Trivia

You may have noticed the absence of the child actor who played Don's son from the mid-point of the film. The boy was missing from production due to an Actor's Guild stipulation that he could only film 45 minutes of footage unless complimentary sweets were provided on set. Joe Hart, director, stated, "We already provide free tampons and condoms for our actors, but we draw the line at candies!" See more »

OK after a shaky start
26 February 2009 | by gridoon2020See all my reviews

"Lion Strike" aka "Ring of Fire III" begins with a friendly sparring match between Don "The Dragon" Wilson and another guy on the roof of his hospital ("what kind of doctor are you?"), which is interrupted by the escape attempt of an elderly mobster patient via helicopter. Wilson manages to stop the attempt and kill all the bad guys, but his friend also gets severely shot. Then this entire sequence is completely forgotten and never referenced again. I've rarely seen a more random and incoherent way to open a movie. If you get past the first 10 minutes, this is a fairly OK low-budget actioner. Wilson is in pretty good form, Bobbie Phillips (is it just me or does she look a bit like Angelina Jolie?) makes a charming and compatible sidekick for him (but gets only one real chance to show her moves), there are some spectacular stunts and some pretty woodsy/snowy locations. A film you can take or leave. ** out of 4.
