Storyline

A group of Russian mobsters have stolen a huge supply of paper for printing U.S. currency, and are now flooding the market with conterfeit bills. When one of the mobsters decides to give herself in and hand over a data CD to the DA, she is shot and killed, but not before handing the disc to an unsuspecting Tommy Lee. Despite working with the police as a martial arts instructor, Lee doesn't go to the cops with the disc, but instead goes on the run, giving the mafia time to kidnap his daughter and hold as a hostage in exchange for return of the disc. Will Tommy ever see his daughter again? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Worthy of its title
19 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Best of the Best is well named, because this is one of the if not the best martial action movie series ever made.

All the sequences are beautifully choreographed, and the action and the story comes together as one - which many martial action movies fail to do.

Phillip Rhee is a multi-talented director, actor that puts the likes of Chuck Norris, and Michael Dudikoff to shame. Only Bruce Lee had his kind of precision movements on screen.

The series also gets cudos for not losing quality through out its four episodes. Every other series of this type was a hit or miss proposition. They never were as consistent as this series.

The movie is also beautifully made, that has crisp looks, and elegant style.

Maybe this was the swan song for this type of martial arts action movie, but as they say, swans last song is its most beautiful,as this movie is.
