Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Female martial-arts star Angela Mao is top-billed in When Taekwondo Strikes. The scene is Korea; the time is WW II. A group of resistance fighters, led by Mao, do their best to decimate the ranks of the occupying Japanese troops. Pity the poor Japanese: all they have to defend themselves is high-tech weaponry. Anne Winton co-stars in this above-the-norm actioner. Filmed in 1973, When Taekwondo Strikes earned an American release 10 years later -- and its first U.S. TV showing some five years after that.
