Somewhat underwhelming martial arts movie
9 April 2011 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The way "Los Bravos" is packaged on DVD makes it look like it has to do with inner city Hispanic gangs, but it isn't. It's another take on the formula of a former soldier discovering the former members of his team being eliminated for mysterious reasons, and he himself finding he's been targeted. I don't mind seeing a familiar formula again, as long as it's done well, but "Los Bravos" isn't. It's surprisingly slow, with the hero only finding himself on the run and in danger after more than half an hour has passed. The production values are very low as well, with some scenes being lit so badly that it's hard to tell what's going on. As the lead character, Hector Echavarria is a pretty poor actor, but he clearly knows his martial arts, and some of the martial art sequences he's in aren't bad. But the slow pace and low rent feel of the entire enterprise don't make the fights worth sitting through the whole movie. Those interested in seeing the movie due to martial arts legend Bill "Superfoot" Wallace being billed will be disappointed, because he only has one short scene.
