Storyline

Kyle Martin returns as a silver star hero, but realizes running a one man farm is not profitable, and the bank wants to foreclose, despite returning as a hero. Then a gambler Johnny has a car accident near his farm, in which Kyle saves his life, in which Johnny offers him 1,5000 dollars, which still isn't enough to save the farm. Then when Johnny past-post on a horse race for over $50,000, angering local mobster Passini as he and his three henchmen kills Johnny's bodyguard and then blinds Johnny's eyes with acid to "make a example out of him", Johnny asks his girl Betty to ask Kyle to kill Prassini and his men one by one for $50,000, the money he needs to save his farm, which sets the path for revenge.

Extremely under rated film!
2 February 2018 | by dukesixSee all my reviews

Interesting how former Marines like myself loved this movie! I thoroughly enjoyed it, and thought that it applied to post World War II, or any other war in which disgruntled veterans have to deal with idiots, of so many that have absolutely no clue. There should be a re-make, seriously. I thought it was damn good!
