It’s time to Fireback!

Fireback

If you’re in the mood to watch a really bad sub-B-movie action film featuring a villain with a golden hand, then you’re in the right place! Fireback, starring Richard Harrison, was released in 1978, and, if you believe the trailer below, was full of rugged realism and dynamic action. Oh, and more than a few Bond-esque gadgets!

The best line in this movie surely has to be this gem, uttered by the police chief when describing Harrison’s character Jack Kaplan:

“He can turn an ordinary soft drink straw into a weapon.”
