[Case watches Taj and Creech punch bags]
Case Walker: Okay, stop. Gloves off.
[Taj and Creech take off their gloves]
Case Walker: Okay, question. Why do you wrap your hands in boxing and MMA?
Creech: So you don't sprain your wrist.
Taj Mahale: Or break your hands.
Case Walker: Exactly. That's because you don't know how to punch. You don't know how to punch without hurting yourself. Not your opponent, hurting your damn self. News flash, guys. In martial arts, your hands, your feet, your elbows, your knees, even your head were used as weapons and were ...

Michael Jai White does it again !! Much better than the trailer
14 June 2016 | by destroyerwodSee all my reviews

I enjoyed a lot the first one back then, surprisingly even tough it had an Hollywood cast and was very commercial i loved it. Amber Heard... oh boy... lol. The second one came as a good surprise and i enjoyed it again a damn lot. The character of Case Walker was good but so was the other ones as well.

It was inevitable that the third movie would focus on Case, after all Michael Jai White is a huge name in the martial art style and the story of the kids from the second movie was wrapped up.

So when the trailer drop, i was a bit surprised. I mean it didn't looked as good as i had in mind for the next step in Case Walker story. But after having seen the movie, i do feel the movie is a lot better than the trailer. By a lot. Good action, solid character development, the story is engaging even tough a bit less personal than in previous movies. Non the less Michael Jai White make it work super great. The only thing that people may have a grip with, just like i do, is that the movie lacks a great antagonist. The battle is not personal on that level. I don't want to go into a spoiler review so i will not say more, but lets just say that the focus in clearly on the main characters and there relationship together. He does work very good tough.

In the end i had a ton of fun with that movie, its movies like that i am waiting for and i welcome so much the release once in a while. Its like 90s kickboxing movies goodness but at the same time with better direction, better acting, betting production value as a whole.

I do not know the budget for this movie, but for a direct to DVD (not even blu ray, at least here in Quebec) its damn impressive what they accomplished. Fans of martial art action, give it a shot for sure.
