Did You Know?


This film was not originally intended to be part of the Bloodfist franchise. Concorde Pictures made it under the title Forced to Fight (it was even advertised with this title in trailers) but the title was changed to Bloodfist III: Forced to Fight before release to capitalize on Don 'The Dragon' Wilson's success with the first two Bloodfist films. The end credits also still portray the title Forced to Fight. This explains why star Don 'The Dragon' Wilson plays Jimmy Boland, a different character than the Jake Raye character he played Bloodfist I and II. See more »

Forced to kill...
24 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bloodfist III:Forced To Fight respectively stars Don Wilson as a prisoner who fights to survive the violence caused by racial gangs and the fury delivered by the leaders after a shift in power. Richard "Shaft" Roundtree is the mentor who takes Don Wilson under his wing and is the best thing about the movie. Don Wilson gets about as good as he ever gets and it helps that he is supported by a group of good supporting actors who give conviction to their roles. The main problem is that I was expecting kickboxing and lots of it, while it delivered enough of this to satisfy me, the whole Shawnshank Redemption approach mixed with kickboxing to the head never quite comes together the way it should. Others have given great reviews on this movie and while I agree that this is probably the best of the series it is still far from a good movie. It is instead just a decent martial arts time killer. The film's biggest crime however was inspiring the ultra lame Live By The Fist.

* *1/2 out of 4-(Pretty good)
