A man bent on delivering his own brand of justice isn't sure who his friends and enemies really are in this thriller based on a novel by Harold Robbins. Ty Kinnick (Richard Grieco) is a United States Naval officer stationed in Hong Kong, whose good friend, J.J. Kemp (Will Foster Stewart), has fallen in with a dangerous crowd. Ty finds out just how deep J.J. has gotten in with the criminal element when J.J. uses Ty as a fall guy for a scam that leads to murder and the theft of a fortune in stolen cocaine. Ty finds himself serving a long term in a barbaric prison, but when control of Hong Kong is handed back to the Chinese, Ty is one of a number of prisoners released early as a goodwill gesture. Ty cut off contact with his wife, Rachel (Athena Massey), when he became convinced she was in cahoots with J.J., but when he returns home to California, Rachel finds Ty and tells him J.J. is still after him, and will kill him as soon as he can find him. Ty is eager to get revenge against his former friend, and takes Rachel up on her suggestion that he fly to the Philippines and murder J.J. Little does Ty know that he's fallen into another trap, but this time, Inez (Joyce Jimenez), a hooker working for J.J., is able to tip Ty off about what lies in wait for him, and together they develop a scheme to take down J.J. once and for all.

Audience Reviews for Vital Parts
* (out of four)
Richard Grieco is unhappy. He has been rotting in a Hong Kong prison for the last five years. Now he's out and he wants a little revenge on those who double-crossed him. He's not even sure he can trust his best friend, nor is girlfriend.
Dumb thriller with laughable dialogue.
