Summary: Fun Homage to Dark Side of Business
The film, like many other B-movies of the 90's, has its flaws. However, when Ng See-Yuen and Keith Strandberg team up for a movie, you are in for a treat. The film revolves around a young fighter living his dream of being a Superfighter, a professional combatant similar to professional wrestling but more involved in martial arts. As he progresses, he learns there is more to the business than just fighting and winning.
Reviewer Score: 7
The film showcases the talents of 3rd-degree black belt Brandon Gaines, who plays the dreamer turned hero. Gaines is an impressive kicker and does well in his fight scenes courtesy of Tony Leung Siu-Hung, who also helmed the film. Keith Vitali makes a good villain in Robert Sawyer, the founder of Superfights who is also a big-time crime boss. He even pays homage to Ken Lo in DRUNKEN MASTER II with some nice leg winging techniques.
Despite the rookie acting flaws and contrived cliches of B-moviedom, SUPERFIGHTS is quite fun and engaging.
