"Makes up in sheer kitchen-sink outrageousness what it lacks in gloss."
- Video Watchdog

"There's some jet pack action - and we're talking real jet pack action, not just Jim Kelly dangling from a crane." - Teleport City

"The sound department deserves an award, not just for the music track, which can only be described as a cross between James Bond and Charlie's Angels, but for their over enthusiastic punch effects." - Gabriella Trybalska, EyeForFilm.co.uk

When the daughter of the minister of Hong Kong is held hostage by Janicot, the "high priest of the occult", Robert Sand (Jim Kelly), an agent of D.R.A.G.O.N., cuts his vacation short to return to active duty. Toki, the minister's daughter, is also Robert's girlfriend. Janicot rules the underworld using his group of black magic cult members to run his prostitution and drug trafficking operations. He is holding Toki hostage to force the minister to stop his plans for adopting new drug laws that will hamper his business. Sand will use whatever means necessary to destroy the evil organization and return Toki to her father.

Karate champion Jim Kelly is best known to film audiences for his role as Williams in the Martial Arts cult classic, Enter the Dragon opposite film icon Bruce Lee. He went on to make a number of cult Martial Arts films including Black Belt Jones and Hot Potato and several action films with fellow action stars Jim Brown and Fred Williamson including One Down Two to Go, Three the Hard Way and Take a Hard Ride.
