Yasuaki Kurata, Simon Yam, Meg Lam, Bolo Yeung, and Shinya Ono speak English with no dubbing necessary as this film was an attempt to go international. See more »
When Masahiro and Ryu first meet, at the end of the fight the Gang Leader (Stuart Smith) gets thrown into the wind shield and hood of an on coming car with his head on the drivers side and feet on the passenger side with the wind shield damaged but intact. The next shot shows Smith's whole body inside the car with his feet sticking out on the passenger side of the wind shield, and the glass is gone before the car hits a pole. See more »
When i first saw this, i thought 'I will never see anything as terrible as this in my life'. I was wrong, though, because i saw Joel Reed's 'Bloodsucking Freaks'. This would have to come in a close second as the worst movie ever though.
People hire martial arts movies for one reason : Action. Me and 4 friends borrowed this while we were in a great mood, and turned it on hoping for some great fighting and possibly a feasible storyline. The first 5 minutes in the tournament were just what we wanted, and we were looking forward to more. 2 minutes later everybody but me had left. The movie starts off well, but simply degenerated into one of the most boring pieces of %#$^ ever. After the initial action, it is just people wandering around the streets talking to each other for over an hour. Would this satisfy a martial arts fan? That question doesn't need to be answered...
There is no reason at all to watch this movie. The acting is shoddy, the storyline in non-existent, and there is NO ACTION. I am disappointed in myself for sitting through this when everybody else got the fun of playing pool. This movie is so boring that I would rather spend 2 hours cleaning public toilets than watch it. The lowest mark should be lowered to a 0 for this movie. 1 is too high.
