Movie Summary

Director:
Michael D. Moore
Released:
1967
Rating:
PG-13
Kill a Dragon (1967) is a remake of the 1954 film Seven Samurai. It was also inspired by the 1960 remake of the same film, The Magnificent Seven. While the previous remake placed the story in a Wild West setting, Kill a Dragon transports it to the exotic yet modern atmosphere of 20th-century Hong Kong. Jack Palance stars as Rick Masters, an American mercenary who is hired by some poor Chinese peasants from a nearby island to protect them from the extortion tactics of crime lord Rico Patrai (Fernando Lamas). The peasants run a salvage business, and have recently retrieved a half-a-million dollars' worth of cargo that Patrai is trying to seize from them. The cargo is actually a shipment of nitroglycerin, and Rick and his gang of karate experts have the dangerous job of transporting the shipment to Hong Kong while dodging machine-gun fire from Patrai's goons. Alizia Gur adds a touch of spice to the movie as Tisa, a beautiful Chinese pool hustler whom Rick falls in love with.moreless
