This is one heck of a fighting movie!Rutger Hauer is really good in the film and I feel that he could have made a ton more fighting films just like this!Randall 'Tex' Cobb was awesome as the bad guy!There are a ton of villains in this movie and in My opinion this is one of the best movies were a fighting hero beats up and/or kills every bad guy in the movie!Terry O'Quinn,Noble Willingham,Meg Foster,Rick Overton,Charles Cooper,Shô Kosugi,Jay Pennison,and Tiger Chung Lee were good!In My opinion this is a classic fighting and thrilling action flick that should satisfy even Steven Seagal and Jean-Claude Van Damme die hard fans!Very highly recommended!
