11 August 2006 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

Many martial art films come and go, and yet some are very interesting to watch. Don "The Dragon" Wilson packs a punch and strong kicks in "Bloodfist". I liked all the fight and power-breaking scene. kicking the bottles, smashing the bricks, and the matches, are accounted for will be memorable for all times. The quest is getting the fighter who killed his brother. And boy was he ever brutal! Billy Blanks did a short role as Black Rose. I liked the part where he smashed all the bricks with one chop, and I liked the part where he cartwheels every move. The problem was who won the match between Jake Raye(Wilson) and Rose. That was a bit of a downer. And the real surprise of the movie is where the guy he trained with is a dirty double-crosser, especially when he laced that mango with a narcotic. At least he was able to get the fighter and ripped off his earring was enough to really ridicule him. I would have done the same myself. A entertaining movie, and very articulating in the fighting, which I like the most, could have been better though. 3 out of 5 stars.
