The Anthony Lee,
On the night of his Bachelor party, Joe has an Alien crash land in his back yard. With his fiancée becoming suspicious, can he get the Alien home before she finds out and cancels their upcoming wedding?
Jake Carver, lethal hunter of bad guys, tries to retrieve a microfilm containing information which would cause a Wall Street panic and an economic crisis for Western governments. Also seeking the microfilm are the villainous Adam and his henchman Frank Gordon. They plan to sell the microfilm to international terrorists or to governments hostile to the West. Jake perseveres in his efforts, despite being captured and tortured at one point, and despite his girlfriend Janet being kidnapped. Fist fights, explosions, and car chases ensue.Written by

A shirtless Robert Mitchum felt the sting of a lash across his bare back in the 1951 "His Kind of Woman." Now son Chris feels the sting of at least seven lashes across his bare back in this sloppy but lively made-in-Indonesia actioner. Thus the Mitchums qualify as one of filmdom's father-son victims-of-whipping combinations on the silver screen. (John Wayne was whipped in "The Conqueror" and son Ethan felt the lash in "Man Hunt." Errol Flynn was whipped in "Against All Flags" and son Sean received similar treatment in "Son of Captain Blood.") After his whipping, the shirtless Chris Mitchum then suffers electric shocks administered through a metal collar around his neck, but Chuck Norris underwent a similar torture in "Braddock: Missing in Action 3" some two years previously and Norris's torture scene was much superior. The rest of "American Hunter" is the usual mish-mash of action scenes which divert for the moment but which, like the lashes given to Chris Mitchum's back, don't leave any mark.
