Trivia

According to director Terence H. Winkless, the original script had Don 'The Dragon' Wilson's character training by running up stairs of a temple. When he arrived in the Philippines to begin shooting no temple could be found. A live volcano was nearby so he changed the script to have the character training by running up a live volcano as it would make an interesting replacement for the temple. See more »

Don Wilson's best movie
28 April 2007 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

Bloodfist is one of Don Wilson's best movie and only movie.Don Wilson stars as Jake Raye who travels to Manila to find his brother's killer.The trail leads him to boxing club the red fists who every year holds a competition calls the Ta Chang.To find his brother's killer he must enter in the tournament himself,to find the killer.This is Don Wilson's best and only movie he ever made.Seven sequels made after the first Bloodfist and this is only the best movie.Because all Bloodfist's hold different story and Don Wilson play'different't characters except part 2.But Bloodfist 2 is worst movie than part 1.Ok Don play's the same character but it's no th the sequel with 1 it s like Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon and it s to short.The part 2 ruined the first Bloodfist.I did not see all Bloodfist's.But second Bloodfist it s no't good movie,i'did not see part 3,part 4 and part 5.But i' see part 6,7 and 8.For Bloodfist 6 i'said that the movie is too short i's so post to be 20 min.longer not short.Part 7 is good but it s different story and part 8 it's nothing to compeer with first for the part 2 and 3 i said it s copy with different character's in second its dead arena in third it's prison and in the fourth and fifth i don't know what it is,like in seven or eight.For other Wilson's movie i Say'd there the worst movie he made.Like in the Red sun Rising bad story.Lion strike it s also bad movie.I read for the ring of fire that vars the worst movie of Don Wilson he made because he did not fight in the movie,except in the end for 10 min.I'said the when you are Don Wilson 's fan watch this movie it's worded to see for other movies it's up to you tho dissed.I' won't know just why they had the same titles when they are different't story then the first movie.I' recommended that you buy the first movie on DVD and enjoyed.
