Storyline

A group of Russian mobsters have stolen a huge supply of paper for printing U.S. currency, and are now flooding the market with conterfeit bills. When one of the mobsters decides to give herself in and hand over a data CD to the DA, she is shot and killed, but not before handing the disc to an unsuspecting Tommy Lee. Despite working with the police as a martial arts instructor, Lee doesn't go to the cops with the disc, but instead goes on the run, giving the mafia time to kidnap his daughter and hold as a hostage in exchange for return of the disc. Will Tommy ever see his daughter again? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Best of the Best of the Best series
8 May 2013 | by frickabeeSee all my reviews

I caught this movie on TV and wondered why I had never heard of it before. I love cheesy popcorn action flicks such as Cliffhanger, Speed and The Marine - movies that you might not enjoy as much unless you check your brain at the door first. This movie has it all: motorcycles, helicopters, machine guns, explosions and even some ridiculous one-liners. After seeing this, I couldn't wait to watch the first three movies in the series, seeing how most movie franchises hit their peak by the second movie. I was extremely disappointed in how slow and boring the first three movies are and the first one isn't even worth watching a second time. The fourth movie in the series isn't exactly Shakespeare, but unlike the first three movies, it maintains a good pace and has several recognizable, well-established actors in it such as Ernie Hudson, Paul Gleason, Tobin Bell and Art LaFleur.
