Audience Reviews for Steele Justice

Such a low budget movie. Undoubtedly has unnecessary actions and dramatic moves. And the swordplay looks like slow motion with too much stylization.


"He isn't being recruited, he's being unleased."-Police Cheif Bennet (Ronny Cox)

This dumb 80's actioneer is strictly for action junkies. Has one of my favorite evil hench men of all time, Al Leong (you know, Endo the torturer from LETHAL WEAPON).
