Is that what Zagon is; one of your basement boys?
Zagon's a rancher. 4000 acres in Costa Rica. Beautiful place.
Beautiful place, huh? And tell me, was that bought with opium money from the triangle?
And a ton of coke a week from other places.
Which he funnels here through Salvano, The Company getting it's cut, of course.
Yeah. So war is still the greatest business, huh Nelson? I mean, these guys have financed & started every war we've ever fought. But you know something, nobody ...

I saw this movie once it came out in the 80's and recently I got on DVD for fun and I realized it was a terrific movie. Nico Toscani has done it all, Martial Arts, CIA, has a mafia family and now is happily married, has a new born son and has a partner he can talk naughty to in front of his wife. Whilst getting his young cousin out of a bar her boyfriend immediately tells Nico of a deal about to take place. Nico follows up on that tip and finally finds out that the guy he arrests is involved with the FBI. He gets a warning to back off from their turf, but Nico is consistent when the local priest is murdered. Seems the local priest wasn't supposed to be killed but another priest who was hiding in the basement was to die due to information confessed to him from someone. Nico discovers that a group of assassins are in town. When his family is put in danger he goes on a rampage.
Note: Did anyone notice the scene where Nico is a fighting a bunch of guys in an Indian's guys store and one minute he is wearing leather boots and when he jumps out of the window he is wearing a black pair of sneakers? Oh and if I am not wrong Someone said Steve instead of Nico when the FBI starts searching Nico's house. A great movie to watch!
