"Witness To A Kill" is an another movie that reinforces the fact that
Gary Daniels is a very cool actor\martial arts master.
The plot is about Captain Strong (Daniels) who is chosen to become the queen's messenger in Africa. When he arrives there is a ambush by terrorists. Strong also comes to realize that traitors are afoot.
In the end: "Witness to a Kill" is filled to the brim with rockin' martial arts and explosions. Watch it and have a great time. With my effusive praise, one might be tempted to think I am a producer for his films. Not so. I am merely a fan. For some more action-packed, awesome, entertaining excitement, I would recommend the following movies for the Gary Daniels neophyte: "Capital Punishment", "Bloodmoon" , and "Cold Harvest".

Gary Daniels is a talented martial artist, but he is not given many opportunities to show his talent in this movie: there are perhaps 3 or 4 fights in total, all under a minute long, that feel more like throwaways. The rest of the action is not particularly impressive, either. I was also disappointed with the parts of Eva Habermann and Françoise Yip: I was expecting them to get more involved in the action, but no: the former plays a somewhat spoiled German girl that Daniels is assigned to protect and the latter plays a globe-trotting TV reporter. In other words: for better Daniels, check out "Bloodmoon". For better Eva, check out "The Clown". And for better Françoise, probably any of her Hong Kong films will do the job. However, the "keep...keep talking, no...no that you idiot" scene (don't worry, you can't miss it) is pricelessly funny. (*1/2)
Without pointing out specifics, was there really a producer and
director involved in this movie in any way whatsoever; 5 minutes from
the end and I couldn't watch anymore.
OK, so Monica has absolutely no acting skills, but none of the others have much more than that. Still, I could deal with this if the producer, director or writer or whoever could have spent some time and made some of the scenes the least bit believable.
The fight scenes were so fake and there wasn't much action that I could see; or maybe it was that what there was was so bad. At times the bad guys apparently die from the lightest of touches and never ever ever fire their guns going down, and Captain Strong can apparently kick harder than a car going at 20 mph.
If I wanted really fake fight scenes, I watch kungfu movies.
Rock solid action combined with Daniels sly style, makes this a must
see. Gary Daniels is one of the few marital artist to carry the torch
the sluggish and crappy action movies from this decade. If you haven't
joined the Daniesl band wagon, jump on. This is a great movie to start
with. Other great Daniels flicks to check out, are Blood Moon, Cold
Harvest, Fist of The North Star, and Recoil.
To any of those critics out there who denounce this movie because of the action scenes and bad dialog, relax. It's called an adaptation of a Japanese style action flick.They been making movies like this, for years. A wise person once said, " you get what you pay for." If you like bad acting, Explosions, Guys hook up to wires flying all around, this may be for you. If not, rent something else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
