Killpoint is a standard violent action flick from the 80's. It's about a criminal gang who steal weaponry from the National Armoury and then sell it on to various hoods, while still finding time themselves to go around annihilating a variety of unfortunate people. A Chinese cop is put on the case to track them down.
This is an entertaining actioner which is somewhat rough around the edges it has to be said. It's poorly edited throughout in a manner that often doesn't make it too clear what is happening in certain scenes. But it has enough bloody violence and martial art fighting to ensure it's never boring. B movie stalwart Cameron Mitchell plays the gang lord who is combines his crime boss role with a penchant for sadistically killing women, while lovingly fawning over a small pet poodle. Richard Roundtree's name is prominent on the poster but he's hardly in it, it's more Leo Fong's movie - I hadn't even heard of him – and he puts in a stony-faced and decidedly uncharismatic performance while sporting an impressive pudding bowl haircut throughout. But best of all is Stack Pierce who plays the menacing character Nighthawk, who is Mitchell's sidekick/enforcer – he is a convincing bad ass and his performance is very committed.
On the whole this is quite middling fair though. Certainly entertaining enough but just don't expect too much.
