Rhee and the Deep South Don't Match
19 October 2012 | by ebiros2See all my reviews

Although movie has the quality of Phillip Rhee's movies, somehow the mood doesn't match him. They should have kept the main character a black marine from the gulf war. That would make lot of sense in this movie.

Skin heads aren't interesting as far as enemy is concerned. It's obvious that they're no match for the martial arts instructor. And on top of that they're just dumb and below the level of worthy opponent for anyone with Rhee's caliber.

So where does this movie fit into the Best of the Best series ? It doesn't.

The chemistry between the co-stars aren't as tight either. Rhee just isn't someone from the podocs. He fits in better in the city environment.

Watch the other Best of the Best series to really get the best of the best.
