Acting seem correct , but fighting was bad...
11 February 2012 | by (Quebec) – See all my reviews

Pretty much like the guy before me, i watched all that was made in the USA from 88 to 2012... Cynthia Rothrock, Don Wilson, Jalal Merhi, Van Damme, Seagal and all of those. I own pretty much everything. So i was surprise to see i didn't had this movie, i got it on ebay for a few bucks and here we go... Honestly i tough the acting was convincing enough, maybe I'm not a big "looker" of this, as long as its not terrible, i am satisfy when it comes to martial arts movies. But the fighting was pretty bad overall. The fights where slow, obvious punches missing and it seem they never knew where they wanted to go. It was like they tried some MMA style, then it switched to Kick Boxing stand-up fights. Then you think they try to aim for a realistic type of fight but couple minutes later you get some roundhouse kick that pretty much only works in the movies. And not to mention that except the fights featuring the main character, all the rest where indeed short, rushed and pretty bad.

Well... lets say this movie will just take its place in my collection, probably never to be watched again... But one mention to Jeanette, for a stunt double turned actress here, she did pretty well and she's very cute. I liked Martin Kove as Sonny Cool too. Honestly the problem with this movie was just the fights...
