The producers originally wanted to cast Andre the Giant in the role played by Toru Tanaka because they felt Tanaka wasn't tall enough. They were eventually convinced that Tanaka would be more believable, as well as cheaper and with less scheduling conflicts, so they agreed to cast him. In order to overcome his height "disadvantage" they had him wear the platform shoes to make him appear taller than his 6'2 frame. See more »

Nothing special , but enjoyable early Chuck Morris movie
Most of early Chuck Norris movies are terribly cheap and simply unwatchable. This is thankfully an exception. This is definitely not a groundbreaking action movie , but enjoyable enough to spend a pleasant movie night.
The plot is rather formulaic , but the director Steve Carver (who later made with Norris the successful "Lone wolf McQuade") keeps the movie at good pace. The action scenes are nicely done with cool touches of slow motion. The music is really good. The whole movie feels more like a 70's movie , but that's not a bad thing.
This is one of Norris best performances. Here he shows a little bit more emotion than his usual stone face. He also looks very young with his blonde hair and clean shaved baby face. Richard Roundtree ("Shaft") is solid as Capt. Stevens and so is Mako as Norris mentor. He's not a bad comic relief too. Professor Toru Tanaka ("Goldfinger") is enjoyable as always as the intimidating foe. I only don't understand his weird shoes. The only bad performance comes from the wooden Maggie Cooper as the love interest. Christopher Lee ("Dracula") makes a nice performance, too bad he doesn't have too much screen time.
Decent action , decent acting and decent direction make this one a harmless time killer. Action junkies should be satisfied. It is what it is. I had an OK time and this is certainly one of Norris better movies. I give it 5/10.
