Dany Wagner (René Weller) is not onbly a boxing champ, he's also a
mighty good guy - so when he witnesses three guys attacking Sandra
Petersen (Bea Fiedler) and trying to inject her ehroin, he interferes, and
beats Sandra's attackers to a pulp. She tells Dany that the three guys are
part of a drug cartel who want to have their revenge on her because she
got a friend of hers off the stuff. Dany falls in love with Sandra
Karate teacher Andreas Arnold (Peter Althof) is also a
mighty good guy, so when he and Dany are in a bank that's about to be
robbed, they use their fighting techniques to put the would-be bankrobbers
out of commission.
Then though, Dany thinks that Adreas tries to steal
Sandra away from him, and before you know it, Andreas, who has long found
a girlfriend of his own (Jacqueline Elber) challenges Dany to a ringside
duel, boxing versus karate.
A few hours before the fight, Dany comes to
the conclusion that he and Andreas have to bust the drugring threatening
Sandra, and when they are actually in the ring fighting, the two of them
interrupt the fight to raid the drug ring's headquarters. Unfortunately,
the boss escapes ...
Soon enough, the baddies kidnap Dany and Andreas'
girlfriends, and the finale sees Dany and Andreas raid another hideout of
the drug ring, and this time they beat all the baddies to a pulp ...
1985, German lightweight boxing champion René Weller was at the height of
his career, so this film was made to cash in on his popularity - and in
case you wondered, this is not a good film, it was shot on the cheap,
based on an enormously silly, clichéd and ill-paced script, and Weller,
not exactly much of a thespian, was surrounded by a cast wooden as can be.
this film is also a must-see, if for all the wrong reasons: The 1980's
fashion and hairdos witnessed in this film are almost amazing in their
badness, the dialogues are amazing in their blandness and choice of words
(you have to understandGerman to really appreciate this though), and many
of the supporting actors just look awkward, as if they were cast in the
movie only because the production company owed someone a favour.
other words, this film is great ... just don't expect to like it!
