Editorial Reviews

While visiting his sister, Tommy Lee (Phillip Rhee) discovers that a band of ruthless white supremacists is planning to shatter the peace of a small rural community. But what these thugs don't realize is that with Tommy, they're in for the fight of their lives. With the help of an honorable sheriff (Christopher McDonald) and a headstrong young teacher (Gina Gershon), Tommy battles back against the hateful group, waging war with everything he has to protect the town. Now, there's no turning back.

Overall, the Best of the Best series is one of the most enjoyable martial arts franchises in film. It took two movies before tae kwon do bigshot Phillip Rhee was properly established as the real star of the story, and I'm pleased to say that even in the disappointing absence of Eric Roberts & co., he proves to be a solid solo action hero, not to mention a better first-time director than his more-recognized cohorts Seagal and Van Damme. It's a bit strange that he chose a story dealing with domestic racial terrorism as his first project, but while not perfect, I think it came out much better than anyone could have expected.

The story: following the events of the the second film, Tommy Lee (Rhee) rides into a rural town besieged by a neo-Nazi militia. When their violent mania takes its toll on the family of his brother-in-law (Christopher McDonald, Requiem for a Dream) and his new romantic interest (Gina Gershon, Face/Off), he uses his championship-caliber martial arts skills to fight back.

Neo-Nazism, neo-Confederatism, and white supremicism remain lingering social problems, but while they've been tackled before in drama form (e.g. American History X), I'm pretty sure that Phillip Rhee is the first filmmaker to make an action film that predominantly dealt with the issue.

I thought that this third installment was the best of the series because of its story. The action is pretty consistent with the first two movies only now its all Phillip Rhee which is great! Gina Gershon also does a nice job as the female lead. Overall, its a good martial arts movie.

I would like to say, I like this movie! I have always been the All-American type guy who likes the excitement of a good revenge film. This one is a dandy! The actors bring the characters to life and the beauty of the landscape where it was filmed is nice. Not only did i enjoy watching the film, but i was in it playing the part of a trucker in the diner scene and a neo-nazi at the stone quarry scene. I must say it was a joy working with Director/Star Phillip Rhee, the cast and crew. They were a top notch act. If you get a chance to rent or buy this movie, do so. You won't be disappointed.

This movie is American History X meets a premium martial arts movie(Rhee rivals Van Damme and the edge probably goes to Van Damme based on the totality of what Van Damme can do with punches and kicks, but I've never seen Van Damme use low-end weapons before)--only American History X couldn't dream of being PG-13. With that being said, this movie is a keeper.

The Aryan Brotherhood cloaks a small town that Tommy(Rhee) sister's family stays in fear. There are unwritten rules about how lowly non-pure whites must conduct themselves and that whites must not help these "inferiors" or foul up The Brotherhood's business or affairs. There is their ring leader(Agent Russ in Rush Hour), who causes all kinds of trouble spreading the "message" wherever he treads. His goons also pollute the town on missions, either by violence or rhetoric. This quasileader for all intents and purposes is the leader, but when confronted and with the help of his most trusted goon makes it official. Tommy's bro-in-law is the local sheriff who'd rather do things by the book, even though thugs and goons never do. That's the problem with law enforcement in the town. Nothing ever gets done and they are allowed to run unchecked. Two events bring about the ire of Tommy and his bro-in-law enough to take action: Luther's preacher father(black and well respected member of town life) is murdered and Tommy's sister is attacked. When this happens, they work together to infiltrate the organization and destroy it. Tommy handles the martial arts and ninja espionage and his bro-in-law covers him with a shotgun. A warrior battle eventually ensues between Tommy and the head of the Brotherhood both to end its reign over the town and for the hearts of the Brotherhood.

Tommy Lee (Phillip Rhee) comes to visit his sister and finds that the town is being overrun with members of the Arian brotherhood. These Arian brothers certainly weren't expecting a Taekwondo expert to show up. Tommy and his sister's husband played by Christopher Mcdonald team up to stop the racism.

The action is decent and the story isn't too bad. I haven't seen part 2 yet, but this is not even close to being as good as part 1. The directing job is not bad and the cheesiness is at a bare minumum, but the movie just isn't that interesting. There is 1 very funny clown fight scene, but the rest of the fights are just average. The finale is pretty intense with some good vehicle stunts and a bunch of shootouts. The final fight is OK for an American movie, but you probably won't be blown away by it.

2.5/5

If you like this movie, then you might as well get the Dimension Video 2-pack that has Best of the Best part 4 on it.
