Overcoming obstacles never seems to amaze me!
26 April 2011 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

Anyone can be a martial artist whether they are normal or handicapped. For two men, they overcame betrayal. One man lost his arms to the other fighter, and the one who maimed him is double-crossed by his own master, gets his legs burned off. So both men are have to cooperate against him and his crew. The armless fighter packs some powerful kicks and his stubby end helps him hold the staff without major difficulty. The legless fighter works on his arm strength, and can land his weight with devastating results. The mission for these men is Revenge! Betrayed by their master, these men will not stop until he is dealt with! Now training in the martial arts is grueling, and it happens to strengthen the individual. For people who are crippled, they have to experience the same with a few differences there. This movie is very fascinating, very intriguing, and very intensifying. I enjoyed it very well. 3 out of 5 stars!
