If you are expecting to see a tiger running around in the wild, then this movie
is not for you. There is no wildlife of any kind, just your everyday, ever so
common, human bestiality on the loose.
Martial arts experts are mysteriously being killed all over New York, and all
evidence point towards a serial killer on the loose. All the bodies carry a wound
that looks like its been inflicted by tiger claws. Rookie cop Masterson (Cynthia
Rothrock), who has 15 years of experience in the field of martial arts, suspects
that the killer is a martial-arts expert himself. With the help of Richards (Jalal
Mehri), a rebel cop who has trained under one the best martial experts in the
world, she sets out to solve the case. So who's the killer and what is his motive?
This is a martial arts movie with a difference. The director has genuinely tried
to make the movie exciting by adding a serial-killer angle to it. He has met with
a bit of success, but with all the actors being karate experts, the movie fails
in the acting department. Jalal Merhi, the hero of the movie, is also the producer.
Cynthia Rothrock (Above The Law fame)
has tried her hand at acting, and doesn't play her usual action role. And remember
Bolo Yeung in Blood Sport, the huge
guy who played the villain? He does the same in this movie too.
The action sequences are well choreographed and you can't help but admire the
physical talent of the cast. The action is fast paced and the direction is good.
On the whole, the movie is worth a watch if you are an ardent martial arts fan.
