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!

I would have to say that Sloane is probably the best movie I have ever seen. I saw this movie at blockbuster and I knew right away from the elaborate cover that this was the movie for my wife, 2 young children and I. We sat next to the fire with a clear view of the television in suspense for Sloane's crack the whip action. Between Sloane's one liners and non-stop action our family was glued to the television...literally. Let me just say we never returned it and our family uses so many lines from the movie that we say we have a secret language called "Sloanian" everyone loves it and wish they could speak. Once this movie catches on it is sure to be a cult phenomenon to the likes of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Please, do it for yourself, do whatever you can to buy or at least watch this spectacle of a movie.
