Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This wartime action/adventure movie is unusual in having Reagan's invasion of the Caribbean country of Grenada as its focal point. South African action star James Ryan plays Blaine Striker, a resourceful race-car driver who has come to the island nation to visit his medical student brother Ryan (Liam Cundill). Meanwhile, the country is taken over by the nefarious Marxist General Turner (Oliver Reed), who takes Ryan and the other students (many of them very attractive women) hostage. With the help of CIA man Miller (Cameron Mitchell), a rescue is effected and an alliance is formed with local rebels, led by Wally Arn (Henry Cele).
