Very good B-Grade movie starring Steven Vincent Leigh, he is truly a good martial artist. Sophia Crawford was also good and had some good fight scenes as well, for those who aren't aware of who she is, she's a European Kickboxing Champion. Right from the beginning of the movie when the samurai warrior was surround by several opponents and started kicking their butts and slicing them with his sword I knew that this film was going to be a good movie because the fight scenes were well put together. I payed $45 dollars US for this film but was worth it in my personal opinion as I enjoy watching B-Grade martial arts movies (and collecting them) as long as they are not too stupid with the fight scenes. What I mean by that is some movies have very bad sound effects when the actor/actress might throw a kick or punch and the punch is obviously a weak one, however, the opponent goes flying...thats what I mean by stupid. Anyway, Steven shows his talent well in this movie with his acting abilities as well as his martial arts skills. The fight scenes were very good and has plenty of action.

This movie is about a young cop called Johnny who is called as back up to a shoot-out while celebrating the end of his partner's retirement day. He invites his partner to the battle for one last feeling of being a cop before turning into a civilian. Johnny and his partner are taken by surprise when they arrive at the robbery and Johnny's partner is killed. Johnny discovered that his only link to finding his partner's killer is the ancient Sword Of Honor which is wanted by an Underworld Boss because with the history of the sword it is said that whoever owns the sword can not be defeated by anyone. Johnny teams up with his partner's sister (Sophia Crawford) a martial arts instructor. Eventually, Johnny learns that he is not only up against the Las Vegas Underworld but some members from his own poilce team as well!

The thing that makes this movie worth seeing is a chance to see Charlie Vespia play the body builder wise guy. All of the other actors in the movie pale in comparison to the performance done here by one of the greatest up and comers in the film industry tragically cut short before his time. The scene in which Charlie is in the gym is the most memorable. He is fantastic and his martial arts never looked better. I am a big fan of his from days gone by and would like to also add that he was/is and always will be my idol. R.I.P. Charlie..I love you. I always knew that you would be a star someday and here you are immortalized forever online. I miss you big brother. Everyone see this movie so my brothers memory will not be forgotten. He truly was great and one of a kind. The next star in heaven. Charlie Vespia.

If you like action and nudity Sword of Honor is for you! Set in beautiful Las Vegas, this movie has plenty of both.Excellent job once again by the Tiffe brothers. Also, a lovely and powerful cameo by the always magnificent Paul Dottore.
