Storyline

William Rockman is a champion "Terminal Combat" fighter who retired from the sport after accidentally killing a young man while training. Five years after his retirement, Terminal Combat has been banned by the government and has gone underground. The "new" Terminal Combat is just that; one combatant in each match usually does not live to tell about the experience. When Rockman's younger brother is killed in one of the underground matches by his old rival, the King, Rockman enters the tournament to exact revenge on the King, not knowing that the King and his wife, Daria, have been enslaved by Max Brito, the tournament's greedy promoter. When it becomes known that Brito intends to rake in huge bucks for a rematch between Rockman and the King (their last fight 5 years before had ended in a draw), and that he also intends to kill the King either inside or outside of the ring (and therefore keep Daria for himself as a concubine), Rockman, the King, and other tournament survivors band ...

Just another straight to video movie filled with violence,bad acting,slow motion takes on some of the violence,and all around crap that makes me wonder how come the cable tv channel FX is showing this nonsense?They couldn't fill in the time with another M.A.S.H epidsode? The movie has the oldest plot in the book,that is that a martial arts veteran comes out of retirement to avenege the death of his brother at the hands of an illegal underground martial arts league where presumeably the martial arts veteran's brother died while participating in.Well whoop dee doo! We see all sorts of fights scenes and such including a female martial artist who ,the movie shows,could beat up a man rather easily.I don't believe this politically correct crap anymore than anything else in this schlock fest.This is trash that should make the makers of this film ashamed and the people who put up money to have this film made totally embrassed.
