One of the classics
25 March 2018 | by nagyovamonikaSee all my reviews

I personaly like this movie. Seen it for the first time as a little girl when it just came out. Its a good karate movie from 1993 so of course if u watch it 20 years later its not gonna be the same. Especialy when karate movies are not as popular as they use to in 90's. So the bad reviews are not very fair.
