| Generic, yet entertaining, Crown International action cheese
An American secret agent called Scorpion is tasked with protecting a terrorist who is set to testify against his cohorts. The job goes wrong and Scorpion's childhood friend is killed in the process, he now has a personal agenda and hunts down the killers.

Scorpion is a typically low budgeted Crown International Pictures release. It's a martial arts action flick which is extremely generic. That said I did find it consistently entertaining so it gets pass marks from me. It does have a fairly non-descript leading man, who it seems wasn't really an actor to begin with and didn't go on to make any other films. Yet the film does have a sprinkling of other people you may recognise from other b-movies, most surprisingly to me was seeing John Lazar – who played the indescribable Z-Man in Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970) – appear in an utterly minor role late in the film. What a waste! Anyway, it was at least nice to see him pitch up in something else. Anyhow, for what it's worth the action in this one takes place in Spain and Hawaii, as well as mainland USA. There are quite a few fights and guns to ensure things remain interesting. All things considered, I thought this one was pretty good fun. Oh and I also thought the poignant 'shoving over the statue' scene was pretty funny.
