This is a well made, low key thriller about knife fighters in Rio. Peter Coyote gives one of his best performances. The only quibble I had with the film is that I wanted to see A WHOLE LOT MORE KNIFE FIGHTING!
After all that great, cool set up and the main character undergoing the Art of Knife Fighting training. I was a bit disappointed we didn't get many more knife fights. This could have been the ultimate knife fighting movie. Still, it's good. But when during the final fight sequence I wanted something more spectacular, blood spraying to the heavens like the end of Kurosawa's Sanjuro. And after seeing the extraordinary knife fighting sequence in Kill Bill I was expecting a little more.
