Audience Reviews for Best of the Best

  • Jun 09, 2010
    A film (like American Ninja) that my dad loved and I discovered it through him. Every cliche in the book is here but that's what audiences wanted in the 80's and it looks like the trend might be coming back (just witness The Expendables). There is nothing here you haven't seen before but it's all done with it's tongue firmly in it's cheek (although Eric Roberts looks like he's giving his all) and the fight contest at the end is great. Funniest bit: watching fat old Chris Penn try and keep up with his team-mates as they jog around the football pitch. Hilarious!

    Maaan, James Earl Jones is a total DICK in this movie. I mean, geez, Eric Robert's kid gets run over and Vader makes him choose between being a good father and staying on the team? What's up with that? That's some hardcore coaching right there. Luckily Eric Roberts is the best around and won't let anybody keep him down. He gets back on the horse and rides that stallion all over the Korean team's ass. This movie is figuratively bursting at the seams with explosive action! Usually these kinds of films try to bore us with a plot of some kind. Best of the Best removes the filler and gives us all the montage we could ever wish for. Dislocated shoulder? F that. "Pop it! Pop it!"

    A team is not a team if you don't give a damn about each other.

    I really enjoyed "Best of the Best" but I did not think it was that great. The fights were really good but the story was not that good. Overall its a very watchable movie with great fight scenes.
