Enjoyable vehicle for Wilson
22 October 2004 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Don "The Dragon" Wilson was able to escape the clutches of schlockmeister Roger Corman for a little while and make this movie, which is one of his best. I know that might not seem much of a declaration, considering the poor quality of many Wilson movies, but this one managed to be genuinely entertaining. While a low-budget movie, the production values manage to be slick enough so that no scene looks especially cheap. The martial art scenes, while not up to those from Hong Kong movies, can be considered more realistic, and do manage to be exciting at times. There's even a decent attempt to do some character development! Speaking of the characters and actors, there is some good support from supporting players Ironside and (especially) Mako. The movie could have been given a little trimming (it goes on too long), but overall this is a solid little B movie.
