“White Fire” (1985)


By Jerome Reuter

If bad movies are an art form, consider this the Mona Lisa. White Fire, an exploitation film released in 1985, is exactly that. There’s no other way to say it, this is the ‘Holy Grail’ of B-movies. It stars the late Robert Ginty (The Exterminator) and Fred Williamson. (Bronx Warriors, Black Caesar) Two familiar faces to any fan of the Exploitation sub genre.

White Fire is a literal smorgasbord of clichés. It’s pretty much everything you’d expect from a mid 80’s exploitation film. Like most films of this nature, the plot isn’t something you’re going to pay attention to. This one is no exception, although it’s one of the more entertaining ones you’ll watch.

The story is about a diamond, simply known as the white fire. A race is on to obtain this precious gem. That’s the story for the most past. Our heroes in this onslaught of testosterone laden action flick are a brother and sister jewel thief team. Bo and Ingrid, who constantly do battle with others who want the diamond for themselves. I mentioned earlier this had quite an impressive number of clichés. If you enjoy violence, action, nudity, and things you would NEVER say to your sister…this ones definitely for you.

Just to give you a hint of what to expect, below you’ll find something useful. This a brief taste of some of the over the top action you’ll find. Chainsaws, harpoons, and Ginty; oh my!

I really don’t want to give too much of this one away. It’s a precious gem, like the white fire itself. It’s non stop entertainment, and always worth a watch.
