Wow, what a collection coming from Shout! Factory. DVD Release Date: October 25, 2011
"Female karate champion Susanne Carter (Jillian Kesner) goes to the Philippines to look for her sister who has disappeared. She stumbles upon a drug cartel and a tournament of no-holds-barred fights to the death in the action-packed Firecracker. Directed by genre specialist Cirio H. Santiago (TNT Jackson) and costarring Vic Diaz (The Big Bird Cage) and Darby Hilton (Malibu Express)".
TNT Jackson (1974)
"They call me TNT, martial arts expert Diana Jackson (Jeanne Bell) announces upon her arrival in Hong Kong to look for her missing brother, heading into the city’s worst area, a no-man’s-land that is a haven for drug dealers, thieves and killers. TNT does not know that her brother has been brutally murdered by Charlie (Stan Shaw), an American who is bent on inching his way to the top of the city’s drug-smuggling trade. But he has no idea what he’s up against when he tangles with dynamite in TNT Jackson!"
Too Hot to Handle (1977)
"Contract killer Samantha Fox (Cheri Caffaro) accepts a mission to kill a group of gangsters in the Philippines, but problems arise when she falls for the Manila detective investigating the murders. Director Don Schain, who was married to Caffaro, directed her in several films prior to Too Hot To Handle, including Ginger, Girls Are For Loving and The Abductors".
I own Too Hot to Handle VHS tape and it´s a fantastic movie. Firecracker is from the early 80s and the big boys have told me that it´s almost a classic. Add TNT Jackson and you got package ready to explode. Can´t wait to get my hands on this!

I have seen all these, and they are trashy fun. The Cheri Caffaro Ginger films are especially amazing because they are dedicated to the director's wife, Cheri, kicking butt and looking good, amidst some seriously kinky damsel-in-distress stuff that decorum prevents me from mentioning here. I can't believe that these things got made in the 70s.
Kesner kicks a lot of butt and is good in Firecracker. Bell looks the part, but TNT Jackson, while fun, is the weakest film in the set.
