This movie is based on the same Robert King's story as "Bloodfist" and "Dragon Fire". If you saw either one of those movies and are looking for an original martial arts flick, look again. All three movies follow exactly the same plot. "Dragon Fire" tried to update the story with a futuristic backdrop. This movie simply remakes "Bloodfist" with a much smaller budget and a white lead. Having said that, this movie is not worse than most low-budget American-made martial arts flicks. It follows the same scenario as half of those films -- a noble fighter decides to enter no-holds-barred-tournament to avenge his brother or best friend. While praparing for the tournament he dates a stripper and befriends her mentally retarded brother. Robert King's story has a twist in the end, related to the identity of the killer. The twist is not too unexpected though. Basically, if you like formulaic b-movies where beefy, shirtless, sweaty men beat each other senseless, you will probably enjoy this one a lot.
