Instant Justice is a 1987 action-drama film starring Michael Paré, Charles Napier, Eddie Avoth and Tawny Kitaen. Pare plays the role of Scott Youngblood, a marine in Spain who seeks revenge for his sister's murder. The movie was written by Craig T. Rumar. The film was directed by Denis Amar.
Scott is an US Marine, who serves in the US embassy located in Japan. One day he gets message that his long unseen sister Kim, who works as a model in Spain, is in serious trouble; he asks for a dismissal from his outpost and travels Spain to help her. Unfortunately she's murdered before Scott's arrival. Local police are somewhat reluctant to take any action, so Scott starts investigation on his own.
After a couple of days of sniffing around, he meets with Kim's girlfriend, Virginia, who's pointing him towards drug business-related people who might be responsible for the crime. Fellow Marine Major Davis (played by Charles Napier), who serves in the Spanish embassy, is of great assistance to Scott as well, as he risks his own neck and steals some weapons from the embassy for him. At the end Scott finds the people responsible for his sister's death and serves them instant justice.
