Stereotypical martial arts movie.
8 January 2001 | by (Rock Hill, SC) – See all my reviews

Obviously made to cash in on Bruce Lee mania, this film is about what you would expect - lousy camera work, weak plot, questionable acting and decent fighting. The alliances between the different characters are difficult to figure out - it seems like everyone fights against and beside each other at least once. But not many who watch this will be looking for a good story. The fighting is the main attraction, and from that point of view this movie is mildly entertaining.
