Review:

            This film is action-packed all the way to the end. Of course there is not a lot of good plot-to be expected- but the fight scenes more than make up for it. I love that the scenes seemed so real and not like it was during a rehearsal or a WWE match with fake punches and kicks or background sounds of the punches and kicks. I saw the preview one time and that was an hour before the showing in theaters and I had to see it. I was completely entertained with the limited amount of talking and the maximum amount of brutal hand-to-hand combat. I haven’t seen a good foreign flick since Chocolate and Ip Man. All in all, I will definitely watch this film again and I highly recommend it. Four Stars.
