As a Martial Arts Movie...
24 November 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

As a Martial Arts Movie The Power Within is not a badly put together display of moves. It gives you a sense of self awareness you didn't know you had.

It teaches you not to think of yourself a failure all the time but to put in what you've got. To be able to show others I CAN DO IT.
