I saw that one in 1996-1997 but it seems to me that movie (definitely not a TV serie) was made earlier.
I have no clue about actors.
I remember that one scene in the end: the guy is in the helicopter, he is a passenger and he is in the handcuffs. He talks whit someone, then he rotates his wrists, the handcuffs opens and the guy jumps from the helicopter.
It was a color movie and I think it was a Japanese one.
p.s.: that scene has been making me mad really bad for a long time. That was my uncle who watched the movie back in the days but he couldn’t remember it. I really hope someone solve that one.
