Storyline

The hero of the film is a murderer. He is an ex cop who served eight years in prison for the murder of his wife's murderer. Upon release from prison, he decided to return to his hometown to escape from his past. En route to his ancestral home in Georgia, one of his friends gives him a gun that fires grenades, smoke bombs, steel balls, rockets, and several other types of projectiles. One day, while just looking through the scope of his gun for no apparent reason, he happens to spot a large buck. He follows the deer with the scope and is surprised when he witnesses a group of local boys poach the deer. The hero puts the gun under the floorboards of the porch, where it remains until very near the end of the movie. Upon investigating the poaching, he uncovers a horrifying poaching ring run by a man from Hong Kong who is paying the locals a couple of thousand dollars per deer and using bits of the animals for Oriental medicines. Our hero decides to clean up the ring. However, he runs into ... Written by <jeff@bora.dacom.co.kr>

Alternate Versions

Italian DVD release (which is full uncut but with Italian audio and subtitles ONLY!) has quite a few more intense and violent scenes than the Finnish videotape (English audio) that possibly are not censorship cuts but version differences. The rape scene and the beating of the cop in the woods is more intense. Also the "exploding arm" - and "the throatcut" - scenes are not present in the Finnish videotape. There's also some differences in some of the dialogue scenes, like the ending - in the Italian print Eastman and Sopkiw don't say anything to each other while in the english language print they change a few words.

Very good movie.
27 December 2006 | by mosurvn-1See all my reviews

saw this movie way back in 1987 when I was in Greece. I thought it was a great revenge action movie. Sopkiw did a neat job as Tiger Sharp. Quite surprising why he hasn't featured in any movies after that !! Change of profession ?? Sopkiw as Tiger Sharp returns from Jail after 8 years after killing his wife's murderer. He tries to lead a quiet life when he stumbles upon a group of deer poachers who kill deers for a Kingpin from Hongkong who use the kill to prepare oriental drugs. This kingpin turns out to be Sharp's friend. This anger's him more. To make things worse, his daughter is killed by the poachers and Sharp goes berserk and pulls out the gun from under the porch given to him by his friend and quenches his revenge by killing them all !! A great revenge stories. I am sure the Indians will love this movie.
