Trivia

The man playing the tattoo artist is "Slik Rik" Milligan, who at the time was working at Studio City Tattoo in California. He was originally hired only to paint on the yakuza tattoos for the movie, but when a scene called for a tattoo artist he stepped in front of the camera. "Slik Rik" now resides in Hawaii and owns and runs North Shore Tattoo in Oahu. See more »

Bernhardts' best film so far
24 August 2001 | by (Essex, England) – See all my reviews

Being a martial arts film fan has its ups and downs, as you come across a lot of dross. However, this film was refreshing in that it was quite brutal about it's content. It was an adult action film therefore it had adult action in it. The main character was single minded in his objective and nothing would stop him. Basically he was a hard man.

The fights are pretty much by the numbers stuff but there is at least one kick of note, allowing Bernhardt to show his flexibility. It was pretty well paced and contained all the conventional set-ups for a fight (eg; has to ask some "tough guys" some questions they don't want to answer)

As in all these B movies the gunfights have no basis in reality but are done with enough aplomb to be passable.

All in all a real Friday night treat. Pizza and beers boys and you'll enjoy. And by far better than Perfect Target or Bloodsport 3 & 4.
