Larry Chin (Alan Tang) has come from Hong Kong to California to find his missing brother - but almost at arrival he is apprehended by corrupt detective Burke (Aldo Ray) and chained to hulky black Stud (Timothy Brown). The two manage to escape the cops though, lose their handcuffs, and make it to Los Angeles, where Larry suspects his brother to be and Burke hooks up with his gangster friend Smiling Man (Don Oliver), who is recently at war with some mysterious drug kingpin (James Hong) - who incidently has detective Burke on his payroll.

Larry finds out that the disappearance of his brother, too has to do with same drug kingpin, and he and Stud pay Burke a visit and force the hideout of the man out of him. Ultimately, Stud and Smiling Man's men take out the kingpin's large army of bodyguards while Larry takes care of the kingpin himself - who turns out to be nobody else but his own brother, whom Larry has been looking for to have his revenge, because his good brother killed his wife (Margo Hope) in a rape attempt ... and in the end, the villain really drives his car over some cliffs ...

Carol Speed and Clare Nono provide interests for Stud and Larry, respectively, while lovely Susan McIver, as detective Burke's way too young wife, is mainly in this film to have a nude scene.

 


With Dynamite Brothers, Al Adamson tried to jump onto the martial arts- and the blaxploitation bandwagon at the same time, with only moderate success. On one hand, the film looks better produced than most of Adamson's earlier movies, and he even took it upon himself to hire Lam Ching-Ying, a respected stunt coordinator (and actor) from Hong Kong, on the other hand though, most of the action sequences are lazily executed, the martial arts fights suffer from too many stuntmen not trained in (cinematic) martial arts, and in many scenes one can't but realize that the timing is seriuosly off. So whoever thinks that with Dynamite Brothers Al Adamson does to blaxploitation and martial arts what he has previously done to the horror and biker genres will be disappointed to find out this is nothing more than a mediocre action flick. Pity, actually.
