Slight tongue-in-cheek martial arts film
2 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

Although "Fight to Win" is armed with a cast that contains a likable George Chung, an always enjoyable as a villain Richard Norton, a sharp young Cynthia Rothrock, and Chuck Jeffreys (= Eddie Murphy + martial arts), there are much better martial arts films out there. The plot (pretty much a "Rocky III" ripoff) is VERY slight, even for just 77 minutes, the direction is mediocre, the sound mix is poor, and the fight scenes are average (for example, Norton and Rothrock's work is not even close to what they pulled off in a Hong Kong film they were both in the previous year, "Magic Crystal"). Chung's training scenes work better, and the film does inject a lot of humor into an often too-solemn genre, resulting in some amusing moments. But, as I said, you could do a lot better than this.
