The plot is unsurprising, just a framework to hang on martial arts action. There is some emoting but it doesn't get in front of the action. Chad McQueen as the lead was bland and the great Cynthia Rothrock has a thankless role in support. David Carradine is an under rated actor and unfortunately played in a lot of films like this, roles he could sleep walk through. The film does have Philip Tan (with great London accent) as chief henchman though to add some spirit.
The fight scenes are OK. It is always pleasant to see La Rothrock kick some butt and she has a fierce fight with Tan near the end of the film that completely overshadows the simultaneous fight (they are all at an airfield, you know, one of those that never have any staff to see lots of men mown down by gunfire and call the police) between Carradine and McQueen. With a bit of imagination low budget martial art films can be really good. This is not one of them.
