Move over McGarrett and Magnum; the toughest cop in Hawaii is now Silk Sleighton (Cec Verrell). Her investigation of a heroin-smuggling ring leads her into a more insidious racket, one in which people who die outside hospitals have their identities bought from their relatives so that Asian

gangsters can enter the U.S. When the police get too close to cracking the ring, the criminals decide to murder their latest ID recipient to cover their tracks; but things go sour and Silk ends up as a hostage. More like a TV cop show than a shot-in-the-Philippines exploitation title, SILK has

little going for it. The plot is unfathomable, the acting lousy, and the action dull. On the other hand, Verrell is an interesting heroine, and it is unusual to find a woman the center of an action film like this. If only there were some worthwhile action in which she could participate.
