Former Playboy Playmate Jeanne Bell stars as TNT Jackson, a kung fu expert who journeys to Hong Kong in order to avenge the death of her brother. The trail leads her to a nightclub in a seedy part of the city, where she makes friends with the owner in order to get closer to the man she believes was responsible.

The first thing you'll notice about this film is the picture quality, every frame of this picture looks almost as threadbare as the script must have looked at the time (the script being used in so many other films), so if you were looking for some ultra crisp, highly defined, organically grown fair trade, super interactive 3D starbucks multimedia, ipod compatible streaming "content", for your HD-LCD-WIMAX-ASAP-Stabucks-BLURAY-TV you may be more than a little disappointed. The second thing you'll notice is the sound, attaching planks of wood to your speakers would produce a similar effect. Now on to the film itself, the plot just about makes sort-of sense, it's edited in a way that seems as if you are watching an hour-long trailer. The "martial arts" in this movie a very amusing, the fight scenes are all sped-up for some reason, producing a slapstick effect, relieving any minuscule traces of drama. Dispite all of it's many shortcomings, this film does entertain, is very (unintentionally) funny and is well worth the price.

The running time listed on this Brentwood Communications release says 90 minutes, but the film runs just over 70 minutes. Unfortunately, the print used by Brentwood is not good . . . numerous scratches and artifacts are found throughout the film and the soundtrack is poorly recorded; you'll have to crank your volume up to hear the dialog. Brentwood also includes a few extras on their budget DVDs, including a "Casper, the Friendly Ghost" cartoon, an interactive movie trivia game, a dictionary of DVD terms, 6 chapter stops for the film, and a special internet connection for those viewers having a DVD-ROM equipped on their computer. Not a bad deal for five bucks.
The film is an excuse to show Bell doing karate on mobsters and tons of Asian extras. Probably half the running time is taken up with karate scenes of dubious quality. Bell is a pretty woman, but not exceptionally talented in martial arts. The fight scenes are amusingly choreographed and lack a certain amount of credibility. OK, who am I fooling? They are laughable and ridiculous, but they provide the other half of the entertainment value the film yields.
The story is straightforward and predictable, the acting is sub par (Shaw does well with questionable material), and the quality of the DVD recording is not very good, as it has a lot of surface flaws and poor color balance. Still, the fight scenes are entertaining (albeit not in the intended way), and the film does have a satisfying (if predictable) conclusion after Bell and Shaw engage in fisticuffs for an exceedingly long time. It's only 72 minutes long, so there's not enough time to get too bored (although the native dancing toward the end started to approach the boredom threshold), making it a brainless, fun flashback to the 1970's.
I don't mind the minimal extras, and a title like this doesn't deserve restoration and all that jazz. But the transfer of the film is so below par, I'd say skip the film unless you really need to spend $... that bad.
