He thinks it's his duty to personally go after Bomposa who's protected by an army of lawyers, money and political power. Often charged but never indicted for any offense, Bomposa continues his illegal activities. But out of the blue an opportunity presents itself when Bomposa's girlfriend, ditsy blonde Jackie Pruit, is called to testify before a Senate investigation committee.

Screen classic? I don't think so.
4 December 2015 | by (whakamaru) – See all my reviews

But that's what the DVD cover said. I watched it a year ago, yet couldn't remember a single thing about it! So watched it again, and didn't recall a single scene either!

There are hundreds of scenes of course, but every one is pointless and silly and sometimes ridiculous, ie, the guy with a machine gun lets off a magazine, but doesn't hit anyone, even at close range? The blow-gun scene is also simply not realistic. They might work in the Amazon, but to imply that one could fire a dart about 20 metres, up to the balcony with 100% accuracy is nonsense.

Is there a story here? Not much. Cop goes after chief hood, tries to retrieve the man's dolly-bird, a real air-head. At least her (Jill Ireland) acting is good, but the role is so awful I can't see why she accepted it. The rest of the cast simply don't matter.

My original rating was a 4, which is hard to justify now, but I'll let it stand.
