The movie once known as White Tiger, now titled Death Fighter, has seen a long and winding road to release. I say this primarily because the film represents the last appearance by Joe Lewis, Karate Champion, and friend of Bruce Lee, before his untimely death… in 2012!
Reportedly, filming on Death Fighter wrapped shortly before Lewis’ passing, but various production lawsuits and the lack of a distributor kept the film on the shelf for years and years. Fortunately for fans of martial arts, Death Fighter 2017.
any behind-the-scenes strife doesn’t show in the finished product: I’m happy to report Death Fighter is an appreciable throwback to the action movies of old, pitched somewhere between classic Hong Kong martial arts cinema and Cannon Video guilty pleasures like American Ninja or Delta Force.
Death Fighter 2017 Plot:-
When an American cop witness his mentor’s murder in a trade deal gone wrong, he finds himself on the wrong side of the law in Thailand. But despite the bounty on his head and pressure to leave the country.
he teams up with an ex-military mercenary out to settle a score of his own to bring the killers to justice. Their quest for vengeance brings them face-to-face with a band of notorious criminals who vow to take them down if the jungle’s natural elements don’t kill them first.
As the story opens, FBI Agent Michael Turner (played by Matt Mullins of Blood and Bone and Mortal Kombat: Legacy fame) is on vacation with his girlfriend in Bangkok, Thailand. Only, his girlfriend can’t get his attention to save her life.
That’s because Michael’s ulterior motive for the trip is to help his longtime mentor at the FBI, portrayed by Joe Lewis, track down a notorious gold smuggler and human trafficker named Draco, who operates somewhere on the Thai/Burmese border.
It’s barely ten minutes into the movie before Matt Mullins and Joe Lewis raid one of Draco’s shady warehouse dealings, with Mullins facing off – ever so briefly – against martial arts veteran, Cynthia Rothrock and newcomer Jawed El Berni (Ninja: Shadow of a Tear, The Viral Factor).
Even Joe Lewis gets in a few licks – I should mention here his character is not in the movie for very long, Death Fighter 2017 but I have a feeling his loyal followers will be pleased to see him in action just the same.
After Mullins finds himself temporarily defeated and no closer to stopping Draco, a local police chief puts him in touch with Don ‘The Dragon’ Wilson’s Bobby Pau, an ex-Special Forces member turned mercenary and alcoholic. Please See More Information…………..
Death Fighter 2017 Review:-
The final film to feature the late Joe Lewis (Jaguar Lives, Force Five) who was – FYI – one of only 5 men to ever defeat Chuck Norris in combat, Death Fighter is headlined by Matt Mullins (Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight, Mortal Kombat: Legacy) as a young American cop who witnesses his mentor’s.
murder in a trade deal gone wrong and finds himself on the wrong side of the law in Thailand. With a bounty on his head, he teams up with a mercenary (Wilson), out to settle a score of his own, to avenge his slain mentor’s death.
His mission turns dangerous when he finds himself battling in a head-to-head showdown with one of the most notorious and ruthless criminals, Death Fighter 2017 in the country deep in the heart of the Thai jungle…
The first thing you’ll be asking yourself a few minutes into Death Fighter is whether this is 2017 or the 90s? No. Seriously. Featuring not only Don ‘The Dragon’ Wilson and Cynthia Rothrock, two heavy-hitters of the DTV action era, in front of the camera; the film comes from director Toby Russell.
he of Eastern Heroes fame and assistant director on the underrated Death Cage, aka Bloodfist 2 here in the UK. Russell is probably best known for directing Cinema of Vengeance and Top Fighter – two martial arts documentaries.
that have been perennial VHS/DVD favorites since the mid-90s when the first debuted (tell me you don’t own at least one “Martial Arts” DVD compilation, from the now-defunct label Prism, that features either or both docs.
How best to describe the film? How about PM Entertainment meets Cannon Films? Because that’s certainly the feel here. You have the kinds of stars, fights, and stuntwork seen in PM’s oeuvre and the gritty, sweaty, foreign-set locales that Cannon used to love slapping Chuck Norris in!
