Trivia

Keith Vitali's character (Casey Alexander) has a plaster-cast on his arm throughout the entire movie. This was because Keith actually broke his arm in the audition for the movie. The whole plaster-cast bit was used throughout the movie and explained in the beginning (he apparently hurts his arm in the Bank robbery scene). See more »

Goofs

After Franco is hit with his own dart, Will and Casey switch positions between shots. See more »

Quotes

Casey Alexander: Come on Will. I don't think you're a failure, just a little strange.
Will Alexander: What do you mean?
Casey Alexander: It's the man's birthday and you show up in Khruschev's jacket!
[referring to the Soviet flag on the back of Will's jacket]

No Boredom, No Snoozefest 3: Kick-ass Brothers
12 October 2010 | by (Land of the dead) – See all my reviews

this is the first movie of the "No Retreat, No Surrender" series that i watched.

The fights are well choreographed (reminds me of the work of Corey Yuen, director of the first No Retreat, No Surrender), thrilling, entertaining and well made.

Loren Avedon and Keith Vitali made a good team up, Rion Hunter did an awesome job as "Franco", the villain.

Plot: After their father got killed by Franco, the leader of a terrorist organization, Will (Avedon) and Casey (Vitali) must revenge their father's death, the political and moral point of view of the two brothers are different, sometimes leading to some disagreement.

Watch it even if you haven't see the 2 previous movies of the No Retreat, No Surrender series.

It's like a martial arts movie made in Hong Kong with American actors, super recommended.
