Someone mentioned this to me in passing, I had never heard of Michael Jai White before so was dubious at first, but as soon as the fights start I was seriously impressed.
Although the plot isnt great, and there's a very annoying supporting character (his fight co-ordinator type guy) everything else is top notch. Great acting from everyone (apart from aforementioned person) especially Eamonn Walker who is distubingly convincing as a complete psychopath and White's nemesis.
The fight scenes are something rare in martial arts films, they actually look like real fights, which considering White has 7 black belts in various styles is not suprising; but many directors and fight choreographers make the mistake of overdoing the acrobatic moves and impossible outside a movie type moves which may look good but detracts from a serious film. The fights in this film are extremely well done and not too over the top, which makes them doubly impressive. The final one is a joy to watch.
Oh yeah, also see Black Dynamite, very very funny.
