Avenging Force reverses ‘80s action-movie trends by pitting good-guy liberals against evil right-wingers. The American Ninja team of Michael Dudikoff and Steve James (the latter cast as your typical black senatorial-candidate-cum-kung-fu-ace) battle sinister Pentangle fanatics who, under the sicko supervision of crazed corporate head John P. (“Hitler was rightt!”) Ryan, blow up federal agents, waste hordes of innocent tourists in a Mardi Gras massacre, and even gun down little kids in their ongoing efforts to wipe “yellow-bellied liberals” off the face of the nation.

The script, penned by costar Booth – who performed the same dual functions for Sho Kosugi’s energetic Pray for Death – makes more noise than sense, but action auteur Firstenberg keeps things moving at a succifiently swift pace.” – The Phantom / The Phantom’s Ultimate Video Guide

”Fast action, some cheesy buddy stuff and a simple plot which is just a vehicle for that action”
– Andy Webb / The Movie Scene
