Storyline

Years ago, Ken Min failed to stop his friend from killing a young couple, leaving their infant son orphaned. After his friend is sent to prison for the crime, Ken spends his life running away from his shame. Seeking redemption, he teaches mixed Martial Arts out of a community youth center. But Ken is ultimately forced to face his past when the orphaned boy finds his way into Ken's life, and Ken's murderous friend is released from prison. When he discovers that these two events are not a coincidence, Ken must choose between a heroic act of self-sacrifice or the self-preservation of running away. Written by Kurt Nangle

Crisply-executed flick with eye-catching cast
3 December 2011 | by (San Francisco, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie requires two viewings.

The first is for the martial arts, the story, the conflict, the characters, the martial arts, the twists and turns, and, of course, the martial arts.

The second is for the cinematography. This is not your typical one-weekend basement-budget hand-held camera movie, but a well-filmed and nicely-edited piece, with eye-catching angles, curious locations, fascinating faces, and varied lighting, from high noon to late night, from sun-baked outside desert to indoor fluorescent studio.

Jino Kang is (for me, at least) a Korean butt-kicking Ken Takakura, and Bill Duff is an interesting counter-foil (especially if you've seen him in the "Human Weapon" series. The rest of the cast are an eclectic melange that makes the movie seem that much more real.

Disclaimer: I had minor involvement with the making of this movie, but I enjoyed watching it anyway. :-)
