To marry his fiancee Sybil Danning & become a farmer like his stepfather to be Trevor Howard, James Faulkner quits his job in the South African police force, not without warning his boss Christopher Lee that there might be an uprising among the black natives though, led by a certain Albino (Horst Frank). But it is no sooner than he is celebrating his leave from the force that these blacks, led by the Albino, burn down his farm & rape & kill his wife to be. Driven by a thirst for revenge, Faulkner - accompanied by his loyal black servant Sam Williams - sets out to track down & kill the Albino & his gang, & it is up to police chief Christopher Lee to stop him, a plan seriously marred by his men - all loyal to their old comrade Faulkner - deserting him. But Lee is soon replaced by commander Erik Schumann, who is trying to track down Faulkner with a bataillon of soldiers. Faulkner, now having to fight a war on 2 fronts, still manages to get to the Albino & kill him before being shot by the soldiers, actually giving up his life after having accomplished his mission.

 

This trash version of a whites-vs-reds-vendetta-Western transposed to South Africa (in more than one way) is - to be polite - politically questionable at best, & not only by today's standards. The naivety which puts the good white opressors against the evil black natives is actually quite bewildering, not made any better by some blacks among the whites' ranks, all in subservient positions, calling their white masters mambo. These political views are of course not at all counterbalanced by the other message of the film - that it is by all means ok to put personal vendetta over law-&-order - the movie is not only about James Faulkner's road to vengeance, but also deals with the great sympathy & respect he earns for it from his colleagues, even his boss Christopher Lee, while the soldiers after him & their commander Erik Schumann are treated with misregard. Some kind of movie that is !

Within the context of these messages, it is rather surprising how many name-actors did actually appear in the film - though it must be added that both Trevor Howard's & Christopher Lee's career were definitely going downhill, while Sascha Hehn, then mainly an actor in German erotica like Schulmädchen Report 6 or the Hausfrauen Report/Give 'em an Inch-movies, was still years away from receiving stardom in the German speaking countries with his smash-hit-kitsch-tv-series Das Traumschiff & Die Schwarzwaldklinik, & later b-movie-queen Sybil Danning was back then still a starlet on the rise, and at that point of her career she couldn't be too awfully picky about what to act in.
