High kicks and pretty broads. What it not to like?

Well… next to no plot for starters. I knew not to expect much from the start, but there is almost nothing in here. Main characters are invited to a tournament. Something is fishy about the whole thing. The evil guy is beaten. Everyone lives happily ever after. That really is all there is!

The acting is very poor, but again that was expected. These actors were chosen for their looks combined with their athletic abilities. They do look nice (especially Sarah Carter in my opinion) but maybe a bit too much on the bimbo side.

What I did expect to be above average was the martial arts, but here I was let down. They do have a few fights, but none of them are any good. They are all nothing but Hollywood theatrics and very little convincing. That is a shame.

You should only watch this movie, if you have a crush on any of the girls or if you are a fan of poor martial arts movies.
