As good as The Loot.
15 April 2006 | by (Memphis Tn) – See all my reviews

This movie is or isn't a sequel to The Loot (aka Bloody Tattoo), regardless of that the action in this one is just as good if not better. Just in small detail, one is out for revenge the other is out for money. Both men are skilled in martial arts, but are no match for the head man himself, at least not by themselves.

The action is great all of the way through, but the end fight is one to look forward to, if you have seen The Loot, then get ready for another great fight scene in this one as well, there is a light comedy side to the film, but doesn't get in the way of the action.

Again if you like good choreography, then by all means check out the Deadly Challenger, and if you can try and pick up The Loot, two great martial arts films......................with the same stars in them both. 9/10
