"Ok this is movie has a bit of drama with martial arts which is cool but with a little more work on the storyline this movie could have been a lot better. I expected more from Joon B Kim after watching him in Street Soldiers with Jun Chong but I guess he didn't have the same fight chereographer which would have made the difference although I still think he is a good martial artist.
Erik Estrada stars in this gripping drama where one young teenager is forced to use his martial arts skills in a daily to daily basis, agonizing his struggle to survive! For Paul (Joon B Kim), an asian immigrant, America has not proved to be the 'land of opportunity' but rather a deadly nightmare! His father (Master Hee Il Cho) is crippled in a robbery at his family's convienient store and becomes an abusive drunk and his mother runs off after putting up with enough abuse and marries a stranger...an American! (Erik Estrada). Although he tries to fit in, Paul is always being bullied by the local gang wherever he goes. Alone, rebellious and angry he is forced to fight. With his martial arts skills, he wages a war against his enemies - a war that results in an explosive battle with the leader of the gang ... the only son of the man his mother has married!
Good fight scenes with a bit of reality to them, bad acting but is not unnatural for a B-movie."
