This is the first movie in a series of 4,and I must say that this is the best of them.
The movie is about us national karate team who goes to the world championship to compete. The movie show how all the different personalities on the U.S team help each other and train to fight their greatest opponents,Korea.And they get to learn the saying 'A Team is Not a Team if You Don't Give a Damn About Each Other' Koreas team is amazing and show some great fighting techniques.
You must not think of this as a Karate Kid movie or anything like that,because this is a movie about serious people who compete in one of the hardest tournaments in the world. The fighting scenes in this movie is great filmed and choreographed. In the leading role you will fin Eric Roberts as one of the fighters on the U.S team.
This is one of the greatest fighting movies in the 80s and maybe the 90s.
So if you like action and karate movies,then this is a must.
