Sweet Surrender
28 September 2006 | by fmarkland32See all my reviews

Loren Avedon and Keith Vitali star as two martial arts expert brothers ho team up to take down the ruthless murderers who squashed their father. Lot s of martial arts battles are waged in the course of this film. Loren Avedon is a gifted martial artist and watching him fight is ultimately the real show to watch. He actually has somewhat of a screen presence and his acting while admittedly not very good is still better than his co-star Keith Vitali. What finds most strange about No Retreat No Surrender 3:Blood Brothers, aside from the obvious fact that it has nothing to do with the first (Sadly there is no ghost of Bruce Lee) or second (I guess, since I haven't seen it) is that it makes literally no dramatic sense on any level. There are so many scenes of gleeful stupidity that you can't help but cave and enjoy the movie as such. The action sequences are however are what make this thing great to watch. The action sequences are thrilling and in a Z-grade martial arts thriller, that is all that counts. I recommend it as a perfect way to avail yourself in glorious ass-kicking, that is why this movie is so enjoyable.

* *1/2 out of 4-(Pretty good)
