Before her search is over, she'll find herself making love to Charlie, trading insults with Elaine, and fighting criminals while nude and in the dark. Just call her T.N.T. Written by J. Spurlin

Kind of Cheap and Shoddy
4 October 2014 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

After a young black man is killed in a drug transaction in Hong Kong a young black woman named "TNT Jackson" (Jeannie Bell) arrives at the airport and asks the taxi driver to take her to the "Yellow District" of the city. The taxi driver refuses because he believes it is too dangerous. So she then asks to be taken as close to that area as possible and decides to walk the rest of the way. In no time she is attacked by several thugs but manages to fight them off with her skill at martial arts. Eventually she arrives at her destination and meets a man named "Joe" (Chiquito) who takes her under his wing and gives her guidance and information that she needs in order to survive in the strange world she has just entered. Now, rather than divulge too much of this movie and risk spoiling it for those who haven't seen it I will just say that this is both a "blaxploitation" film and a "martial arts" film rolled into one. Unfortunately, it doesn't honestly rank up there in either category because of the less-than-stellar acting and the rather low-grade fight scenes. Still, Pat Anderson (as "Elaine"), Imelda Ilanan (as "Joe's Assistant") and the aforementioned Jeannie Bell were all somewhat attractive and I suppose that should count for something. But even so the movie still seemed kind of cheap and shoddy. Below average.
