Good entertainment. The top of the genre., 27 June 2002
Author: JRod from United States

I've seen quite a few of these "re-released in America" films lately. 95 percent were only worth watching because of the cool fight scenes, but The Enforcer adds drama and character development to make a well rounded experience. The two boys' friendship is a prime example and is quite touching. Some people complained about fight scenes being unrealistic (wire work). To that I say-every movie from this genre has the same problem, so don't criticize The Enforcer. For those of you who plan to watch this on DVD: I found the English dubbed version (Dimension Home Video) to be much better in quality than the imported Chinese/Mandarin version. Subtitles draw your eyes away so you miss certain things, and the video transfer was pretty bad on the imported version. Bottom line--add this to your collection, it's a keeper.
