Fighting Mad [a.k.a. Death Force] (1978)


Tossed out to sea and left for dead by two friends, Doug Russell (James Inglehart) washes ashore on a remote island where two Japanese World War II soldiers reside. While the soldiers nurse Russell back to health, they teach him the way of the samurai. Meanwhile in Los Angeles, his former friends Morelli (Carmen Argenziano), and McGee (Leon Isaac Kennedy) wreak havoc in the city on rival gang members to control territory and drugs. Russell's wife Maria (Jayne Kennedy), mourns the death of her husband, after being notified by McGee that Doug died in an accident on the way home. After spending several months on the island, Russell returns home to seek revenge on the men that left him for dead and is terrorizing his wife and city.
