  • Classic Van Damme. Fighting, fighting and more fighting.
  • Only those of us that grew up in the golden-era can appreciate how awesome this film was at the time. One of those films your older brother would manage to get VHS copy of, you'd sit down without the parents knowing and watch in amazement!
  • Bolo Yeung was a seriously tough bad guy!
  • Maybe the the best tournament martial arts movie of all time.
In tribute to his Ninja teacher, defence agent Frank Dux takes unauthorised leave and competes in the Kumite, a freestyle martial arts Olympiad held secretly every five years in Hong Kong. As the bloody competition commences his colleagues try to stop him from taking part, and Dux finds himself facing formidable opponents both in and out of the brutal bloodsport arena....
