The trailer is misleading... not a bad movie but...
4 February 2011 | by (Quebec) – See all my reviews

You watch the trailer, you are expecting a "bloodsport" movie. But thing is its all about the romance between the teacher and Bond, and to be honest i didn't click much with that. I don't mind the hero having a romance in a martial arts movie, but not making it stand for 40 min of the movie... even more maybe.

The competition have a small place and except the main character fights, most of the rest is fast-forwarded and you don't see much of the other competitor beside the principals...

Anyway lets just say with more action, less romance, the story would have be good enough to make a nice movie, but i can't give it more than 6 here....
