Good Movie, hot princess
on March 2, 2003
this is a good movie. I'm a Dolph Lundgren fan, and it's nice to see Dolph back in action against his old enemy (remember Showdown in Little Tokyo with Brandon Lee? Same villan.). It made the movie special just to see the old Japanese villan again. There's a good story and some violent action in this one, also. The part of the movie that I enjoyed the most was the love interest between Dolph and the princess. Because Dolph is such a masculine guy, it's believable that any woman would fall for him, and the princess is definitely the hottest lady he has shot a picture with since Tia Carrera in 'Showdown in Little Tokyo'. I'm a little disappointed that the relationship with them was treated in a [rated PG way]. This is a Dolph Lundgren film! In his old films the babes always stripped down! [...]
This is why I'm disappointed there was less sexuality in this movie, especially with Rachel Shane as the princess. Her body is covered up the whole time.
The princess likes to stick fight at local bars in this movie and that isn't believable. She's not even breathing hard after the fights, and she pushed Dolph to the limit in a stick fight. That was going a bit too far. Women doing men things.
