3 star because i loved it when i saw it when i was 12 years. Probably a load of shit now!

Cool martial arts and Jean-Claude Van Damme's debut film that crosses between <i>The Karate Kid</i> and <i>Rocky IV</i>.

They won me with that breakdance/robo musical number. Or maybe i'm mixing this with one of the "Breakin' " movies?

Pure 80's cheese. Bruce Lee says: "Drink Diet Coke!" Yes, Sensai.
