Wow, flashback from the childhood!
17 October 2010 | by swedzinSee all my reviews

I remember saw this as a kid, and those visuals from the film really attached to my child psychic. I thought that I never see this film again, but I was fortunate, found it on the internet and downloaded it. A mystical low budget crap film about Japanese police man hunting down a Yakuza leader and his personal bodyguard and ninjitsu expert, who is also a dark magic user. The policeman was played by the kickboxing champion Don "the dragon" Willson, which was really fine in this film, he gaved some good fights also. Terry Farrel, who played Don's American partner was also OK, a tough, strong woman with large Cadillac! A supporting characters as Mako (Don's former ninjitsu master) who was really funny in this film, somewhat a comic relief and Michael Ironside (the man with the badass voice). For the end to mention martial arts actor James Lew, who played the main villain (you know him "Best of the Best" (1989), "Lethal Weapon 4" (1997), "Mission for Justice" (1992) and others). Lew played the leading bad guy very differently here, due to his scary looks, I think that he fit just fine for the leading bad guy here, a mystical, dark ninja bodyguard and user of dark ninja magic, and when he use hypnotic powers, his eyes turns blue, maybe I am older now, but, saw the film a few months ago, I found that really scary. Good work for James Lew! Other things as script, story, forget it, it's crappy, no use there. Just turn of your brain and enjoy this dark martial arts film. Love the music too. Watch it...! If you want... :)
