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

This movie is set in 1998. Tommy has a daughter that is clearly at least 5 years old. It also shows old footage of him and his "wife" who is supposedly deceased, who he would have known for at least 5 years. In Best of the Best 3, just 3 years earlier, he had no wife and no daughter. See more »

I love the first two films which were both directed by Robert Radler. It isn't often that part 2 is as good as the original.. Eric Roberts didn't return for Part 3 (1995) and that time Phillip Rhee didn't just star in it, he also produced and directed Best Of The Best 3: No Turning Back".
Different fromt the other two, this was more a Van Damme or Seagal kind of film. But unfortunately, the martial arts hype kind of died halfway the 90's. Seagal and Van Damme went to straight-to-video with very average and limited budget films. Enter "Best Of The Best 4: Without Warning"..
It's hard to believe that Rhee once again produced and directed. Like part 3 (Gina Gershon, R. Lee Emrey, Dee Wallace Stone, Mark Rolston) he was smart enough to surround himself once again with quality actors (Ernie Hudson, Art LaFleur, Tobin ("Jigsaw") Bell) but their characters are flat and one dimensional. Hudson gives a new meaning to the word overacting as angry cop. And Bell is annoying, as most of the villians in this farfetched plot. Some laughable FX and unbelievable stunts (martial arts teacher Tommy Lee has now suddenly the skills of Ethan Hunt ? ).
On the good side there's plenty of (average) action.The fight scenes are not bad but not great either. But they are the highlight of the film because everything else is below average. So strictly for martial arts fans but also they have to admit the series didn't deserve this swan song.
