Daniel Bernhardt as Commando
29 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Saw this on TV years ago, I was surprised to see Daniel Bernhardt, I like his martial arts on screen, and he proved that after "Bloodsport" sequels, although he copied Van Damme a lot. I think that the director of this film was obviously inspired by Commando (1985). It has that good old element of daughter/son kidnap and than, usually a rampaging dad (who is, of course an ex-navy seal) go berserk, armed to the teeth, seeking his little precious bundle of joy and have his revenge. I liked this film, because I think that fighting scenes are good and I love Yakuza element here. All other things, do not pay any attention to them, this film is extremely low budget, so try to enjoy in solid action. Do not expect anything from actors either, Daniel Bernhardt is pretty stiff, trying to look like Van Damme in some scenes… now… when you look at him, he looks like John Matrix dressed all in black, to look more cool, you know, tall, dark and handsome, he had that long trench coat, ah yes and there's a scene where he enters a striptease bar and he spreads his coat just for bouncer to see that he is fully armed. That element was used before Matrix (1999) in this film. Keeanu Reeves, eat your heart out! Bernhardt did it before, and to mention that Bernhardt appeared as agent Johnson in Matrix Reloaded (2002)… as for other actors, we have George Cheung who appeared in most of these low budget martial arts films, he was solid as a leading villain, we have Miles O' Keeffe who plays a supporting villain who came back to serve his own revenge to Bernhardt and we also have martial artist Leo Lee and Roger Yuan, who did good job at kicking some butt. And to mention smoking hot Beverly Johnson as a military lieutenant Kada Wilson, the girl can't act, but she was, oooohhhhh… so hot! That body, those legs… marry me, Bev! :) OK, only kidding… this is strictly for martial arts fans, so enjoy in it.
