Set in German-occupied Norway, this is based on the efforts of the Norwegian resistance to sabotage German development of the atomic bomb. Resistance fighter Knut Straud enlists the reluctant physicist Rolf Pedersen in an effort to destroy the German heavy water production plant in rural Telemark. British commandos dispatched to destroy the plant are killed when their glider crashes. A resistance raid ends in the partial destruction of the heavy water but the Germans resume production quickly. Pedersen recommends that the Allies bomb the plant. Straud opposes him to prevent civilian deaths. The air raid takes place, but it fails to destroy the heavy water. The remaining heavy water is loaded onto a ferry for Germany, and the resistance attempt to blow it up. Pedersen boards the ferry to try and minimize civilian deaths. The film closes with resistance members rescuing passengers as the ferry sinks.

Lewis Collins is back to leading mercenaries on the move in Southeast Asia. This time the cast is unusually good including Lee Van Cleef, Brett Halsey (Cop Game), Romano Puppo (Robowar), Mike Monty (Raiders of Atlantis), Bobby Rhodes (The Great Alligator), etc. Anyway, Van Cleef has Collins go on some random mission to locate a disc with all sorts of valuable crazy intelligence data on it. It just happens that Donald Pleasence, a random government official, hires another mercenary-for-hire Manfred Lehman to tag along and make sure the data ends up in the right hands. Van Cleef isn't taking any chances, and since he is crooked and murders Collins's other bosses quickly, he places Romano Puppo in the group as well to make sure the operation runs smoothly. Collins may not be too expressive but at least he seems to figure out quickly who's out to get him, so the mission continues with lots of double-crosses, twists and turns, and of course lots of explosions!
