Hi, Everyone, This film has Leon Isaac Kennedy billed as Leon Isaac. He is the rottenest villain in the story. He is superb as a likable monster.
James Inglehart is all things good, but still willing to smash a person's head. The hero is part of a trio of bad guys who aren't real bad at the beginning of this movie. James takes it personally when his buddies try to kill him. The scenes where our hero is learning martial arts are very well done. The casting is very true to character. A nice mix of an Asian martial arts pro who is believable and very funny and White and Black and Asian good and bad guys and girls in a 70s era story.
The one song sung by Jayne Kennedy is played instrumentally throughout the film. It is actually a nice song that could have become a hit for that time period.
The movie has lots of good location shooting. Lots of scenes in a Pacific Island and scenes on a boat mix with street scenes in Los Angeles and then Mexico.
I got this as part of a 50 Martial Arts movie package for about $19. It is well worth that and it is worth much more. If you like action, this movie should give you plenty.
Leon Isaac Kennedy was one of my favorites in the early 1980s. He was always tough yet he had a smile for the ladies that made him appear to be a a real sweetheart.
One last observation about this movie is something to watch for in the barbershop scene. What is the price of a haircut? In this nice barbershop it will cost you only... $2.
