This martial arts actioner moves on the premise that the LA riots were the dirty work of the Irish Republican Army. Okay. Sure. The hero in this low-budget outing is British Special Air Service officer Shane who flies out to the LA ghettos to rescue the daughter of the British ambassador who also happens to be his ex-girl friend. A burly FBI agent helps him. Together they deal with rollerblading gangsters, bikers and other LA-style villains, all of whom are working for the IRA.
