On the surface Showdown in Little Tokyo look like a typical 90s action schlock that you will rent from the video store just because it got both Dolph Lundgren and Brandon Lee on the cover but for me, since the first day I saw it I legit think Showdown in Little Tokyo is the coolest action movie ever and after rewatched it a couple of times for the past few years I come to a conclusion that this movie is, in fact, a timeless action movie and deserve so much more attention than it already is. Yes, the plot is the most by the books of how to write any cheesy action movie ever and the runtime is super short but who cares about that when we got Dolph on full "I must avenge the death of my family" mode while Brandon took the fish out of water role in their prime kicking yakuza ass non stop with an over the top death of the main villain played by Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa for a climax ? I don't know why I got this unconditional love for Showdown in Little Tokyo but I do know that I will continue to love this movie for a long time
