Have anybody watched this BOBBY KIM film directed by Ed Warnick?

A long time ago. It's the one where Bobby Kim looks like he's Charles Bronson's long lost twin, right?

If I remember correctly, Bobby Kim wasn't too impressive in this flick, which is a typical revenge movie, right? The choreography was mainly about showing roundhouse kicks. The impression I was left with, was seeing an aged and none too fast Chuck Norris dressed up as Charles Bronson. Did Bobby Kim speak at all in this movie BTW?

[Quote=Death Kick Kung Fu]Bobby Kim is really a explosive kicker IMO......I cant imagine him in a movie with Superfoot Wallace...or Chuck Norris...such an odd combination.[/Quote]

No argument there from me, but in this movie the action just wasn't directed very well. And (again, if I remember correctly) the fight with Superfoot wasn't everything it could have been. Still, who's complaining? ;) I also remember enjoying the movie.

I havent got or watched it mortimer so I would not know. But I thought the cast looked kind of interesting for it though.

It's worth a watch, to be sure. It's solid enough, but it doesn't really stand out (then again, Bobby Kim in the Wild West does kinda stand out).
