Two words: Edward Albert
22 April 2003 | by (Lisbon, Portugal) – See all my reviews

The man who starred in the great "Butterflies are Free" and the not bad "Midway"; golden globe winner for the most promising newcomer in 1973, suddenly starts his way through the b-movie world.

In a similar way to what happened to names like Jan-Michael Vincent (after The Mechanic and Big Wednesday) and Timothy Bottoms (talented actor who starred in, for example, "The Last Picture Show" and "Johnny Got His Gun"), Edward Albert faded into anonymity after his first screen appearances and unfortunately (which his not happening to Mr. Bottoms) it seems very hard to recover the deserved statute of a good actor.

The screenplay is similar to many other movies, but specially the acting seems a bit better: names like the referred Edward Albert, George Rivero (Rio Lobo), Mike Connors (Gideon) and the real-life martial artist champion Mattias Hues are maybe the better thing in the whole movie.

With good fighting sequences and interesting moments, "Fistfighter" is a good title to watch instead of bad Norris or Seagal films.
