An action thriller with such luminaries as Steve Railsback, Maud Adams, Fred Williamson, David Dukes, Lisa Eilbacher and Lance Henrikson, Deadly Intent has the feel of an updated hard boiled mystery. Deep in the South American jungle two men fight over an ancient statue; both archaeologists are part of a museum team set with the task of exploring the forbidding jungle. Tempted by riches and greed, one man, Raymond (Henrikson), makes it out of the jungle with the prize, a priceless gem, a diamond of unfathomable wealth. Returning to the United States Raymond is beset with danger from all sides. Is it the slighted museum owner (Adams) or some unknown group out to steal the diamond back for their own gains? Following a road accident Raymond is killed but the jewel is nowhere to be found; knowing his danger he has hidden it away from his assailants. Next, their murderous intentions turn to his innocent wife (Eilbacher); does she have the gem or is she as innocent as she seems?
