One of Tanaka's underlings has stolen a rare statuette that he had planned to use as a peace offering between the local Yakusa and Chinese Tong. He hires two private investigators to exchange ransom money to recover the statuette, but the trade goes down bad and Clay Roth is killed. This angers Roth's brothers and father, all combat veterans, and they go after the people responsible. Written by

The song that Lauren Roth picks to play on the Jukebox after Jace Smith's "Emily" ends is "Kicks" composed by Ricky Phillips and the beautiful Tane McClure (who was then called by Tane Cain at the time. Because she was married to Jonathan Cain, the Keyboardist & Rhythm Guitarist of Journey back then), who was known for being the lead singer of the Indie Rock band, Tryanglz. See more »
Have you ever had your bones scraped, Mr. Roth?
I hear it is not a pleasant experience. First the needle pierces the skin, leaving only the smallest of marks. The bone is scraped away by the gentle movement of the needle until it reaches the marrow.

David Carradine and Lee Van Cleef star as father and son cops who join forces to avenge the murder of their sons/brothers at the hand of the triads who are after a priceless artifact that the hapless family has gotten their hands on. Brent Huff is the ill faded brother who keeps the family proud by being tortured and not caving in. Also is Lois Hamilton the wife of Carradine who also is kidnapped with her and Carradine's daughter in this plot heavy but generally enjoyable guilty pleasure. I haven't seen many movies from Fred Olen Ray but I figure this has to be one of his better features, this one is alone worth watching for the cast. Which include David Carradine, Lee Van Cleef, Mako(As the head mobster) and Michael"Hills Have Eyes" Berryman who are always fun to watch in anything. The movie is fairly predictable and Carradine is obviously a tad too old to jump in and kick ass but Armed Response gives of the unpretentious vibe that makes the response of of general acceptance from the audience.
