Trivia

At the 18 minute mark of BEST OF THE BEST 3: NO TURNING BACK we find our hero Tommy Lee (Phillip Rhee) traveling in his old blue Pontiac on a narrow dirt road to visit his sister. Next, he is abruptly run off of this road by a careless young skinhead racist driving an old blue pick-up truck. We see Tommy swerve off of the road and damage his vehicle. When he swerves we get to see a few clear frames of his license plate. It is a Nevada license plate that reads: "H7E386." It is a reminder of the last film (BEST OF THE BEST 2) when Tommy was engaged in a no-holds-barred fighting tournament in Las Vegas. See more »

A bit too clichéd and predictable to be enjoyable.
11 August 1999 | by (West Vancouver, B.C.) – See all my reviews

Looking for a martial arts movie with realistic villains? A made-for-TV-movie with a 'theatrical' budget? An ethnic hero whipping some redneck racist butt? Well, you'll find it here, albeit with sub-par results.

While the actual fighting in the film is all right (though I've seen better), some of the dialogue and characterizations need re-editing. The acting ranges from passable to 'William Shatner' (especially from the Klan leader - the guy with the goatee). The plot for BOTB3 is shaky - you can easily predict what the racists are going to do next and what the hero is going to do about it. The climax can be described as similar to the average horror/chop-sockey movie: not quite believeable (how can one guy take on 50 (or so) villains - with guns no less?) and devoid of thrills. Oh yeah, that Owen kid (the troubled teen who joins the racist gang) is heavily involved in the climax, and EVERYONE who watches this movie will be able to guess what he does at the end, even if they turn it off half-way.

This film is kind of like an episode of 'Walker, Texas Ranger' - tame, predictable, and really not worth bothering with, since there are so many better choices available in your video store.
