Did You Know?


A few scenes have the feel of Writer & Director Andy Sidaris' style while he worked on ABC's Wide World of Sports and in particular the scenes where we're introduced to TK (The Dragster), TK's hang glider attack, and the chase scenes around the island. See more »


Drew Savano: It is far more vital to perfect the evolution of an act of determination than the actual moment of impact, as I like to call it.

Alternate Versions

There are two versions of this film. One version that was available on the MGM digital cable channel which only runs 90 Minutes and missing eleven minutes. The uncut version which was just released by Kino Lorber is the complete uncut version that restores alot of scenes including Ed Parker killing both of Mr. Lee's henchmen, and a scene revealing that The Cowboy was still alive after Mailei double crossed him and shot him amongst the few scenes that were restored from the cut version.

Andy Sidaris Keeps You Engaged On So Many Levels.
10 May 2020 | by mikecanmaybeeSee all my reviews

The movie is a lot of fun with plenty of over the top and almost comical death scenes combined with wonderful scenery of almost every variety. William Smith, as good guy assassin team leader Drew Savano, was very likable with his ability of conveying a natural charismatic leadership presence. A quiet confidence, if you will. As more or less the leading lady Barbara Leigh was also good as the hot Alexa who has a pretty weird scene with the creepy "Hermit" played well by Veteran Reggie Nalder. Barbara by this time no longer possesses the transcendent beauty that she enjoyed in the Junior Bonner days, but is still a foxy lady in this one. The rest of the cast and story is also terrific which ads up to a fine "B' movie for Mr. Sidaris.
