Throwback action-adventure reminds us that pain grows the spirit !
Stars: Morgan Benoit. A Jose Montesinos picture.
When I was in my action/adventure movie immersion in the '70s and '80s, Michael Dudikoff would come out with a American Ninja flick like every 8 months. Barrio Brawler brings us again to the James Ryan,Leo Fong, and David Heavener School Of Acting- Athletes from decades back. The scenes come off "ROCKY" like from the raw first movie,Not the manufactured physique of 2-6 ? Jose Montesinos has a superstar, Morgan Benoit,Who like Jean-Claude Van Damme in his first major role is the bad guy, See what we are getting at Barrio Brawler is awesome to watch ! The hero,Marco Alvarez, Has the underdog giving us his all acting style,Very welcome performance.
