| Finest Action Movie in the world
I'll start by saying that artistically, this movie is complete and total trash. Aside from that it is one of the most entertaining and funniest movies I have ever seen. All the actors are hilariously inept, the action sequences are entirely nonsensical and poorly done, and there is much needless and often random nudity. From the first scene (where we learn the main character is a jazz musician, ex soldier, cat burglar extraordinaire) onward the fun doesn't let up. A few favorite scenes include the excruciatingly long sex scene between Fred Williamson and Sandy Cummings and, Fred Williamson demonstrating his amazing Karate Chop Action with a flying jump kick off the roof of a small shed. Fred Williamson's part is laughably macho (but what can you expect when he wrote, directed, and produced the movie,) and gives the movie almost infinite replay value.
