

The first shot of Mitchell climbing down the rope from the helicopter is clearly not of actor Joe Don Baker, but a much more fit stunt man wearing a watch cap. See more »

Seeing this on MST3K does not count as seeing the movie
11 February 2005 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

How many people who laugh at this film have actually seen it complete? I don't think very many since this film was used as one of the funniest episodes of Mystery Science 3000. But even I have to admit that when you remove a third or more of a movie its very easy to make fun of it.

Thats a shame because as exploitation films from the 1970's go this one is one of the best. No it won't win an award but its unrepentant trash with sexist remarks and dopey action. Joe Don Baker was never a great actor but he could turn in a good exploitation performance before becoming simply a cartoon character.

If you're in the mood for a good mindless action film give this a try. Its better than you think and certainly better that being near the bottom of a worst film of all time list.
