Movie Info

Sonny Chiba is the chopsocky star of Karate Warriors. Chiba is a self-styled crime fighter, and the film certainly gives him enough to fight. The fun begins when he takes on battalions of criminals on the streets, with nary a cop in sight. Karate Warriors should not be confused with the like-vintage Filipino film Karate Warrior. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Karate Warriors


Mercenaries, professional killers, are seeking employment with one side or the other

Two mercenaries for hire find themselves walking parallel paths. They are caught between two gangs at war for a hidden treasure of missing heroine. The two gangs hire mercenaries to fight each other. These two men, one a master samurai and one a master of karate, work together to pit the gangs against each other and try to find the heroine themselves.

"You are the dumbest son of a bitch I've ever met."

Kazuhiko Yamaguchi, director of Karate Bear Fighter, Karate Bull Fighter, Sister Street Fighter (1, 2, & 3), Delinquent Girl Boss, Tokyo Bad Girls, and Karate for Life, delivers Karate Warriors. The storyline for this picture is well delivered and wonderfully entertaining. The characters are well presented and the action scenes are first rate. The acting is perfect for the genre and the cast includes Sonny Chiba, Akane Kawasaki, and Akiko Koyama.

"I want a woman."
"They're all busy."

Karate Warriors delivers a worthwhile storyline and plot and the characters are developed and delivered so well. Chiba is outstanding in this picture. This is another in a long line of classic karate movis from Chiba and is deeper than just a martial arts picture. I strongly recommend seeing this film.

"Why aren't you at work?"
I haven't found a job I like.

Grade: A-
