This is my first review, so bare with me if this is not very good.
I have seen every B rated martial arts movie from Cynthia Rothrock, Jalal Merhi, Loren Avedon of the 80s all the way to the most recent Hector Echavarria movie. This movie plot has been done over and over, and because it was inspired by true events I thought it might be good. Boy was I wrong. The fight scenes were really bad. You could actually see the punches missing. The acting was really sad as well. Jeanette Roxborough is a stunt double trying to turn actress, so I'll cut her a little slack. Martin Kove is terrible at playing a good guy, and this movie just reinforces that statement. On top of all this, the fights in the tournaments felt rushed and most lasted like 30 seconds (some even faster then that). I'm not talking about highlights of the fight, I'm talking about from start to finish of the match. They should have used less people in the tournament and made the fights a little longer and more competitive.
Overall a big disappointment on a movie I really wanted to like. 3/10
