Storyline

Mike fa il cacciatore di squali, ma è un uomo misterioso del cui passato nessuno sa niente, nemmeno la sua donna, Juanita. Poi arriva Acapulco, esperto sub, che fa subito amicizia con lui. Ma la situazione precipita quando si presenta Donovan, accompagnato da Rosy, che in passato ha lavorato con il capitano Gomez per l'Organizzazione. Mike in realtà è l'unico a conoscere la posizione di un aereo inabissatosi con cento milioni di dollari e certo cento milioni di dollari fanno gola a molti, disposti a tutto pur di ottenerli. La caccia è aperta, ma questa volta non agli squali. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

A great Castellari with Franco Nero as a retired shark hunter! The soundtrack is A+ (another great tube from Guido and Maurizio De Angelis). Also, Take a look at Castellari, in a cameo, punching Nero in slow-motion near the end of the Movie! A must see for Nero and Castellari fans.
