The story opens with Richard Thursby's murder and the abduction of his wife, Janice. Former cop and martial arts expert, Philip Sloane, is retained by family and flies to Manila in search of clues. He's joined by an old friend, Pete Saimi, and Thursby's sister, Cynthia in an adveture which includes a worldwide religious cult, Chinese overlord, a brothel and cave-dwelling cannibal pygmies. Must be seen to be believed! Written by

Action behind the camera rivalled the action in front: a guerilla army was shooting at Americans, passports were confiscated by military dictator's wife, an actress attempted to leave country with screenwriter in tryst during last week of shoot and had her passport revoked by the Americans who kidnap her at Manila airport and forced her back to the set, sabotage, the Lone Ranger (from the original radio series) saved the film, the original director of the film escaped the producer's wrath and fled to South Africa, crew members critically sunburnt, weapons and drugs allegedly smuggled across international borders and crew members supporting and meeting with key figures in a forthcoming political revolution!

In the Philippines, a gang kills Richie Thursby and kidnaps his wife Janice. Her father hires ex-cop Philip Sloane (Robert Resnick) to go to Manila to rescue her. Richie's sister Cynthia hounds him but he doesn't want her help. Two men come to rape Cynthia and Sloane comes to the rescue. They go off in search of Janice with the help of an old friend Pete Saimi. Richie had stolen money from a gangster who is now holding Janice.
First of all, this is badly shot. The acting is bad, the directing is horrendous, the dialog is weak and the actors are bland. Chuck Norris is a Shakespearian Oscar winning actor compared to Robert Resnick. The karate chopping fights are kind of fun with some passable stunts. There are B-movie car chases and a big explosion. The local shoots are exotic. However the movie is a boring mess. The movie has a long boring scene in the brothel and really creepy with a young girl he knew from before. "You've grown... and so have I." It's pedo-tastic.
This is a run-of-the-mill bad B-movie for over an hour and then it goes over the edge. They find out that the gangster is the Chinese leader of a religious cult. Sloane turns into Rambo but poorly done. In the cave, they're attacked by cannibalistic pygmies. It's about there that the 1/10 is truly earned.
