Jake Raye: My brother was in a motorcycle accident. He needed a kidney. Actually he was my half brother but I gave him a whole kidney. And you can't fight with one kidney, it's like suicide. So I had to give it up.

Not quite a thrilla in Mannila, but enjoyable in its own way
28 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After his brother, Mike, is murdered in Manila, Jake (Don Wilson) travels down there to claim the body and must use his kick-boxing expertise to deal with the local highly-trained hooligans that had to do with his brother's untimely demise. He meets and stays with Baby and his sister Nancy (Riley Bowman)

If there's one fatal flaw with the film, I mean aside from the mediocre fight scenes, is the character of Baby, he's awful and brings the otherwise enjoyable , if not particularly good in the conventional sense of the word, don whenever he's on-screen. The writer of this is currently having fairly good fortune with hit TV show "The Good Wife", so the dues he paid were worth it, I kind of doubt he keeps this one on his resume though. Furthermore, 'The Dragon' would thankfully grow as an actor later in his career. I still hold a (unexplainable) soft spot for this film though.

Eye Candy: Riley Bowman and an extra get topless
