Norris vehicle as an undercover cop pitted against Chinese drug dealers and must contend with corrupt police
The movie talks about a tough police man(Chuck Norris)from San Francisco,he's double-crossed and a friend cop is murdered.He renounces as cop in the presence his chief(Richard Roundtree) and helper(Matt Clark).Later a journalist being eliminated by mysteriously killer ,a sadistic villain(Professor TanaKa).Her friend reporter(Maggie Cooper) -working in Television channel whose owner is an elegant tycoon(Christopher Lee)- hand over to Norris a tape with clues.The loner cop must protect her from threatening hoodlums. Perennial karate guy Norris along with Mako undergo a violent confrontation against the Chinese Mafia ,pitting against corrupts cops from police department and criminal gangs named triads.Norris saves the day in this thrilling and exciting movie.
The picture is plenty of action packed,tension,suspense and cheesy sub-plot to boot with wild stunts.There's a conflict -ridden love interest as well,Norris falls in love with a lovely journalist who must to save her.The movie displays a plethora of martial arts fights ,Norris cleans up the Chinese fighters by means of punch,kicks,bound and leaps with struggles certainly slick.It's violent, frenetic and hectic and not particularly literary but worthy entry in Kung-Fu genre,although runs out energy surprisingly early.Average Norris-thriller ,exciting and tense at times with fine work ,as always ,from Christopher Lee as a brilliant TV financier.Special appearance as hunk villain of Professor Tanaka with lots of visceral violence,he's a wrestler who possessed incredible strength ,he was arguably the successor to Hrold Sakata(famous Chinese nasty of Goldfinger)as the archetypal Asian henchman. The film belongs Norris'early period ,during the 80s as : ¨Code of silence,Delta Force,Silent rage,Octagon,Forced vengeance,Force of one¨ among others with successful box office in theaters and video-rentals.In the 90s and 2000s with exception of Walker Texas Ranger,the Norris star has gone down.Action addicts will give this one a passing grade ,all others need not apply.If you're a previous Norris fans,you'll like it but contains enough action and violence for enthusiastic of the Chop-Socky genre.the motion picture is professionally directed by Steve Carver who directed to Norris in Lone wolf McQuade¨,as well.
