Summary
  • Black Belt Jones: Pop Boyd owns a thriving karate school near downtown Los Angeles. Unfortunately, it sits on a piece of land the Mafia wants to acquire to develop its own civic center. When the mob's muscling of Pop leads to tragedy, Black Belt Jones steps forward to exact his individual brand of lighting-charged revenge.
  • Hot potato: After kidnapping the daughter of a U.S. Senator, a power hungry Oriental warlord thinks he's holding all the aces in his bid for political control in Thailand. But he's thinking wrong. Three gung-ho soldiers-of-fortune will soon convince him he's holding a hot potato.
  • Black Samson: Samson, a nightclub owner, fights against the drug dealer who wants to "own" the neighborhood.
