Description

A federal agent, Nick Allen (Billy Dee Williams) whose daughter dies of a heroin overdose is determined to destroy the drug ring that supplied her. He organizes a small independent task force of mercenaries to travel to France in order to kill the nine leaders of a Marseilles drug syndicate. The motley crew of angry American citizens includes construction worker, Mike Willmer (Richard Pryor); call-girl Sherry Nielson (Gwen Welles); rogue cop, Dutch Schiller (Warren J. Kemmerling); college professor Barry Strong (Paul Hampton) and the kindly old Jewish couple, Ida (Janet Brandt) and Herman (Sid Melton), who want to inflict Old Testament revenge upon the syndicate. Photographed by legendary cinematographer, John A. Alonzo (Chinatown) with a beautiful score by Lalo Schifrin (Dirty Harry). Directed by Sidney J. Furie (The Ipcress File).

"[T]he highlight cast-wise is Pryor...effortlessly stealing every scene with simply the disbelieving steadiness of his gaze..."
