Training under a renowned martial arts expert, Bond learns to supplement his Thai Kickboxing skills with various styles of Chinese kun-fu, creating a powerful hybrid fighting style. With his new skills, Bond prepares to take on Tank and the fight of his life.
if i wasn't totally ravished by mr. wu and his charming korean counterpart, i would have never have forgiven daniel lee for this careless, unbelievable spectacle of love and action mishmash. this film had so much potential, they were lucky to get very endearing actors, but something went terribly wrong during production. either they were not reviewing the takes that the cameraman made (blairwitch project was much more steady compared to this), and the scriptwriter seemed to have written this overnight, after he has partied and drank enough alcohol. so many elements are thrown in, there is even a comatosed grandfather involved. flashbacks of his lovelife as a soldier with a nurse keep on coming, as if it is a reference to the romance Bond has made with this korean teacher...i needed to consult a psychologist to actually understand what went on with these two. the fight scenes were unbelievable and i commend wu for his outstanding performance...but i couldn't help feeling sorry for all those months that he dedicated to train and to learn the skill -- it was all captured in a rather weird type of film. the filmmakers can't decide if it was an action-drama film, an artistic film, a pop film or a docu-reality type. truly, i would love it if this film would be remade and given enough love to make it rise to its full potential. my love still goes out to wu for such an endearing performance.
