Our Score
Jean-Claude Van Damme made his directorial debut with this surprisingly decent martial arts action adventure. He also stars as a small-time street criminal in 1920s New York who finds himself a stowaway on a ship headed for the South China Sea. Following an attack by pirates, Van Damme meets Lord Edgar Dobbs (Roger Moore), and ends up in the charge of a martial arts master. Soon Van Damme is entered into the "ultimate fighting match" with prize of a solid-gold dragon statue for the winner. Van Damme made a career starring in fighting tournament movies like this one, but this self-directed effort is remarkably better than his usual output.


A New York street thug is saved from life on the fringes of society by a conman, who launches him on a new career in the world of bare-knuckle fighting. Action adventure directed by and starring Jean-Claude Van Damme. With Roger Moore, James Remar, Janet Gunn, Jack McGee and Aki Aleong. Including FYI Daily.
