Jack Palance was Outstanding
2 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed this Jack Palance, (Rick Masters) film where he plays an adventurer who loves women, wine and song. Rick is approached by some island people who want Rick to help them smuggle off their Island a junk full of dangerous nitroglycerin. Nico Patrae, (Fernando Lames) owned this cargo and will not let the people remove this nitroglycerin unless they hand it over to him. These Hong Kong people have a salvage business and they rightfully now own this property. Rick decides to help these people and they all work together to figure out a way to move this nitroglycerin to market for sale at a very high price. Rich also has some very romantic scenes with a very beautiful and sexy gal named Tisa, a local town gal, (Alizia Gur)- There is plenty of action and a great film location in and around Hong Kong, Enjoy.
