The book from which Christopher Dubois is supposedly reading, and closes before the credits roll, has two short paragraphs that seems to resemble the theme of the movie, and then transitions into an ad for luxury yachts. See more »

Hey, clown boy! Get off of my street.
Wait a minute.
Hey, Dubois, what are you sick in the head or something? Please, grow up, go get yourself some new and nice clothes and come to work for me.
I don't work for nobody.
It's too bad, Dubois, it's too bad, you're a wasted talent, but nuts case, you know that. Suit yourself.

This movie is an awesome film that is really under rated. I am very into martial arts movies and I dont care how corny or stupid and I liked how this one was similiar to Van Dammes greatest "Bloodsport", I always like the "secret tournament, nobody knows about, in a hidden location" type movies, they never get old no matter how many times the plot is done over. If your one of those "oh it seems so scripted and not enough realism" type of watchers then dont get it, but if you block all that out and just focus on what the movie is really about then this is an awesome A+ movie. Great fight scenes and a good combination of different martial art styles.
