Entertaining, but it's "Death Warrant" without Van Damme !!
12 January 2012 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

David Bradley is best known for martial arts hits like "American Samurai" and "American Ninja 3- Bloodhunt". He also starred in the very weak sequels "American Ninja 4- Annihilation" and "American Ninja 5". 1995's "Hard Justice" is one of his last movies and at that time, martial art movies were still very popular in video stores, but it was about to end after 5-7 years. It was the golden age of Van Damme, Seagal, Jeff Wincott, Lorenzo Lamas and Jeff Speakman. The story is anything but original and copies entire scenes from other movies. The opening scene has a shoot-out which was taken directly from 1992's "Hard Boiled" (John Woo). Bradley is even dressed the same as Hard Boiled's Chow Yun-Fat. So you have to wait about 15 minutes before you realize that the rest of the story is in fact 1990's "Death Warrant": it took the entire blueprint with the same characters and story development ! It was so obvious that anyone who ever saw "Death Warrant" would notice that. But martial arts movies are all about the action and wow, there's plenty of that ! The action and fight scenes are well choreographed and this is without a doubt the best action movie David Bradley ever made. (his acting career ended in 1997 when martial arts movies lost their popularity). A lot of the action reminds you of 1993's "Hard Target" (the best Van Damme ever, again directed by John Woo). So if you like this kind of movie, don't pass on this one if you missed it back in the days. It's no "Hard Target" but better than most martial arts movies from that 90's, and it provides a good mix of fighting and shoot-outs.
