Doomed by a Low-Budget and Poor Direction
25 August 2017 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

After two scientists are killed and their formula--which can cause infertility for entire male populations--is stolen by a neo-nazi organization, two CIA agents by the names of "Huang Lung" (Bruce Le) and "Richard Cannon" (Richard Harrison) are sent to Spain to retrieve it from a woman named "Maria" (Nadiuska) who has it in her possession. Unfortunately, she manages to outwit them and so they then have to proceed to Hong Kong before she can give it to her superiors who intend to sell it on the black market. To further complicate things, the Vietnamese government also wants to get their hands on this formula and so they send a agents after it and the CIA agents as well. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this movie had the potential for being a solid "secret agent/martial arts film" in that it had a decent overall plot and some nice locations to back it up. It also had some fairly attractive actresses in May Hong (as the female Vietnamese agent), Sharon Shira (as "Anna") and the aforementioned Nadiuska to further brighten the scenery. Unfortunately, the overall production values were extremely low-budget, the scripts were laughably bad, and the scenes were much too disorganized and convoluted to merit any rating higher than what I have given. Below average.
