After her brother is killed in Hong Kong, martial arts-wise, tough-as-nails sisterTNT (Jeannie Bell) visits the city to do some investigating, and almost immediately after her arrival she makes the acquaintances of Elaine (Pat Anderson), a way too cute looking blonde to not have an agenda of her own, Joe (Chiquito), the too good for his own good owner of a martial arts school/nightclub/hotel who will eventually become her ally, and Charlie (Stan Shaw) a black gangster who is quite charming though, and whom TNT will eventually fall for - but Charlie is also the man who killed her brother (which she doesn't know yet).

However, somehow TNT makes it into Charlie's gang despite the fact that Charlie's boss Sid (Ken Metcalfe), his second-in-command Ming and his moll Elaine strongly oppose her. Then though a few drug shipments go horribly wrong, and everybody starts to suspect TNT, despite the fact that she knew very little about the shipments. Eventually, TNT and Joe decide to get their hands on Elaine because ... oh I don't know. And wouldn't you know it, Elaine doesn't only prove to be a versatile martial artist, she also proves to be a federal investigator - and she asks TNT for cooperation. TNT hates the pigs, but she has to realize at the time being Elaine is the best ally she could hope for - especially after Elaine supplies her with an alibi after another shipment goes wrong.

Eventually, TNT and Charlie have hot passionate sex, but after their night of love, TNT finds her brother's lighter with Charlie's things and immediately figures out the whole story - so from now on she's bent on revenge.

Ultimately, Sid and his gang are to meet with their heroin suppliers to deal with the problems of the botched up shipments, and since Elaine figures TNT might mess the whole thing up, she has her arrested - but then she herself is found out by her associates and neatly tied up and everything. Just a good thing that TNT has Joe to break her out of jail.

In the meantime the meeting starts, and now Charlie reveals himself to be behind all of the botched up deals, as he wants to take over the organisation from Sid ... when TNT bursts in, the police (which is actually after her) in tow, and while all the baddies are arrested, and Elaine is freed to deal with Sid her own way, TNT takes on, defeats and ultimately kills Charlie ...

 

Truth to be told, TNT Jackson is not the most intelligent, not the most subtle, and certianly not the best-made blaxploitation flick. In fact it's a silly and at times clumsy marriage of blaxploitation and martial arts cinema - with at best so-so martial arts -, garnered with a bit of nudity when you least expect it (like TNT's topless fighting scene). That all said though, TNT Jackson is totally enjoyable, be it for its many afros and unmistakable 70's fashion, for its very simple minded story, or for its supposed to be hip dialogue, or maybe just for its good pacing and agreeable running time (less than 75 minutes) that somehow makes the silly story acceptable. Of course, if you are looking for any sort of a serious film, don't even try this one, but if you love somewhat trashy 70's style blaxploitation, this one might as well be your thing ...
