Director Riccardo Freda does not take this uninspired, turgid spy film very far in its story about a federal agent (Edmund Purdom) and his efforts at blasting apart an international drug cartel. In one of the more unlikely turns of a plotline, the agent falls in love with the daughter of the cartel's head honcho. Needless to say, he is not expecting his future father-in-law to give his blessings at any possible nuptials. Instead, the action pits the agent against his arch-enemy as circumstances plod along (unless racing through an action scene in speeded-up time) to a final and deadly confrontation.
