Highly enjoyable chop socky effort directed by Cirio Santiago in the Philippines and starring the gorgeous Jillian Kesner, who was a real life Karate champ as a young woman looking for the killers of her sister. She finds an illegal drug smuggling operation and a "ring of death" where fights to the finish are wagered on by gangsters.
This movie is NEVER boring and Darby Hinton as the man who loves Kesner is very good in his role. Jillian was one of the nicest people you would ever meet and she was married to Gary Graver, one of the worlds most notable cinematographers.
Kesner dies in 2007 from a staph infection. A huge loss. Her husband, Graver had died in 2006, Kesner was only 58.
This movie is part of the 2 disc set Lethal Ladies and is part of Shout Factory's Roger Corman Cult Classics collection. recommended!!
