| Violent, gripping, excellent!
A pre Mortal Kombat Robin Shou appears in this as a particularly slimy swine who is abusing his position as a customs official to help smuggle a consignment of guns.

The plot becomes far more complex when the police become suspicious thus prompting Shou's character to put one of his employees in the frame. Matters take a further turn for the worse when the said employee is subsequently murdered and his brother and sister in law become unwittingly embroiled in the sinister affair.

A number of excellent action set pieces (mostly towards the end of the film), some edge of your seat suspense, some awesome martial arts action (from the always superb Moon Lee), great performances all around and even a shocking scene in which a character that would never, ever be sacrificed in a Western film is brutally murdered all make this absolutely electrifying stuff!

Fellow fans of IFD output will instantly delight to behold regular bad guys Philip Ko and Cornish born actor Mike Abbott in this to. The former playing the particularly nasty lead bad guy whilst the latter plays a complete psychopath who holds a sadistic predilection for holding little girls out of car windows whilst the car is being driven at break neck speeds!

This is simply riveting stuff and the sort of film Hollywood wouldn't and indeed, couldn't make in a million years!
