I'm a real pushover once you get to know me

***SPOILERS*** Stacey Keach as the tough talking chain smoking and take no BS private detective Mike Hammer hammers away at a gang of drug smugglers that ends up with almost the entire cast never surviving the end of the movie. It all started with a friendly game of cards that was a camouflage for a major drug deal that Hammer's friend "Cowboy" Malcolm Dobbs, Tim McIntire, was a participant in. With the game interrupted by two masked men who fled the scene by parachute Hammer's good friend Capt. Pat Chambers, Don Stroud, is shot from behind by an unknown assailant as he came on the crime scene.

Chambers barley recovering from his injury is later indited in the robbery by the D.A's office in the fact that he was involved in the robbery by just being there and knowing about it in advance! Hammer for his part goes out on a limb in order to find the real person or persons behind the crime and as you would expect there's hell to pay on both sides of the law for the reminder of the movie. With enough killings to fill an entire weekend of shootings in cities like Chicago Washington D.C and L.A "More Then Murder" more then lives up to it's title. With a wild chase scene on foot and in the water by Hammer, who in the process lost his famed fedora, having it out with the person who's behind this drug deal gone wrong-and all the killings that followed-on of all places the New York Staten Island Ferry!

****SPOILERS****Great NYC on location street scenes as Hammer goes all out to crack this puzzling case for the police who seem totally helpless in doing it. Tough street wise and knowing his way around Hammer is more then motivated in getting things done here when his undercover FBI girlfriend Eve Warwick, Robyn Dougless, is gunned down by the mastermind of this complicated drug switch that initiated all the killings in the movie. After Hammer was winged, or shot, by Eve's killer he in return blast him straight off the walking plank of the ferry! And then calmly watches, without offering him any assistance, as he's hanging on by his fingertips for dear life falls to his death crashing into a car parked below with the now destroyed World Trade Towers, competing with Mike Hammer in the same frame, in the background. P.S We as well as Mike Hammer are introduced to the alluring and mysterious "Face", Donna Denton, who's to haunt him in all the remaining episodes of "The New Mike Hammer" Series.
