What can i say,probably the best martial art movie
16 August 2007 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

All four Vanishing Sons are great.I love Jin Wa and Wago they were my heroes and they stir are.When i first watch Vanishing Son 3, i wan't to watch Vanishing Son 4 and i did't,later i won't to see the first two movies,later i watch the first Vanishing Son but i'did not see Vanishing Son 2,what can i say,probably the best movies of the 90's.When i'saw the first movie,i actually believe that Jian Wa is real and that he really lives somewhere in America and that he's have a adventures of his life.What can i'say,i love them both.I love Jian Wa and Wago when the fought with soldiers on China and when the were forced toe fled from China and then were captured by the police and were sand to jail,and than they must fought,with three other prisoners and later they were free and the movie shows how tough they live and fought for their survival.I love where Wago sad when gangsters run's this country then i' be a gangster.I t was the great words he ever said.I love Jian Wa who try to earned honestly his money and i love Wago when he goes back to live of violence and try to earn his money illegally,he wants to get power and respect.I love all four movies,they are the best.I love the stories,characters,and theme song.It is the best,but i'still can not believe that i'm the only fan of this movies,only four comments here and they ever not said how great this movies are and i still can not believe that the part 2 and 3 nobody comments,that's really sad.And when they were released on DVD all four when,it's hard to find this movie,i'wait one year to get the first movie.This is the best movies ever made.
