As a boxing fan in the 80s, this was a great return to the 80s genre. Granted, the special effects are not what they could be today, but the movie was still fantastic. For a fun trip down memory lane watch this movie. My only question is, where did Carlos Palamino go? Has anyone seen him? They should make a Fist of Steel two and add Oscar DeLaHoya. That would be a stretch. Also, if you are a Henry Silva fan you will like this one. I first became a fan of Silva in that Steven Segal movie, I think it was Above The Law. Anyway, this is a great movie if you want to see a real life action hero, not one of these phony guys who have never been in a real fight. I mean, come on, Carlos Palamino? You can't get any better than that.
