"Breathing Fire is a super cheesy martial arts films, set in the tradition of the "No Retreat No Surrender" movies. There is the similar poor acting, cheesy characters, cheap music, cheesy sound effects, and actually lots of cool looking cheesy fights. Breathing Fire though still doesn't feel as enjoyable as No Retreat No Surrender, and ends up just being rather cheesy in a bad way. The fights are not as fun and the charcaters are not as enjoyable. The only two standouts that are memorable, are of course Bolo Yeung and Jonathan Ke Quan - simply for his famous role as Short Round in Temple of Doom and his role in The Goonies.

This movie is basically inconsistent. It has an original story that actually has a bit of a complex plot for these types of movies. It is about 2 brothers - Charlie and Tony - who live together with their father (Jerry Trimble) who is secretly in the business of robbing and stealing. We know this in the beginning of the film, but they do not learn about it till much later. In the meantime, one of the men that worked for their father, decides he wants out, and in return the rest of the gang kill him and his wife, leaving an orphaned daughter. She seeks out help from a man who is actually the father's brother, and he takes her to live with the 2 brothers and their father. While the story is a bit interesting, it is filled with goofy moments throughout, as well as horrible acting that is some of the worst I ever seen. Fights are good, but in the cheesy manner, as most look very fake, but still manage to entertain.

As for Bolo Yeung's performance, his first appearance in this film is classic - dressed like an old lady while he and the rest of the gang are ready to rob a bank. He has a few fights in this movie, but most are dissapointing and weaker than in most of his films. He doesn't really get enough chances to make his presence known, but he is still fun to watch when it is his turn.

Basically and over-all supercheese-fest that is not the classic fun-filled cheese like No Retreat No Surrender. Its still fun at times, and it does have Bolo Yeung and everyone's favorite boy from the Temple of Doom who is now an older teenager. Expect a movie with no realism whatsoever."
