I didn't expect much but was quite sure that the film wouldn't totally disappoint me either. I was right. It wasn't disappointing at all, actually it was quite a nice way to spend two hours of your life when you don't know what else to do.
The film is about a young man named Ken who is falling in love with the sister of Hong Kong kickboxing champion Bruce. Bruce is not very pleased to see his sister falling in love with Ken and beats him up pretty badly. Ken wants to challenge Bruce to get his revenge and because of that he also starts to practice. But during the fight Ken accidentally kills Bruce. He is now left by Gloria and when he finally reunites with her he is already heavily injured. He accepts one last fight against the Asian champion in honor of Bruce risking his life.
The acting is not bad at all, actually it's better than you'd expect from this kind of movie. The choreography of the fight sequences is very well done and seems quite real without too many freaky (and therefore unrealistic) moves. The direction is quite good and sometimes highly energetic. The love story also included in this film never gets too sentimental. I was very happy to see that this movie never was unintentionally funny like most of the American counterparts.
Overall an enjoyable film, not exceptional but a good Sunday afternoon film.
My rating: 7/10
