Well, it was a bland movie of martial arts and action that felt like it belonged in the 1990s...
2 May 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Right, well a movie released in 2020 that starred both Don Wilson and Cynthia Rothrock? Well, I can't exactly say that I had much of any expectations for a movie such as this, as both those had their peak back in the 1990s.

But still, I was given the chance to sit down and watch "Death Fighter", so of course I did, as I like to watch movies that I haven't seen before. And on the chance that the movie would be surprising, why not watch it?

Turns out that "Death Fighter" - a title that makes absolutely no sense to the plot of the movie - was mediocre at best. It definitely felt like I was watching some action movie that was made in the 1990s, for better or worse.

The storyline was simplistic, to be truthful. An American is in Thailand to help catch some criminal, and ends up enlisting the help of two locals to take down a vicious crime syndicate. So it is the stereotypical arch of a few good guys against a great number of bad guys.

One thing that always amuse me in movies such as "Death Fighter", is how the good guys (or heroes) can easily shoot goons and minions left and right without even blinking, taking down one per bullet. But when they are shooting at the main bad guy, they can't hit water even if they fell from a boat. It is just stupid.

This is an action movie mixed up with martial arts elements. It had plenty of both, for sure, but it wasn't action sequences or martial arts sequences that made me go "wow", not even in the least bit. The action was adequate, but the martial arts scenes were scripted and it showed on the screen.

I managed to sit through the entire movie, and was moderately entertained. At least enough to rate "Death Fighter" a mediocre five out of ten stars. However, this is hardly a movie that I will be returning to watch a second time, nor is it a movie that I would rush out to recommend people to watch.
