Well, this was just nothing at all as what the DVD cover made it look like...
22 June 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I am sort of perplexed about the title of the movie. The DVD I purchased from Amazon is titled "Fist of the Warrior", but when I read the print on the back of the movie it says "Blood Money", and yet here on IMDb the movie is titled "Lesser of Three Evils". Hmmm, well there are three titles (three evils?), and lesser of, well perhaps that is a reference to the lack of a proper storyline in the movie?

Anyway, the storyline (or lack there of) in the movie is about Lee Choe (played by Ho-Sung Pak) who is a retired hit-man, who ends up chasing after his former employee, John Lowe (played by Peter Greene), as he kills Lee's girlfriend. And that is basically it, then it is all about Lee going from point A to point B and fighting every single bad guy that stands in his way. Oh, wait, then director Wayne Kennedy cleverly tried to incorporate a side story about a corrupt cop (played Roger Guenveur Smith) and his drunken wife (played by Sherilyn Fenn)... But it just didn't add up to a greater interwoven storyline. No, it turned out to be a rather meaningless and pointless storyline that was something taken right out of a 1990's beat 'em up arcade game.

The storyline was basically as thin and non-existent as it could get, and the attempts to mingle in a tale of revenge with a tale of a corrupt police officer, just didn't really work out well. Especially because both tales were told with such a lack of detail and luster that you just simply didn't really care about any of the characters in the movie.

And speaking of the characters, well they were fairly one-sided, two-dimensional and stereotypical. And it didn't much help the movie that most performances put on here by the cast was just half-hearted.

The DVD cover has Ho-Sung Pak on it with a massive on his arm and back, but wait, it isn't even there in the movie. All he has is a single Asian letter on the arm. It was such a ridiculous DVD cover, but hey, it worked well to lure in people. I was suckered in by it.

If you enjoy action movies, then I would strongly suggest that you find your fix elsewhere, because "Fist of the Warrior", "Lesser of Three Evils", "Blood Money", or whatever this movie is properly titled just doesn't deliver anything noteworthy on any front. The movie cover brandishes "starring martial arts master Ho-Sung Pak", well that might very well be so, but the martial arts in the movie was few and far apart and the acting, well that was just abysmal.

On a closing note, I will point out that the DVD also brandished "he is the ultimate weapon". Well, indeed, but I had a weapon that managed to defeat him and will do so any given day; the eject button on the remote control.
