Goofs

When Cavanaugh is stalking Ruger through the warehouse, he inserts a fresh magazine into his pistol after emptying it at Ruger, but he has to rack the slide to get a shell into the chamber. He should not have had to rack the slide, it should have been locked back after the last shell was fired from the now-empty magazine. In fact, he is never shown ejecting the magazine after emptying it. See more »

Sybil is okay, Wings really takes off
5 March 2011 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

A L.A. mayoral candidate is kidnapped by psycho Cavanaugh (Wings Hauser) and held for a $500,000 ransom. On the case is Ruger (Sybil Danning), a tough ex-cop turned bounty hunter who has a past with, of course, Cavanaugh. This was one of Danning's last vehicles before retiring in the late 80s and it is quite a change of pace for her. The story is credited to Danning ("Hey, let's make a movie where I am a bad ass.") and it is unlike any female action flick I can think of, mostly because her character is so tough and there is no focus on her sexuality. Ruger is the strong, silent type and only has maybe 7 lines in the entire film (IMDb trivia here says Danning only speaks 31 words throughout the picture). Director Worth Keeter was a product of Earl Owensby's North Carolina studio and handles all of the action well. The real highlight is, naturally, Wings Hauser in another trademark unhinged performance. Wings was doing lots of low budget cop hero roles around this time, so it is cool to see him slide back into the sleazy VICE SQUAD/Ramrod style. Quick supporting players include Robert Quarry, Branscombe Richmond, Bob Minor and Blackie Dammett.
