The best thing about Norris is he never gets involved in all that romance stuff. Granted, there’s a pretty girl (Molly Hagan) whose life is at stake, but Norris never does more than hold her hand, lend his brawny chest for her to cry on, and – finally in a fit of passion – kiss her on the forehead.

Norris plays a police sergeant leading a raid on a drug den, who arrives a step behind another gang which gets away with all the dope and money, leaving a bloody mess behind. This sets off a gang war between forces led by properly menacing Henry Silva on one side and less prominent Mike Genovese on the other.
