Best of the Best 3: No Turning Back Reviews
This was also Philip's directional and writing debut. And as a movie making effort, it's really not that bad. But the story is the wrong blend of dumb and serious and it's simply not the movie I wanted to see under this title. Well, at least it's not just white guys saving the black guys from other white guys, I guess it's a start for anti-racism movies that an Asian character gets to kick everybody's asses.
All in all a low point in the franchise. Not badly made, not dull enough to shut off halfway through, but not exactly the best of the best.
anyway after all that this film has every right to be dreadful, it should be but for some strange reason it really isnt that bad! maybe its me having a soft spot for phillip rhee i ignore the blatent rubbishness of the film? The plots rubbish lets be fair, racist in a small town cause havoc, luckly mr lee visiting his sister(?) so he can beat them up alot the best being dressed as a weird looking clown at a fair!great stuff/ thats the film everytime they start a bit of trouble he beats them up some more until...........
........He beats up the main baddy so much that all the racists realise the error of there ways!!!!! come on how great is that!
Look i know people will watch it and say its dreadful...but i cant i had fun with it dispite the acting being shocking in places and the plot making not much sense. I enjoyed it so sod it!!! Just wish eric roberts made a return!
Remember how in the original Best of the Best Phillip Rhee and Eric Roberts banded together to confront racism in a small southern town? Me neither. Anyway, I guess for a recycled Steven Seagal script it's not terrible or anything. I mean it's got Shooter McGavin and Gina Gershon, that's somethin'.
The acting and direction are seriously questionable but this film is obviously about fight scenes and they are entertaining enough, from the moment we see Gina Gershon's house is full of glass tables, flimsy bookcases and china filled cabinets we know we are in for a treat.
Not much else to say about this other than the ending was particularly stupid. Apparently the neo-Nazi leader is able to match the martial arts skills of Rhee and once defeated, all the other neo-Nazis step out of the way for the superior Asian man. Uh huh.
