Two words,straight to video and it stinks big time
20 June 2001 | by (Fredrikstad,Norway) – See all my reviews

To be honest i fell asleep watching this terrible movie,so I had to watch the rest of it the day after.And the day after it was even more boring. The story is used hundreds of times,it's about a fighter who seeks revenge for his dead brother and therefor have to fight his brother's killer. The only thing worth seeing in this movie is the fighting scene at the end when the main character fights the world champion Matthias Hues in a illegal fist fight. I have seen Matthias Hues in other movies and he is a great kickboxer so I guess that is why the fight was okay. To be honest the fight is actually quit cool,but not cool enough. I'll give this movie 2/10 and the only reason that it is not a 1/10 is because of Matthias Hues and the fight at the end.

So 2/10 is a good reason not to watch this movie.

KEEP AWAY!!!
