Not worth its rare status...
25 October 2011 | by (Quebec) – See all my reviews

Well this movie is not bad... its just correct... Maybe this is the whole problem. It kinda try to find its mark. The general script is a total rip off of "The running Man" starring good ol Arnie. Now i remember the running man and it was no martial art movie. So you could think having Lorenzo as your main character, there could be lots of martial arts right? But no... this movie dosen't deliver on that side either. A couple fights here and there, but really basic "kick boxing" stuff, nothing impressive, no emotions whatsoever. Can't say i was bored by that movie, but can't say i was really into it either. Its kind of like a lower degree Running Man and the martial arts aspect is totally on the side... like they include some sure, but nothing impressive at all.

At some point i am starting to think maybe Lorenzo didn't do anything much impressive outside Final Impact. Cause yeah Final Impact(Not Final Round) is one of my classic martial arts movie of the 90s. One of my favourite. He was not the lead, but had a big role and was on the cover of it. But after that, i tried finding many movies with him and either he had no martial arts role at all, or the movie where he was supposed to have a lots of martial arts look impressive but in the end where pretty much disappointing. Night of the warrior, Bounty Tracker for example, even fighting THE best villain in martial arts movies, Mattias Hues, the movie manage to have very few martial arts scene and unimpressive fights. Now am i too demanding? Maybe when i buy/rent a martial arts movie, i hope there will be tons of it, maybe its just because final impact have a huge part in my childhood(one of the first martial arts movie i saw, yet re watching it 15 years later it was still awesome) but well i am disappointed of other Lorenzo's movie i saw. The guy is a real black belt in life, i don't understand why he can't manage to do as good as Cynthia Rothrock, Don Wilson and Richard Norton did in the 90s
