Storyline

A mercenary-for-hire plans to assassinate several world leaders at a summit using a high powered laser beam that will bounce off a satellite unless Col. Steve Austin can infiltrate his base and stop the mastermind before he sets his plan into motion. Of course it involves a bit of a challenge: Steve has to be fired onto the villain's island lair inside a torpedo casing, climb a dangerous precipice, vault a 30-foot high electrified fence and break into a secure compound. And then, of course, there's all the villain's henchmen to defeat...not to mention his deviously beautiful accomplice who may not be all she claims to be. Written by R. Bernard Ment

Hunting Quail
21 May 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Steve Austin(Lee Majors) is given a most difficult assignment that requires extra training and preparation, as he must infiltrate a well protected and guarded island that is the hideout of a ruthless mercenary named Quail(played by Steve Forrest) who has a new laser weapon he plans to use to wipe out a summit meeting on behalf of enemy forces hoping to capitalize on the ensuing chaos. Steve does infiltrate the island but is still captured, but assistance comes in the unexpected form of Violette(played by Arlene Martel) whom he isn't sure he can trust, but really has no choice if he has any hope of success... OK escapist fare is a bit outlandish but still acceptable.
