Storyline

Antonio's parents were murdered when he was a child. As an adult, he is transformed into a relentless bounty hunter, code-named "Mandrill," with the sole aim of finding the murderer and avenging his parents. Mandrill's only weakness has always been women, so he asks his uncle, a "Don Juan" expert, to instruct him in the arts of seduction. When Mandrill is hired to capture a powerful Mafioso casino owner, he soon discovers that this is the man who he has searched for all these years. But upon meeting Dominique, the beautiful daughter of the casino owner, begins an impossible romance, which can be the only obstacle to his revenge. Written by Anonymous

A cheesy and campy but entertaining Latino James Bond/70's Kung Fu type movie. Worth watching. Great ending. I say B
26 February 2012 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"Revenge is a vicious circle, once you start you can't stop." After Antonio's (Zaror) parents are killed when he was young he turns into a ruthless bounty hunter named Mandrill. He is obsessed with finding his parent's killer and when he finally does he also meets Dominique, who could be his downfall. Going in I was expecting to see a Latino James Bond type movie. What I got was a Latino James Bond type movie that is also a 70's Kung-Fu type thing. The fighting was a little cheesy and the music and editing were very much like a 70's TV show. All that said, I was very entertained throughout the entire movie and I recommend this. The ending is great and the last scene leaves you wondering...which is rare for this type of movie. Overall, much better then anticipated and worth a watch. I give it a B.
