Quentin Tarantino's idol Sonny Chiba literally tears bad guys apart in a graphic karate-palooza. Mercenary, master of martial arts Terry is hired by the Mafia to kidnap the daughter of a business magnate who has died. When the Mafia refuses to meet his price, they decide to kill him so he can't share their secret. Terry decides to offer his services to protect the young woman he was supposed to kidnap. A lot of ultra-violent martial-arts fighting action follows.
