No brain kickboxing fun

"Going into to this film knowing it was a Roger Corman production, I really didn't expect much in the realm of really high quality film making. I expected a no brain action flick with a cheesy plot and and some good fights. That is exactly what I got. Bloodfist actually turned out even a better than I expected. We get Don "The Dragon" Wilson, who obviously can't act, entering a tournament to find his brothers killer. The fights are good and entertaining and Wilson shows off his kickboxing skills. If you like cheesy action films such as the American Ninja, Kickboxer, and Bloodsport series, then give Bloodfist a whirl as you will probably like it. I am still working on watching its 7 sequels!"
IT'S JUST FUN TO WATCH THE FIGHTS

"IN THE MOLD OF ''KICKBOXER'' AND ''BLOODSPORT'', THIS KICKBOXING MOVIE IS ABOUT A YOUNG RETIRED KICKBOXER [DON ''THE DRAGON'' WILSON] WHO DECIDES TO GET BACK INTO THE SPORT TO FIND OUT WHO KILLED HIS BROTHER. THE ACTING IS SUB-PAR AND THE STORY IS VERY CLICHED, BUT THE FIGHTS JUST HAPPEN TO BE FUN TO WATCH. FEATURES A LOT OF MARTIAL ARTS CHAMPIONS FROM BACK IN THE 80S, INCLUDING A YOUNGER BILLY BLANKS. HOWEVER, THE ENDING IS QUITE SHOCKING AND I DIDN'T REALLY SEE IT COMING. AS FAR AS HIS ACTING GOES, DON ''THE DRAGON'' WILSON WAS A VERY BLAND CHOICE FOR A LEADING MAN. AND HE STILL IS TODAY. FOLLOWED BY SEVEN SEQUELS, ALL OF THEM STARRING DON ''THE DRAGON'' WILSON."
An other martial arts movie with a twist.

"Bloodfist is yes another karate movie. But Most of the cast are actual karate champs. Don " the dragon" Wilson is a six time WKA kickboxing Champ, and Billy Blanks(Tae bo) is a seven time Karate champ. True they need acting lessons but the fights are first rate."
