First of all, this movie is not about a great story or acting at a Shakespeare level. This movie is about fights, action and pure martial arts. Urban Fighter is a real old school martial arts action movie, mixed with fresh influences from Banlieue 13 and Ong Bak. I was very surprised to see a martial arts movie coming from Germany at all and then such a good one. I have read a quote from Isaac Florentine (the director of Ninja and Undisputed 2+3) on the DVD cover before I bought it. It say's "Mike Möller is the European answer to Jet Li and Tony Jaa". What can I say, in terms of martial arts, I have to agree!!! In terms of story and acting the movie unfortunately is mediocre at best. It is the fights and stunts, which makes that movie unique. But honestly, who of us has watched the early Van Damme, Lundgren or Seagal movies for their story or their "good" acting??
