I loved this movie!!!
21 September 2004 | by lasianapSee all my reviews

I loved this movie, I'm a girl and I love action movies. Especially Karate and stuff. I also do Karate so i guess when I chose this movie I knew that it would be really good! My favorite actor in the movie has got to be Max Elliott Slade (Colt), I just think that he is so hot! Not only that but talented too. Too bad he's not acting anymore, or is his? If anyone has any in formation on him please let me know. I would really like to know if he is still acting. Well as for the movie I think that it is really good and I would love to see the sequels. Also it's a shame that some of the actors could not be in all of the movies. But these things happen.
