Clement Moloch is a doctor but instead of using his skills to heal; he uses them to torture. He works for governments including the U.S. who wants insurgents dealt with. Now several of his victims want him dead and after several attempts fail. Holland, a retried killer for hire, is informed of the death of an old friend who was trying to kill Moloch. Holland initially stating that he is retired doesn't take the job. But he changes his mind. He asks for woman and a child to accompany him so that he could appear to be a family man. And the woman who goes with him is the wife of his friend, who brings her daughter along. When Holland arrives he notices that Moloch is heavily protected so he starts by taking out his people.

The original UK cinema version was cut by 52 secs by the British Board of Film Classification with a further 10 secs being cut from its UK video release. The electricity torture scene was very heavily edited and the film also suffered cuts from the opening fight in the bar. All BBFC cuts were restored in the 2007 Network DVD release though the print used was the American R-rated version. See more »

The person who wrote the previous comment about this movie is missing the entire point of this movie! Yes, this movie was basically made for the viewers to grow hate towards "El Doctor" and be really happy at the end when Charles Bronson wins and the village folks who the doctor has been torturing over the years come out, corner him and simply tear him apart.
Sure the movie is very graphic and the writers could have written a better script; but, the way the previous comment was written it leads me to believe the writer should stick to watching Disney or Pixar movies only! Guess what? The type of torture that is shown in the movie is VERY REAL and being from Central America myself I have heard the horror stories about real life sadistic bastards.
I see the movie in a different way, an educating way to let the rest of the world know what does REALLY go in my poor countries and although in real life there is no Hero like Charles Bronson's character, at least the movie allows us to escape and dream of these sadistic bastards getting what they truly deserve in the end.
