PACKS QUITE A PUNCH.
6 November 2000 | by (CARDIFF,WALES) – See all my reviews

This is one tough little movie that races along in a series of well done fistic confrontations until its hero bounty hunter Zachary Kane gets his man in a long,drawnout slug fest which brings the picture to a satisfying if exhausting conclusion.Rugged leading man Robert Viharo as Kane makes for a charismatic lead along the lines of the great William Smith whom he resembles.It is typical of many "B" 70s actioners that emerged at the time but is better than most as it has strong,convincing performances from a generally unfamiliar cast and does not pretend to be anything more than what it is;namely a satisfyingly macho thriller that is worth 90 minutes or so of anyone's time.
