When I first heard of its release, I was excited at the prospect of watching Cynthia Rothrock's first movie in almost half a decade. So what if the DVD cover looked stupid and it was directed by trashmeister David DeCoteau - it was an action movie starring the Lady Dragon, so I was bound to have a good time. Then I began watching, and before the film was half over, my happy illusion shattered. Good friggin' grief, is this a dreadful movie. This film can be marketed as an action movie the same way that the director's 1313 series can be marketed as sci-fi movies: sure, the premise deals with an action concept and there's a bit of fighting, but by and large it's just a showcase of near-naked male bodies. I'm talking just a step above softcore pornography, and that's not what I wanted to watch.

The story: a legendary manager of champions (Rothrock, Undefeatable) invites five young fighters to her villa to select her next big star - a decision she will make by observing them train, spar, and take showers.

Let me reiterate, this is not really an action movie. There are five fight scenes between the male performers, but their choreography is lackluster - lots of bouncing around and fist-tapping - and the camera is forever zooming in and out on the action. The most offense Rothrock gets in is giving some of her costars dirty looks. It's a dark day, if someone is throwing kicks in a movie Cynthia's in and it's not her... Of course, if we substitute fight scenes with scenes of the performers showing off their semi-naked forms, the movie becomes a bit more substantial.

I have always been a fan of Cynthia's movies. This one, I believe, was her worst. I know a time comes when it is difficult to perform such strenuous body movements. When that time comes, it is time to go on to something else. In this business, it's wise to plan ahead for another goal to achieve.

The film open with an 80's Miami Vice style soundtrack. Ivy (Cynthia Rothrock) invites a number of hard body young fighters to spar and train at her home which has cameras all over the place. Her goal is to pick one to manage and make a star fighter. The film consists of her walking around in the same dress looking at the guys while they exercise, spar, and shower...all the while she records stuff into her PDA. That is pretty much it until the twist in the last 10 minutes.

The acting was terrible. Josh Griego was laughably bad. The script went nowhere. The whole film is about showing off abs and packages in shorts. I will be destroying my copy, not good enough to give away.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.
