Storyline

Jeff, a young delinquent, is enrolled by his father in a kenpo school, in the hopes of teaching the boy some self-discipline. Years later, Jeff's mentor, Kim, is being threatened by one of the Korean mafia families. Jeff tries to help his old friend, but is too late to prevent Kim's death at the hands of an unknown hitman. Vowing revenge, Jeff takes on all of the families, using his martial arts skills to find the man who killed his friend. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Not bad for new comer Jeff Speakman
5 September 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must say Speakman puts on one heck of a show here. his martial arts choreography is very well done, demonstrating the effectiveness of his techniques and style. As an actor, he has the basic goods, but is still a little rough around the edges. Certainly better than Jean Claude, maybe a step bellow Seagal. ANYway, the movie is not bad at all, a little twist in the plot about using Jeff as a weapon for the Korean mafia to use against a rival gang. Worth seeing for the martial arts or action fan.
