Good bad martial arts flick, only movie I know to feature Bolo Yeung in a dress. Non-stop fight scenes keep the awful acting to a minimal. Hilarious final scene at a kids martial arts tournament, where two teens beat each other nearly to death!

This flick blew my mind it is unreal. The Moore brothers return home from Nam with all limbs intact and an orphaned Vietbanese boy (they name him Charlie hahaha) , who grows up to be Data from The Goonies. It is worth watching for seeing Chong Li from Bloodsport in drag, plus the part where the Mammy's boy henchman breaks down is one of the funniest things, I have ever seen. The soundtrack is immense and Jerry Trimble's tan makes David Dickinson look like an Albino.

(1991) Breathing Fire

Do you know that little Chinese kid in Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom Indy adopt as Short Round, well he's older now and one of the two stars in this low budget entertaining martial arts movie. This pass is not for the storyline and the acting since it's mediocre as ever but for the well choreographed fights which one of the problems with many martial art films is that they look too fake since upon figthing no one hardly touches with one another. In this one we get to see what some of these characters can do which is obviously too far fetch in real life but at last it's full contact and without the use of any CGI or wiring.

A surprisingly good martial arts actioner with fast pace kickboxing!! Watch Bolo Yeung from BLOODSPORT and Ke Huy Quan from THE GOONIES display their martial arts prowess in this chop-socky favorite!

An absolute cinematic trainwreck/masterpiece. Not only is Breathing Fire underrated, but it might just be THE best so-bad-it's-good movie ever produced. Eat your heart out Troll 2!

I bought this movie because bolo was in it. It is pretty crappy. I skipped through most of the movie so take my criticism with a grain of salt.

Ok, so, first of all, this movie stars Short Round, you know, from Indiana Jones. (For some reason he insists on being called "Johnathon Ke Quan" in the credits of films.) This alone should be enough to get you to watch the movie.

Some may say that the plot in this movie is shallow, but, obviously, they are not looking for the deeper mysteries in the movie. Like, why does David's beard keep disappearing and reappearing, sometimes within the same fight? What is the point of all the phone books and bricks? Wouldn't those bricks just permanently destroy their legs? Why does David look like Tony Hawk?

Seriously, though, watch this movie. It has Short Round.

Amazing and absolutely kickboxing teams brothers go against their father, the mastermind behind a bank robbery. Great action and decent performances as well as Jonathan Ke Quan is really incredible in his fast-packed martial artist since Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

[font=Helvetica][font=Verdana]I don't know which is more pointless; trying to figure out which of the three directors organized which scenes or actually sitting through an hour and a half of absolute garbage. I'm not going to trash this film as far as "artistic intent" is concerned, but more on the fundamental levels of storyline, character and subplots that are forced upon us. There is no way I would believe this film was carefully planned out. If it was, it wouldn't be this horrible, it'd just be bad.[/font][/font]
