ALTERNATE TITLE: The Retaliator
23 February 2018 | by transgenic-21119See all my reviews

Just a note for convenience that this movie is alternately titled, "The Retaliator" on several online databases...just apparently not IMDB. Nor did it show up under searches on "retaliator" on IMDB as of the date of this "review".
