Good Action Flick

on 8/7/2008

The concept of taking the worst kids in the Miami School system and teaching them fighting to make them not as bad...is kinda cheesy...and the drug lord just happens to use Capoiera and not streetfight like every other bad guy does....super cheesy. However, the martial arts action is solid, Mark Dacascos is a truly gifted performer, and the end fight sequence is one to see over and over. All in all, it was one of the best and most original fight movies of the early 90s. Definitely worth purchase. Read More

Plot Summary
Summary Ex-Green Beret Louis Stevens returns to his old high school in Miami and takes on his toughest assignment yet: whipping a group of the school's worst juvenile delinquents into shape. Stevens, a master of the graceful, potentially lethal form of Brazilian martial art known as capoeira, decides to put the kids through a rigorous training program. The unruly youths improve by leaps and bounds as they gain self-respect and a sense of empowerment through the discipline of the sport. Using their newfound skill, the boys, with the help of Stevens, take on the vicious neighborhood gang that is terrorizing their school -- the leader of which just happens to be an expert in capoeira.
Memorable Quotes
