Unimpressive
17 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

With so many real-life kickboxing champions in various categories listed on the cover of this film, I expected more - the fight scenes are only average (at least they saved the best one for last). Too many of them are what in pro wrestling is often called "squash matches" - one of the opponents dominates the other completely. The leading man can't act at all, but he does have some funny facial expressions; a few of the other fighters are fun in a comic-book way ("the Hulk"). The movie is pointlessly set in the future, which for the director apparently means that he has to shoot everything through a blue filter (or maybe my VHS copy was just bad). It also wants to be a whodunit, as we don't see the face of the man who kills the hero's brother in the beginning. However, you'll easily guess who it was halfway through. (**)
