Trivia

The head of the company originally set to distribute the film was found murdered shortly before it was to go into international release. It received spotty distribution because the rights were tied up in legal wrangling over the victim's estate for several years. See more »

Girdler's last film is not bad.
23 April 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Interesting actioner from the late director of GRIZZLY, MANITOU and DAY OF THE ANIMALS. This features Leslie Nielsen as a Kung-fu expert/secret agent who wants out, but in his line of work, there is only one way out...DEATH. Nielsen goes on a run, his friend and fellow agent Gary Lockwood is hot on his trail. Nielsen battle local bad guy Vic Diaz as a second plotline. I don't know if this film got any theatrical booking, for it played a lot on CBS late night. The video print is dirty and looks like it was from a 16mm print. The film is not bad, and Nielsen does a real good job in the film. It's not recommended for most fans of Nielsen today will view this film as a comedy.
