Bolt is a renowed courier. He’s carrying millions of dollars from Hong Kong through Las vegas and further. But when he finds out there some fishy business, he’s on his own. Thank God he knows some karate!

Haha… Jefferson Bolt/James Bond, not a coincidence. This is an action filled low-to-mid budget action/blaxploitation/spy flick. And an entertaining one as well. Lots of one-liners and cheap humour. It might be to big for itself and a movie done by the dozens, but what the hell, it’s Fred Williamson in the leading role and the soundtrack is awesome!
