Storyline

The police does not know what to do. They have to deal with a serial killer who aims at martial arts masters. One after another is killed in the same brutal way. This may be a chance for detective Linda Masterson to work on her first murder case. She gets the job and to her side an other martial arts specialist, Sgt. Tarek Richards. Now they need to find a tiger style master, because the killer obviously uses tiger style kung fu. Not a simple task, since tiger is a very ancient and rare style. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

Bolo Yeung Saves It From Obscurity!
30 August 2008 | by (Phoenix, USA) – See all my reviews

The unstoppable force that is Bolo Yeung continues to run out of control in Tiger Claws. In this film Bolo goes up against Jalal Merhi, who wrote.. who produced.... who Co-STARRED in this legendary Yeung vehicle.

Tagging along with Merhi is the hot Cynthia Rothrock, who's name not only sounds like a porn star, but she also voice acts like one. No emotion what so ever is detected in her lines, which is offset by her phenomenal martial arts ability and incredible pectoral superiority.

The only thing that manages to bring Tiger Claws down from a perfect 10 would be Jalal Merhi's entire performance as the "hero", and the two cop buddy extras from Beverly Hills Cop. (hey man, we aren't gonna fall for no banana in a tailpipe!)
