Storyline

Michael, a Vietnam vet with two kids, pulls off a bank heist with his gang, which includes the bank's manager. To ensure the loyalty of everyone involved, Mike makes a special set of keys, so that the hiding place for the loot can only be opened if all the members are present. The bank manager, however, gets cold feet and tries to back out, so Mike and his buddies kill him and his wife. His daughter, however, gets hold of the key and runs for help to David, one of her father's old friends who also happens to be a Vietnam vet and a former comrade of Michael's. Will David be able to protect his friend's daughter? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Goofs

In the fight scene at the horse ranch, David Moore (Ed Neil) grows a week's worth of beard at the end of the fight. During the fight he is clean-shaven. However, when the fight is over, he has a full beard (looks like a week's worth of growth). See more »

Hilarious!
5 November 2002 | by afro_neilSee all my reviews

Breathing fire is one of those films most people will write off as a bad kung-fu movie on first viewing. But after you've watched it a few times you too will see the light and never watch 'bad movies' in the same way again. The plot is ridiculous and the acting is at best cheesy, but that is what makes the film so good. There are countless goofs,pointless scenes and plot holes but spotting them is half the fun. The martial arts aren't all that great, but there are some memorable moves such as the 'bowling ball'. You also get to see the two lead characters on the receiving end of a kick in by two midgets which is pretty funny. All in all next time you're rifling through the second hand videos and this catches your eye don't hesitate to purchase this fantastic film, I guarantee it will give you, and your friends hours of fun.
