A likable film, for what it is.
31 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

Shootfighter (and its sequel Shootfighter II) can claim only one real distinction; it gives Bolo Yeung a chance to play a good-guy for a change. I happen to like that. Otherwise it is a not- bad example of the 'no-rules tournament' school of martial arts film. The music strikes me as above average, and the acting isn't actually painful, but this isn't deep, significant, or an undiscovered gem of film history. It's a "B" film; an exploitation gig - what Roger Corman would do if he was into punch and kick operas.

Jet Li does this better, and so does Chuck Norris sometimes. Otherwise, you could do a LOT worse.
