Storyline

St. Jude Square is a neighborhood living in fear and despair. The dueling gangs of local kingpins Dash and Antuan terrorize the streets and the citizens live without a shred of hope... until mysterious stranger Ryan Hong (Cung Le) arrives in town. He begins to play one gang against the other using his unparalleled martial arts skills, and by calling on the teachings of his brilliant mentor Tiano (Jean-Claude Van Damme) to find the strength to battle back. However, just as he begins to bring the community under control, Hong is confronted by Mr. V, the town's ruthless and corrupt police chief. At first Mr. V is impressed by Hong's skill, but soon sees Hong as a threat to his regime, and the two warriors are locked in a head-to-head battle, pitting the fear and corruption of Mr. V's regime versus the new beginning Hong represents for the people of St. Jude Square.

Too much drama, not done too well. Needed more action!
13 June 2015 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

Like everyone who most likely saw this flick, I saw it cause Jean Cluade Van Damme was on the cover of the DVD, but when I saw him at the end of the list of cast, I knew right then he wasn't the main attraction.

But he was the best part of the movie. Jean Claude has some pretty good scenes as a master marshal artist, who teaches his cell mate how to kick ass and take names. Peter Weller was also impressive in the movie as the bad guy. It's too bad Van Damme was not the protagonist.

Cung Le played the protagonist, an ex-con trying to make his life right. The guy can fight really well, no problem there, but he does not have the personality needed to lead a movie.

the movie reminds me of Blood & Bone in story arch, but Michael Jai White is the perfect combo of action and action.

Seen better.
