Storyline

The police do not know what to do. They have to deal with a serial killer who aims at martial arts masters. One after another is killed in the same brutal way. This may be a chance for detective Linda Masterson to work on her first murder case. She gets the job and to her side an other martial arts specialist, Sgt. Tarek Richards. Now they need to find a tiger style master, because the killer obviously uses tiger style kung fu. Not a simple task, since tiger is a very ancient and rare style. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

I've Seen Better Acting in Porno
2 November 2005 | by M_CobrettiSee all my reviews

I honestly feel bad for the people who made this movie. You can tell that they take themselves seriously and are hoping something decent will come of their efforts.

Unfortunately for all involved, including the viewer, all we're left with is an embarrassing excuse of a movie. I won't get into the plot - there's really no sense. As you can imagine, there's a bad guy, some good guys and a lot of kicking. The only interesting twist in this one is that the star is a woman, and she actually has some pretty decent moves, I guess. Her acting, if you can call it that, is beyond horrific, even for martial arts movies, and she doesn't have much of a supporting cast to help her out either.

Even if you are a martial arts movie fan, stay away from this mess. My girlfriend walked in the room when I was watching it and it literally took twenty minutes of viewing to convince her that I wasn't watching a porno. I'm not sure she's convinced to this day.
