Considering the quality of the personnel involved, EYE OF THE TIGER should have been a solid action film boasting some good acting. Unfortunately, the script by Montgomery is an endless barrage of stale revenge-film cliches, and director Sarafian blithely ignores its faults by
concentrating entirely on the action scenes and ignoring the actors. Busey is a convict recently paroled after serving time for a set-up manslaughter charge. During his absence a motorcycle gang led by Smith has taken over the town. One night Busey fights off some bikers who've attacked a woman
and incurs the wrath of Smith. The problem with EYE OF THE TIGER is that one can never be certain what motivates any of these characters. If that isn't bad enough, there are plot holes big enough for Busey to drive his super-pickup through, but Sarafian's direction steamrolls over such minor
matters. Regrettably, the action scenes are not exciting enough to warrant overlooking these nagging details.
