An excellent Jeff Speakman film--certainly his best.
20 October 1998 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

By far Jeff Speakman's best movie, this film demonstrates his martial arts expertise. The plot isn't bad, although it is truly the amazing fights that make this movie a must-see. If you like fast-paced martial arts battles, this is definitely the movie for you!
