Of all the no-name karate/kickboxing pictures produced during this era, few are as genuinely worth your while as "Final Impact." Of course, when I mean "you," I'm referring to fans of DTV action cinema who, like me, spend a lot of time trying to track down worthy little gems amidst the giant mountain of trash that accumulated during this era. If you're a cinematic snob or worship The Matrix, don't even bother with this one, which is kinda cheap but nevertheless rises against the tide of its medium and proves itself as one of the few good Lorenzo Lamas martial arts vehicles and a promising start to the film career of Michael Worth.

The story: when up-and-coming kickboxer Danny Davis (Worth, Acapulco H.E.A.T.) approaches dejected former champion Nick Taylor (Lamas, Renegade), he's disappointed to find his hero burnt out and running a dingy fight bar, but Danny's fighting spirit has what it takes to rejuvenate the aging champ, and he promises to train the boy for the world championships - failing to mention his lasting vendetta against the current champ (Jeff Langton, Lionheart) and his desire to get back at him through Danny's talents.

Okay, the story wasn't what I was talking about when I said the flick was above-average.

I was pleased to see that Final Impact was released on DVD. Upon watching this the first time, I was pleasantly surprised with this film. I wasn't expecting much because I never heard of the title, but I was glad to see Michael Worth from "To Be The Best" playing the 2nd role. Lorenzo Lamas, who usually is a lousy actor, does one of his better performances in Final Impact as the lead. There are also lots of ring fights and most of the movie takes place in Vegas.

Lorenzo Lamas plays Nick Taylor, the formal light heavyweight champion, who trains Danny Davis (Michael Worth) to beat Jake Gerard, the fighter Nick lost to in the ring years earlier. Its not a deep story but there is a surprising twist I did not expect. There are a good deal of fights throughout the movie, most in the ring and one outside in Vegas at night. The choreography is pretty well done thanks to choreographer Eric Lee (who played in Ring of Fire 1 & 2). Gerard is a lousy actor, but keeps the villain role alive with great fights in the ring. The final fight in this movie is a good 5 minutes, but I didn't like the way it ended so suddenly. There is a really cool uppercut that is executed in the fight that is awesome.

If you liked To Be The Best or Deadly Bet, Final Impact is right around the same neighborhood. Final Impact is a lot better than most of those cheesy martial art films.
