As the movie begins we meet John Kinsdale (Kennedy), his wife, and their three, young children, (don't get too attached to the wife and kids) as they're sitting down to breakfast. Seems John and his brood, all of whom are Americans currently residing in Naples, Italy, where John works as a computer specialist with NATO. As John leaves home and arrives at work, we learn his work includes programming computerized war games into a system known as `9-11' (which is kinda creepy if you think about it), in an effort to predict probable outcomes so that if a conflict ever does occur, Allied leaders will best know how to deploy their forces in such a way as to minimize losses. Anyway, as John returns home later that night he probably wishes he hadn't, as his entire family has been brutally murdered, execution style, by a group of unknown assailants (the authorities, at the present, are stumped). After dealing with various formalities (funeral arrangements, police inquires, etc.), John returns to work, much to the surprise of his co-workers, bent on discovering who's responsible for the massacre.Read more ›
I had seen this movie when it first came out in 1975. I was 15 years old at the time and had gone to the theatre with my mom and dad.
I loved 'Death Wish' with Charles Bronson, and wanted to see another "bad guy' get his just desserts movie!! Well, I wasn't disappointed. This movie has it all: vengeance (and rightfully so), suspense, etc. George Kennedy was your 'everyday' kind of family man, until he finds entire family slain by terrorists. He then goes off the deep end, and who wouldn't, and tracks them down using his computer skills, and ultimately decimates them all!! Basically, that is the movie in a nutshell. There may be a slower part here and there, but the movie overall moves quickly and deliberately, and the finale is great!!
If you like revenge/action movies, then this one is for you!!!!
The US DVD includes a decent interview with Kennedy, stills and poster gallery and TV spot, though the print quality - as with the original cinema release prints - is not particularly good.

This is one of the ORIGINAL movies that used computers to track terrorists. George Kennedy gives one of his best
performances of his career. Read more
Obviously a movie made in the 1970s. I saw it while serving on my first ship (probably while anchored out in Naples harbor). It was fun to see again. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Captain G
Another "one outnumbered man's revenge against the odds" movie... I'm entertained by George Kennedy's bulldozer slob characters in several movies. This one works, too.Published 15 months ago by Joe Sixpack
