The film begins with a James-Bond-like teaser opening before the story begins. The plot involves P.I. Hammer discovering that a friend, Jack Williams, a one-armed detective, has been murdered and he begins investigating in an attempt to find out what happened. It turns out that there is a serial rapist involved as well as a sex therapy clinic headed up by sexy Dr. Charlotte Bennett (Carrera). The plot also contains elements not in the novel, such as government conspiracies and mind-control techniques by the CIA and the Mafia.
"Along the way there are spectacular chases and ingenious gore, including a water bed that oozes blood. It all ends with Hammer storming a booby-trapped hideaway, alone and without a gun, then slithering through a last little fillip of bloody romance. I, the Jury only aims to entertain. And who cares, with Mr. Assante around?"
