Editorial Reviews

Welcome to Tokyo 2009 where ruthless gangsters are pushing a new designer drug called ‘Blood Heat.’ The highly addictive narcotic is a sinister steroid that gives people super strength with a slight adverse side effect- it induces a murderous rage and drives them to kill! When Joe (Kane Kosugi), a US Navy Seal, and a Japanese detective, join forces to stop the circulation of Blood Heat, they find themselves as contestants in an extreme underground martial arts ‘fight club’ run by the Yakuza and hidden inside the infamous "Muscle Dome." When Blood Heat is pumped into the fighter’s veins they transform them into vicious, unstoppable fighting machines chemically programmed to annihilate their opponents!

This is where the film sheds a little light.

Then they have the nerve to put a make it seem justified by making you think that you should have cared about the characters.

With the news of Jet Li's intention to retire from martial arts movies, it seems that candidates to be his successor are popping up all over the world. In Thailand, Tony Jaa has shown fantastic promise with ONG BAK and TOM YUM GOONG. In France, his KISS OF THE DRAGON co-star Cyril Raffaelli strutted his stuff in the french flick BANLIEUE 13. And in Japan, Kane Kosugi, son of Ninja film legend Sho Kosugi, takes his shot a martial arts stardom with BLOOD HEAT and comes out a winner.

U.S. Navy Seal Joe Jinno (Kane Kosugi) is released from an American military detention center to the decrepit Tokyo of 2009 as an agent recruited by the Japanese government to bust drug traffickers. The most popular drug is an extrmely addictive steroid known as Blood Heat. Drug lords, hiding out in the worst parts of Tokyo, push their products while running a no-rules combat circuit where fighters, high on Blood Heat battle to the death. Joe's partner Aguri Katsuragi (Sho Aikawa) is captured by drug lord Kenji Rai (Masaya Kato)and forced to fight in the circuit against Blood Heat addict Lee Son-min (Ken Lo). He's brutally killed and Joe vows revenge. While Kenji attempts to force a scientist to manufacture more Blood Heat, Joe allies himself with Aguri's daughter and a group of orphaned children known as "Sewer Rats" and they declare war on the drug lord and his operation.

Let me just say that I, for one, am glad that drug dealers have finally made a name for a drug that can be an apprpriate action movie tittle. Kane has some of the fastest moves put on film.

He seems to always be attacking his opponents from every direction, and is able to deliver more punches in a split second than you can possibly count.

Several matches are worthy some karate oscar award.

After having the luck of being born to Hollywood's resident ninja Sho Kosugi and following him faithfully through his movies as one of the few legitimate martial arts child stars, Kane Kosugi deserved to be a proper action hero in his own right. He had done a few promising supporting parts prior to "Blood Heat", wherein he teamed up with director Ten Shimoyama (Shinobi - Heart Under Blade) and action coordinator Man-Ching Chan (Supercop) in what should easily have been one of the best action movies of the year. What it ends up being, eventually, is a big pile of meh, as well as a wasted opportunity.

The story: Joe Jinno (Kosugi, D.O.A. - Dead or Alive) is a policeman in an increasingly lawless world. When his partner (Sho Aikawa, Gozu) is presumed murdered in their attempt to slow the trafficking of an addictive performance-enhancing drug, he begins a quest of vengeance against the crime lord responsible (Masaya Kato, Brother).

"Blood Heat" is a slick 2002 Asian action movie, which should give you an idea of its presentation. I don't know what kind of a budget the filmmakers had to work with, but it allowed for a pretty nice-looking feature with apparent good production values.

Luckily though, this movie has some of the most kick ass fight scenes I have seen in a long time. Kane Kosugi is certainly someone to look out for. Ken Lo did look a bit slow, but just so you know, his and jackie's legs on the close ups are slightly sped up for DM 2. But anyway, Lo looks really really good in this. Add in a fat guy who can SERIOUSLY fight(not the blonde guy, though I am sure he is a real fighter), and a final fight that will blow you away, it adds up to a flick that is AT LEAST worth a rental(if you can). But there I go mentioning the final fight, AWESOME, until the end of it. One word to describe it------dissapointment. That is the only word to describe it. Then they have the nerve to put a make it seem justified by making you think that you should have cared about the characters. What? Am I supposed to just now believe we are in in this futuristic world even though they don't even freaking dwell on it for more than 2 total minutes? And then throw in a spectacualr final fight with a dissapointing ending. You have a 3 star movie. A cool 3 starrer, but nothing more.

Picture is widescreened and near perfection. Sound is 2-channel and good with good subtitles. The extras are plentiful with GREAT behind the scenes stuff, this actually almost caused me to give the movie a 4. IMHO-the director had no idea what he was doing. It also has a couple other cool featurettes you will like.

5/5 for the dvd release itself.

But again, this movie is dissapointing and i have to make at least one more point why. And I can't name all my problems with this movie, so I will put in the one that it is fitting to the title. Blood Heat, they didn't really exlpain this so I will have to make a guess at it. It makes you stronger?

Dissapointment.

Dissapointment big time!!!!!

Dissapointment on many levels!!!!!!!!!!

Dissapointment.
