Movie Info

Louis Stevens' (Mark Dacascos) service as a member of an elite military unit kept him out of the country for several years. Now that he's back home in Florida, he's dismayed at what's become of his old high school. He sees that drug dealers, dispatched by local overlord Silverio (Paco Christian Prieto), sell on school grounds with little fear of getting caught. A skilled martial artist, Louis is determined to end the drug peddling, but to do so he'll probably have to duke it out with Silverio.

Critic Reviews for Only the Strong

  • The cinematography is jarring and dizzying at times; the acting mediocre.

  • Only the simple-minded will find much to cheer in this martial arts actioner, which has the queasy feel of a movie slapped together by the marketing department.

  • A paean to the Brazilian martial art of capoeira harks back to those break-dancing quickies.

    Top Critic
  • A movie that exists solely for its fight sequences and to show off its star's muscles and gymnastic grace.

    May 20, 2003
  • The film is clumsily assembled and edited, heavy on the slow-mo, and its simplistic story plays like The Kids From Fame armed with very sharp knives.

  • I expected it to be an obligatory late-summer, mindless, plotless action film. I was wrong. It's a late-summer, mindless, plotless action film with a message. I think I prefer this sorts of film when it doesn't try to preach.

    Definitely a 90s movie, no more, no less. A good action flick overall. My major problem was the way that the bad guy talked...his voice was terrible, I couldnt take him seriously, I just laughed every time he was on the screen.
