Low-budget action specialist Cirio H. Santiago directed this Philippine-set martial arts film, which bears more than a passing resemblance to his earlier T.N.T. Jackson and his later Angelfist.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This 'TNT Jackson' remake is more enjoyable than its predecessor, thanks to an outrageous sequence in which Kesner progressively loses her clothing during a battle with a pair of thugs, scored to a jazz-rock Filipino rip-off of the B-52's' 'Planet Clare.'"
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
