Director Terence Young helped make this actioner!
25 June 1999 | by Serpent-5See all my reviews

Veteran director Terence Young help directed this actioner that has many different agents and bad guys going after a chinese cook in Hong Kong who swallowed a microfilm (thinking it was candy) that contains blueprint and documents for a special secret plane that Henry Silva took photos of with a camera hidden in his left eyeball! The film looks very high budget for a Hong Kong film, and even has Roy Budd doing the music (some music was from 1973 THE STONE KILLER). The film never played on the big screen in U.S., but debut on CBS network on latenight. I saw the un-cut print from Japan recently and the film is still very good. Recommended to action fans.
