Storyline

a man named Kaan Woo (James Lew) is escaping his dark past, having been involved with a cult of brown shroud-wearing, druid-like monk warriors that have mystical powers. He apparently wanted out, because their evil queen, Ling Li (Nancy Kwan) has sent her servant, Sir Xavier (Richard Norton) to do her bidding - i.e., eliminate Woo. During a battle with the dark forces, Woo's soul is transferred into the body of homeless drunkard Earl Stockman (Mark Pellegrino). Now this bum is as surprised as anybody to find out he has mystical kung-fu abilities. Now "Superbum" must take on the evil cult and win the day. Written by IvanWong

I love his genre
10 October 2014 | by m_roberts_07See all my reviews

I am a major martial arts/action movie buff ever since childhood. This is something that is going to be with me forever. I had to put in my own voice here to give this movie a chance so I'm probably the only positive reviewer. Of course people aren't going to like this too much if they aren't hardcore enthusiasts of this genre.

You've got Richard Norton, James Lew and Gerald Okamura with Karen Sheperd...They are all great martial artists and perform martial arts. Who needs great acting or dialogue. I am in it for just the fight scenes and there are plenty. If you are into bad martial arts/action movies then this is right up your alley. You'll enjoy it for what Soul Of The Avenger has to offer.
