Jeff confirms it again.
25 November 2012 | by swedzinSee all my reviews

After "The Perfect Weapon", I just couldn't allow that this movie run away from me. And I really think that Jeff Speakman nails it again. With this film, he confirmed his low budget martial arts star status. Now, this is one of those good old low budget action films from the early 90s. Just turn off your brain and enjoy it, if you are a martial arts movies fan, you'll really enjoy it, and if you are a Kenpo practitioner, you'll enjoy it even more. Jeff Speakman is a master in Kenpo and Goju-Ryu karate, but primarily Kenpo, and he is presenting this martial art style in his films, just like Bruce Lee did with Jeet Kune Do, Chuck Norris with Tae Kwon Do, Jet Li with Wushu and Steven Seagal with Aikido. I think that Jeff deserves his place besides these great martial arts stars.

The story is one of those… the usual… Jeff plays Jake Barrett a former cop, now car mechanic, who quit the force because he filled guilty for the innocent victim's death. As I said… usual type of story, he is a "perfect weapon", "one man army" and "a tough guy"… but, he don't want to fight no more, because someone will push him later on… you know, that type of story. Jeff tried to do as much as he can with his acting, don't expect much acting in these kind of films, but besides him, and I think he steal the show… Christopher Neame, a good British actor, but in US, he constantly plays imposing villains, the good things is that he does it great. Neame was OK. We got a leading lady, Jennifer Gatti, a very lovely young actress, but… not great acting. We also have talents as Bernie Cassey and Ramon Franco. The action is good, fighting scenes are great, which makes it a good film to watch. I recommend it.
