Johny Cain(Adam West) is an ex soldier-of-fortune who has retired to
run a restaurant.
When crime kingpin Tony Grimaldi is murdered, the Syndicate hires a
reluctant Cain to investigate Grimaldi's death, putting a contract on
Cain's life in 72 hours as added encouragement.
It turns out that Grimaldi was working with the CIA, and soon the
that agency wants Cain on their team instead.
The key to Grimaldi's death revolves around Revel Drue(Nancy Kwan),
the girl who worked for Grimaldi and clearly knows more about his
operation than she admits.
The problem for Cain is that Revel is also the ex-girlfriend that left
him and that he never really got over.
In this film produced shortly after the Batman series ended,
Adam West is a bit wooden but likeable in his role as the man who is
up to his neck in trouble, but who refuses to get pushed around.
Although the film suffers somewhat from a convoluted plot and from
limited production values, Nancy Kwan does have good screen time and
delivers an appealing performance.
