"White Tiger is a well made B action movie in terms of picture quality, sound quality, and character convincement. The fights are more realistic than flashy & lengthy, but there are a lot of them and they are done very well. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (Mortal Kombat, Showdown In Little Tokyo, Kickboxer 2) has an excellent performnce at being the films dirty bad guy, Victor Chow. Ron Yuan (Ring of Fire, To Be The Best, Bloodfist V), though with not too much screen time, makes his presence known as Severin, Victor's right hand man. Combined these guys are great villains. Gary Daniels does a great performace too as the cop, Mike Ryan.
The plot is just another story about revenge. Mike's partner John is murdered by Victor Chow, leaving behind a wife and son. Mike goes to great lengths to find Chow, and the exciting part about this story of revenge is that he trusts the wrong people at various times.
Perhaps the best thing about White Tiger is the action. There are numerous amounts of fights scenes, and all look great. You can tell these are real fights, and look convincingly so. Gary Daniels gets a good fight against Ron Yuan, and a great final fight against Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa. No fight lasts more than 2 minutes, but I never felt disspointed by that at all - its not the kind of movie that requires long fights to be good. In fact, it would most likely feel out of place.
White Tiger was an unknown title to me at first, but now sits at the heart of my favorite martial art films, and probably the best Gary Daniels film. Very solid B movie that should not dissapoint at all."

"This is one of Gary Daniels best martial arts pictures. The action/fight scenes are well done and fun to watch. I have always enjoyed the many films Gary has starred in. Hope he continues to make these films."
