All-star (?) cast international action film.
3 March 2000 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Bruce Le (not Lee) teams up with Richard Harrison to solve an international crime that takes them in many different location filled with stock music (from major films), nudity, and fight sequence. This is another Dick Randall production that took Lee away from Hong Kong cinema to the heavy schlock cinema. Brad Harris plays one of the bad guy in an unremarkable role. Interesting seeing two former Hercules (Harrison/harris) in one film, and also fun seeing Italian gladiator actor Harris star opposite to Bruce Le. The plot is weak and action star Harrison comes off as a weak agent. The film was called something else, but when Gymkata entered the video arena, it was retitled to this title. Not recommended.
