Good For What It Is.
26 February 2000 | by (Robinson, IL) – See all my reviews

Sure, this movie is low budget, but that doesn't mean it's no good. Gary Daniels is likable in one of his early staring roles. The fighting is almost non-stop from beginning to end. Don't expect Jackie Chan like perfection though. Don't expect oscar calibre acting either. But, most martial arts movie fans will almost definitely like it. I know I did. Also, the training sequence before the kick-boxing match is awesome!
