Best Don Wilson film ever!!!!!
7 June 2004 | by (Marlow, England) – See all my reviews

Here's a little story about me. I love my B-movies. I like to watch and laugh. Don Wilson amuses me it has to be said. He has starred in some great movies, Cyber Tracker, Lion Strike, Out For Blood, Bloodfist, Fist Of Blood, Bloody Death, Black Blood, Dragon Blood and Blood. Not to mention 10 sequels to each film. Okay so I made some up. Now the newest Don fist fest I had seen before this was, Batman Forever but his voice was computer enhanced and he was in it five seconds. Other than that the most modern Don film was Lion Strike from 1994. This is basically because Don films are hard to come by in England, on DVD at least and I'm not one for raiding the states or Ebay for these sorts of movies. I wanted to see this movie for one reason or another but figured I'd need to wait ten years for it to come out here. I was wrong. While perusing a local store that is selling B-movie DVD's for 1.49pounds. Then I saw it! Boy did I see it! It took me by surprise and I was giddy with excitement.

Now the film. It is the best Wilson film I have seen. That means little in all honestly because it's not exactly great stuff but it is not hilariously bad. It is not totally inept and Wilson has improved a lot in ten years with his acting. He looks tougher too. I know he's king of all kickboxers but he never looked menacing to me. With his increasing years he looks tougher and more weathered. As well as Wilson the film star other B-movie stalwards like Cynthia (kill me now please!) Rothrock and Rihard Norton as well as Sam Jones, that's Flash Gordon that is! FLASH GORDON!!!!!!!!!

Anyway this is all directed by another B-legend, Art Carmacho. The story has all the clichés you expect from a B-movie and it has Don as a cop so inevitably his partner gets killed and he gets fired. What does alter is that he gets involved with a druglord, albeit a nice druglord by Chris Penn (damn I didn't mention Chris!). Wilson actually stretches a little and even though he's not very good he doesn't embarrass himself like I have seen for example Gary Daniels do when stretching. There are needless fights, however no gratuitous nudity which is a let down.

As for the aciton. Well it's pretty generic. Wilson gives some of his best fights but for me still doesn't fight convincingly on screen. This is dues to him pulling his punches and the very basic choreography. Rothrock doesn't get much action however she does unleash her trademark scorpion kick.

All in all this was surprisingly better than expected. It's not great but is at least watchable. **
