To ensure the loyalty of everyone involved, Mike makes a special set of keys, so that the hiding place for the loot can only be opened if all the members are present. The bank manager, however, gets cold feet and tries to back out, so Mike and his buddies kill him and his wife. His daughter, however, gets hold of the key and runs for help to David, one of her father's old friends who also happens to be a Vietnam vet and a former comrade of Michael's. Will David be able to protect his friend's daughter?

Lovesusti The Worst Film Ever
VividSimon Simply Perfect
Hattie I didn’t really have many expectations going into the movie (good or bad), but I actually really enjoyed it. I really liked the characters and the banter between them.
Francene Odetta It's simply great fun, a winsome film and an occasionally over-the-top luxury fantasy that never flags.
Jeff Weimer I too served on that ship at the same time, except I fixed your gear. Remember when they showed the movie in the lounge? no one would leave him alone after that. I was actually fairly good friends with him at the time, and he finally opened up about making it.True, it's a terrible movie. But, Bolo Yeung. That alone takes up a lot of the lousy. Sure it's a b-movie. Bolo Yeung is the headliner, for crying out loud. If you watch it looking for top notch editing, plotting, and cinematography; well, you're looking in the wrong place. If you watch it looking for martial arts fight scenes stitched together with a few connecting scenes, then there are worse ways to spend an afternoon, aren't there?
Space_Mafune Annie, a young teenage girl who was a witness to the murder of her parents by cold-hearted bank robbers seeks out David Moore, her father's old buddy from their fighting days together in Vietnam for protection as her father had warned against going to the police. David takes her to his brother Michael's house, not realizing Michael is secretly the leader behind the bank heist and the murder of Annie's parents. Michael also has two sons, one natural and one adopted from Vietnam, who befriend Annie and eventually receive martial arts instructions from David so they can aid him in her protection.They say if you cannot say anything good, don't say anything at all. If I were to abide by that rule, I'd have very little to say with regards to this one. Jonathan Ke Quan actually does a decent job as Charlie Moore who really is the only truly likable character in the film in that's he's funny and likes to have fun making him feel more real as a character than any other person in the movie. Also the training scenes and the fights are surprisingly well executed.It's too bad that the plot is filled with gaping plot holes (the worst of which is characters disappearing from the scene for long periods of time with no adequate explanation as to their whereabouts), the rest of the acting cast is atrocious and the fights, while shot nicely, are hardly convincing in reality especially in the case of the Moore brothers showdown with Bolo Yeung, who's all but wasted here as another faceless henchman.Forgettable.
martymaster This is supposed to be a martial arts movie,but the story and fighting scenes are so bad that it just gets boring. I picked this movie up for one reason,because Bolo Yeung was in it,but it turned out that he didnt have any real fighting scenes in it,so all i can say is that this is a piece of crap. Extremely bad story and acting and the fight scenes is not more than a Karate kid look a like.
Kim2000 This movie is a real sleeping pill,it is awful. The plot isn't so very good and the script is awful. I didn't like this movie because the fighting scenes are awfuland the plot and the script sucks. The actors isn't so good. This movie is lame so i give it 2 out of 10.
