She's a good mom
3 January 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Like Michael Corleone, Lorenzo Lamas wants to kick the kickboxing racket because he's paid his debt in full to the folks he borrowed money from to start his dance club. But he's being pulled back in again because fight promoter Anthony Geary is in debt to some Korean gangsters also in the kickboxing promotion business. And Geary will do just about anything to get Lamas back especially after what he sees the Koreans are capable of.

That in a nutshell is Night Of The Warrior and Lorenzo Lamas has made a nice career in doing competent action films, but this isn't one of them. In fact it drags considerably in spots as Lorenzo is shown to have a sensitive side and an interest in photography. It's his real passion.

Why he's doing the dance club thing is more for his mother played by his real life mother Arlene Dahl. She's an old Broadway dancer who knows little else and this gives her a living. She's the best one in a rather mediocre film.

I'm sure Arlene Dahl missed the big studio glamor at MGM from her salad days. But she's a good mom and no doubt Lorenzo's a good son and she's helping her offspring. But Lorenzo kicking and Arlene's still ravishing beauty can't save this.
