Richard Norton and Cynthia Rothrock co-starred in movies before
"Rage and Honor", such as Samo Hung's "Millionaire's Express",
but "Rage" established the charismatic pair as the Bogie and Bacall of martial arts movies. The chemistry of the two leads is
undeniable in this swiftly entertaining actioner about an Australian (Norton) set up falsely for a murder charge in L.A.
Norton's pursuit for exoneration pairs him with Rothrock in a battle against their criminal couterparts, played by Catherine Bach and Brian Thompson. Eccentric characters from the L.A. underground assist the leads in their mission, and the movie shrewdly punctuates the action-charged pace with light moments.
An actor of integrity, Norton delivers a performance with integrity as the unfairly accused Aussie. Thanks to the appeal
of both stars, "Rage and Honor" remains a rarely equaled martial
arts movie, even ten years after its initial release.

Cynthia Rothrock is a terriffic sport Tae-kwon do champion. she does know how to fight. but she refuses to show any of her skill in her movies where every move thrown is slow and impractical. The plot of this movie is unforgivingly slow. Rothrock still tries to depend on her good looks for sales dispite that her ravishing model body has aged her into a 40 year old average woman who thows attacks the same way as would an amature. I think her name would mean a lot more if she stuck to sport competitions and stoped hurting herself making awful movies.

"One major chunk of angry on that black belt" Dec 26 2010
By Mike Sehorn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"Rage & Honor" belongs to an era of generally good low-budget fare starring Cynthia Rothrock, but it's far from being among her best work. Completists will be able to purchase it secure in the knowledge that the Lady Dragon had yet to begin her cinematic descent, but aside from boasting some good production values and a strong cast, it's not anything special.

The story: when an Australian police officer (Richard Norton, Mr. Nice Guy) becomes witness to a crime of corruption, he teams up with a martial arts-practicing schoolteacher (Rothrock, Above the Law) to secure a tape of the crime from coldhearted underworld entity who orchestrated it (Brian Thompson, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation).

The above-average B-movie cast also includes Terri Treas (Alien Nation) as Thompson's cohort, Catherine Bach (The Dukes of Hazzard) as the American police captain, Toshihiro Obata (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as the former's enforcer, and Alex Datcher (Passenger 57) as the eccentric leader of a feminist girl gang. They're directed by Terence Winkless, who has the honor of having directed more episodes of "Power Rangers" than any other filmmaker and does a pretty good job of maximizing his resources and making everything look good, with the exception of a few unnecessary slow-motion shots. He also wrote the movie, and therefore receives kudos for the surprising twist between Cynthia and Brian and incorporating Norton's real-life past as an ex-"rock & roll bodyguard" into his character, but he's also dealt negative points for not following up after establishing Thompson as an artsy John Woo-type villain: save for his silly mullet, he's a pretty boring bad guy in this one.

The film's main falling point is its fights scenes, which it has eight of but only a couple which are actually worth watching. There's nothing very wrong with the choreography (highlights include Cynthia performing a somersault axe kick and turning a scorpion kick into a headscissors), but the camerawork is restrictive and unflattering towards the performers' moves. The kicking cast also includes kickboxing legend Peter Cunningham (No Retreat, No Surrender) but he has only one fight (of which he is not the star) before being knocked down a flight of stairs by a wino. The rematch between Cynthia and Richard Norton pales in comparison to their stellar bout in Magic Crystal. The single standout fight belongs to Norton and Toshihiro Obata, who have a so-so initial bout but whose rematch steals the show, with the latter performing some nifty aikido moves before throwing Norton out a window.

As a whole, the action content ought to tide over casual viewers but doesn't flatter fans of Rothrock and Norton who know what technical mastery they're capable of, and the same can be said for the movie as a whole. It's a good Cynthia Rothrock movie, despite her being regularly overshadowed by Norton's character, but as is the case with most stuff from these guys, the film's strengths are balanced out by its deficiencies to provide nothing more than an average outing from a film that had the potential to be so much more.

average film that unfortunately dissapoints in the end July 6 2007
By dominion_ruler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Rage & Honor is one of those martial arts films that keeps you guessing throughout the movie - is this good or does this stink. I felt this way every other 5 minutes, convinced it was a decently made film, only to be disspointed at some point with mostly slow pacing or really low-average fight action that stars like Cythina Rothrock and Richard Norotn could do better with. But then again, the camera angles, directing, and editing wouldn't be able to show off a good fight if one was achieved. Overall, this is an average film at best, with several little disspointments thrown in.

Perhaps the best thing about Rage & Honor is the story, which is not saying a whole lot. Richard Norton plays a cop named Preston, who is wanted for a drug deal shooting that went sour, involving other cops and the girlfriend of the movie's villain - Conrad Drago played by Brian Thompson (Lionheart, The Order, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation) A boy catches the whole act on tape, proving Preston's innocence, but the bad guys are desperate to get the tape into their hands. Kris Fairfield (Rothrock) comes to the aid of Preston, and eventually revealing her relation to Drago - which was a nice touch of originality. Unfortunately, pacing is very slow at times, and after an hour I was begging to see a good final fight already to save the movie.

There is an average amount of fight action in the film, but everything is just an average bang-em-up fight without a whoe lot of style. Brian Thomson makes a formiddable villain, but in the end I thought he was just average too. The final fight of the film begins with Rothrock against Thomson in what is a highly unenjoyable fight due to the camera zooming way in on some shots, then way out on others. The editing is bad too, making it look like pieces of kicks and punches were thrown together. Cythina has 2 decent moves, but its not enough to call this a worthy fight. Fortunately, Richard Norton gets a chance against Thompson too, but this time everyhthing is in close & slow motion, followed by a very poorly executed finish to the fight.

If not for Rothrock & Norton, this movie would bomb. They do have somewhat of a chemistry between them, which is why they have managed to appear together in other films such as the sequal to this one. Rage & Honor isn't a bad movie, its just not an exciting one. Its not overly cheesy either, except for maybe elements of the final fight. I'd watch it to see for yourself what you think, but I highly doubt a 2nd viewing would happen any time soon.

In all honesty... Jan. 15 2012
By Tabitha A. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
OK, first let me get the boring details out of the way. This movie was one of the last that Orion pictures made before they went belly up and were bought out by Sony. And it showed. Low budget sets, and a ridiculous shooting schedule coupled with the fact that is was filmed in downtown LA right after the riots, all came together to make what could have been an awesome movie only mediocre.And that's the voice of experience folks. I was an extra on this one ;D Don't believe me? OK. Watch it again, watch the crowd outside the club in the beginning. See the blonde in the army jacket? Yup! That's me LOL

But that being said, there is no discounting Rothrock and Norton for trying to make a go of a bad situation. Their acting, fighting and chemistry were all wonderful. Brian Thompson has never been one of my favorite actors ( can we talk about Mortal Combat? LOL) and his performance here is no exception. Dry, and monotone as usual. Alex Datcher was awesome as the very, um, "eclectic" leader of LA's underground. A not to miss as bad/good characters go.

All in all worth the money to add to your collection. But I would have loved to see this one get the funding it should have to make it an amazing movie.
