Storyline

Michael, a Vietnam vet with two kids, pulls off a bank heist with his gang, which includes the bank's manager. To ensure the loyalty of everyone involved, Mike makes a special set of keys, so that the hiding place for the loot can only be opened if all the members are present. The bank manager, however, gets cold feet and tries to back out, so Mike and his buddies kill him and his wife. His daughter, however, gets hold of the key and runs for help to David, one of her father's old friends who also happens to be a Vietnam vet and a former comrade of Michael's. Will David be able to protect his friend's daughter? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

This movie did suck. Bad! But I can't stop watching it because I know one of the actors. Eddie Saavedra and I used to serve on the same ship in the Navy, and true to the picture in the movie, he is a phenomenal martial artist. My only regret is I have lost contact with him when he used to be one of my heroes, because of this movie, and because he taught me almost everything I knew about the job we did together in the Navy when he was my supervisor. He really has talent. It was also great to see Jonathan Ke Quan acting again. He turned out to be quite a fighter himself. One thing I would definitely pay money to see is a better quality movie made with this duo put together again. "Breathing Fire" was definitely a "B" movie, but with the right directors, and better funding, Eddie and Jonathan could really shine.
