Welcome to the future. Civilization has been obliterated by natural catastrophes and global economic collapse. In the rotting skeletons of once great cities, the remnants of mankind struggle to survive under the brutal reign of vicious warlords who rule by fear and the power of the fist. The only hope for a courageous band of street urchins is the brave fighter Jonas, the last surviving keeper of the secrets of an ancient martial arts dynasty. Jonas must challenge the heartless Bosco in a fight for freedom or death ... only then can he become master of mankind's destiny. Check out trailers and more at the official site: www.kampfansage.com. Fans of Ong Bak: Thai Warrior, The Transporter and District B13 will love The Challenge! Unbelievable Euro-Action!!

There's a reason German cinema isn't widely viewed outside of Deutschland: in Germany, we love our talk shows, cop dramas, soap operas, and MTV knockoff stations, but the country isn't too great about producing feature films of global interest. Every once in a while, there'll be recognition for something like Downfall, but that's the exception. Germany is no Hollywood, and a few years ago, it was almost impossible to imagine the making of a German martial arts movie. Then Mathis Landwehr came about and gave Tony Jaa reason to fear his competition. Joining the likes of Scott Adkins, Marco Zaror, and Matt Mullins as among the new breed of aspiring kung fu stars, Landwehr is the perfect man to put Germany on the map as a worthy contributor to the action genre. Where low-budget karate fare is concerned, "Challenge" (aka "Der letzte Schüler") stands among the best of 'em.

The story: in the near future, a new order arises in Germany (and presumably all Europe) that sees the government dismantled and modern weaponry rendered obsolete. In this new world, the evil pupil of one of the last masters of the fighting arts kills the teacher of Jonas Klingenberg (Landwehr) in scorn - not considering that the student will return to lead a civil uprising against him and his storm trooper campaign.

In actuality, this is as much a vehicle for fellow martial artists Volkram Zschiesche and villain Christian Monz as it is for Landwehr: the trio of them cause for some of the most memorable fights I have ever seen that don't involve wires.

This review is for the Amazon VOD rental of this film. This is a fairly
good German martial arts movie. Not much of a story but the fight scenes
are all nicely done. I would say hardcore martial arts fans would get a
kick out of this flick. This film is in German with English subtitles.
I would also like to say that Zora Holt is one beautiful woman and I would
have enjoyed seeing more of her in this movie.

My guilty pleasure. Bad acting and really low budget type of movie, but non-the less fun. I like it

Okay, the fight scenes are more or less okay but the storyline of this movie is pretty worthless. You might as well look up some decent fight scenes on youtube since they are for free.
