Movie Summary

Betty Thomas (I)

A top-secret prototype of an invisible stealth aircraft has been stolen by the notorious arms dealer, Arnold Gunders. CIA agent Alex Scott is in charge of getting it back from the bad guys. He enlists the help of a cocky, famous heavyweight boxing champ Kelly Robinson, who has a lot of friends in high places, to help him in the search for Gunders and the weapon. Sexy secret agent Rachel Wright, whose motives are rather unclear to Alex, also joins in the hunt as the trio travels to Budapest. In Hungary, a celebrated boxing match becomes a ruse for the group to infiltrate Gunders' compound during a party to attempt the retrieval of the prototype before Gunders can sell it.
