Lorenzo Lamas stars as John Kang, a half Asian cop who takes on the yakuza when said boss (James Lew) marks Kang and his cop buddies and their families for death, along the way Kang finds out that their pasts maybe intertwined. Let's be honest here. Lorenzo Lamas just isn't up to the same standard as say a Jackie Chan or Jean-Claude Van Damme (or even Michael Dudikoff, for that matter) So this means that production values will be lower, this means scripts will be worse and directing will be done in the most routine and workmanlike manner. Let's also be honest and admit that if you want to see a plot like this play out, in which martial artists use kung fu and gunfire to take on the martial arts trained mobsters, you're better off renting The Street Fighter (with Sonny Chiba),Showdown In Little Tokyo, The Punisher (1989), Steele Justice,The Perfect Weapon, The Hunted and Red Sun Rising those films have personality, imaginative action sequences and far more charismatic protagonists. Indeed the only redeeming quality to this otherwise deadly dull dud, is the swagger shown by long time screen heavy James Lew, who deserves to be the star of his own movie, yet gets stuck in awful movies like this one. The action sequences are passable, but as usual the script makes no dramatic sense, character development is zilch and the movie lumbers from mediocre action sequence to the next. Better production values than usual for a Lorenzo Lamas programmer, but unlike say Snake Eater 1-2, this one doesn't have any of that Bad Movie charm.
