Fists of Iron, Heart of Gold.
20 February 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Fists of Iron is your typical "Fight film with a heart". Even though the story's been told a zillion times, Director Munchkin gives it a fresh perspective. He brings the sometimes predictable script to life with interesting characters, and fight "maestro' Art Camacho does a great job with the fight action. Michael Worth makes up for his lack of charisma with his earnestness and veteran actors Sam Jones and Marshall Teague practically steal the show. Overall it is a very well done low budget flick proving that low budget doesn't have to equal bad filmmaking.
