Quotes

Grandma: Are you gonna help Tommy?
James: Sure. I'll help him. Be my pleasure to help the boy.
James: [hands her a dollar] Here. Give him that for a bowl of soup.
Grandma: I know what happened to you, and what you think it cost you. But the son who left me many moons ago in search of his manhood came back to me a drunken, self pitying, overgrown child. You are a terrible example for our people and a disgrace to your mother. You have an opportunity now to do some good.

The best of the Best of the Best movies
19 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

This movie was awesome! I don't remember the last time I enjoyed a martial arts movie as much as I enjoyed this. The fighting is sensational and the performances of the actors are very convincing and even touching in parts, rare for a B martial arts film. I can honestly say I enjoyed this more than the first and consider it the best of the first two. I cannot comment on the other sequels since I haven't seen them but I will definitely check them out. If you are looking for a great authentic action and martial arts film that is chock full of mindless and brutal violence, then look no further. As I was watching the movie, all I could think was how did this film managed to slip through my fingers? Anyway, if you are into this type of thing and see it at your local video store, give it a rent. You'll be glad you did. Bottom line: this movie rocks!
