TERRIFIC ACTION THRILL RIDE THAT WON'T LET UP.
30 July 2000 | by (Cardiff,Wales) – See all my reviews

This is an example of action moviemaking at its finest and dwarfs many major studio releases that I have seen which would have cost 10 times the budget of RIOT.This action gem stars British born Gary Daniels for my money the best martial artist in movies today and his superb fighting skills combined with the looks and acting ability that many A list stars will never possess makes it a genuine mystery why this man has yet to make it to the top.Here Gary plays SAS man Shane Alcott who fights(literally) a running battle against expletive spitting street gangs and latterly the IRA terrorist hit squad who have kidnapped a girl purely with the intention of luring Alcott into a revenge based attack.The fight scenes in this movie(which co-stars Sugar Ray Leonard)will leave the viewer begging for more and with Gary Daniels churning out action fests like this on a regular basis,they will not be begging for long.An absolutely terrific movie,one of the very best of its kind.
