After three or more beers, this movie is flawless. (by dcmccants)
I don't know where to start with this cinematic masterpiece. When I first saw it a million years ago I thought it was so laughably bad that I enjoyed watching it. Then recently I had a few drinks then got the great idea of watching it again. I couldn't pull myself off of the floor from laughing so hard. Geez, the sound, video quality, acting, editing, EVERYTHING about this movie is bad. There should be a warning on the cover suggesting that viewers prepare themselves for the possibility of laughing themselves into a stupor.Anyway, this movie is freaking great. Check this movie out <more>
without hesitation. If you watch it sober, you'll laugh at it normally, but when you got a few in ya, the laughs don't stop. You hear that punk, she KNOWS whos the best!!!
One of the greatest 80s-movies ever, with a terrific soundtrack! (by BoDuke-3)
"No Retreat, No Surrender" is one of the greatest films I've ever seen. It's surely not very demanding or high-grade, but that doesn't really matter at all. It gives you such a great feeling of the 80s with all the typical clothes, sayings and especially the fantastic music. I like the story of the underdog becoming the winner. The film tells in a very simple way to never give up. It also has a pretty funny side. It is the only film known by me, with two different soundtracks. The US-version is different to the European one. I like the last one more, with the great song <more>
"Hold on to the vision" by Kevin Chalfant. It was unfortunately never available on CD or in any other way. Together with the great 80s-movies "BMX Bandits" and "Stand by me" this film is one of the most important movies of my childhood and also youth. When I saw "No Retreat, No Surrender" "Karate Tiger" in Germany for the first time, it was the reason for me to join a Karate Dojo for 4 years! I think that's it... this movie rocks!!! 80s 4ever!
No Retreat, No Surrender was a fantastic film which is one my absolute favorites. It reminds of the equally great The Karate Kid and Rocky 4 starring Sylvester Stallone. These three films came out during the mid 80`s and as we know most of the finest film was made from 84 to 90, No Retreat, No Surrender was no dissapointment. When i rented it the first time when i was 12 me and my brother watched it 7 times in one day. The film is full of comedy and moving moments and the subject of martial arts is right down my alley, all around this is an outstanding picture that has all the right elements. <more>
The fact that most of the players are unknown doesn`t make a difference, they fit right in this film.Kurt Mckinney is very fine in the lead role.
This movie changed my life... seriously! (by CaptLoogie)
The thing you must realise about "No Retreat, No Surrender" is that it is possibly the funniest movie ever made. Not the best Karate Kid-rip off, not the best Jean Claude Van Damme movie. It's nothing but comedy, pure and simple. I'm sure that's not what the writer and director had in mind when making the flick, but i can not watch this movie without almost crying with laughter.I first saw it when going through some of my friends videos. Amongst the porn and the Bond movies lay a tired VHS box with an artists rendition of Jason and Ivan the Russian. I will be honest with <more>
you I almost died when R.J. broke out with his rap it beats the hell out of anything "Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo" can offer . The characters are all so one dimensional it's beyond a joke. The lines are so badly read that it feels like the script and directing was taken over by Matt Stone and Trey Parker who i'm sure would agree with me that this film should be remembered by all generations to come as the funniest B-Movie ever made.Really what I want to say is SEE THIS MOVIE, but don't look for action or plot. You WILL be disappointed. But if you want a good laugh at the 80's expense then look no further. If you like what you see check out the two sequels. Although in my opinion the first was the best, the next two have their fair share of stolen characters and ridiculous dialog.
An all-time '80s action classic! (by cold_lazarou)
This film has long held a pride of place in my personal pantheon of classic '80s action flicks, alongside other luminaries such as "Bloodsport" and "Deadly Prey". In fact, i think a great night in with beers 'n' snacks with all three of these bad boys is long overdue - though i may well die from an overdose of pure unadulterated genius.Basic kung-fu revenge plot involves a young man called Jason although for some reason for years i remembered him as being called "Dan"... i have no idea why, unless i'd somehow conflated this with "The Karate <more>
Kid". Which seems impossible, what with this being 5000 times better! avenging the crippling of his karate sensei father the appalling acting stylings of Tim Baker, take a bow! at the hands - and indeed feet - of martial arts gangsters. The twist here is that the inevitable training montage in order to take vengeance is aided not only by bizarre break dancing Michael Jackson impersonator R.J., but by the ghost of Bruce Lee played by Kim Tae Chung himself, the not very Bruce Lee Bruce Lee from "Game of Death" !!! After a gruelling training regime involving quality '80s music and some terrifying homoeroticism with R.J., Jason / Dan takes on the high-kicking, splits-performing Jean-Claude Van Damme himself. Though whether or not JCVD is playing 'Ivan Krezinsky the Russian' or 'Carl Brezdin' depends on whether you believe the dialogue or the credits!! Either way, Jason / Dan vs. Ivan/ Carl is a true clash of the titans that fans of hokey genius cannot afford to miss!!
The last time I watched it was 20 y ago. For me It was the cult movie that gave me the willing to practice karate. It was also the first time I saw JC Vandamme on TV.So I re-watched it yesterday. OMG what a lame movie ! Really, I can't help but laughing watching the bad acting, the bad scenario, the bad filming, no really the magic wasn't there anymore. It looks like a 70's action movie parody !Karate Kid is a masterpiece if you dare comparing.But hey ! The little child I was enjoyed it. So I keep it in my hearth like my believing in Santa Claus
Classic (by solomonkain)
Before watching the movie I had in my mind that this was just going to be another dodgy movie but with a bit of van damme thrown in. How wrong. This movie truly is a classic, the cheesy music, especially the end credits brilliant montage scenes and especially the fighting itself. This isn't your traditionally badly choreographed Van Dammeesque movie but a very well done job. The fight scenes a lengthy and extremely enjoyable, and everyone in the movie can kick and punch very well. The main character Kurt McKinney Jason turns up the style later in the movie by pulling off some <more>
unbelievable training exercises, such as his two-finger one handed push ups! OK - so the acting is very ropey - but who cares! If you're looking for an enjoyable evening in and a self motivational movie - this is the one!
Revenge of the 80's: Jean Claude Van Damme, Superstar. (by Captain_Couth)
No Retreat, No Surrender 1985 was a Seasonal Films production that was filmed in the United States. Corey Yuen was the director and Hoi Meng was the co-action director. This film marked the Western debut of future superstar Jean Claude Van Damme. This was also the first of three official No Retreat, No Surrender films.A kid witnesses his dad being brutally beaten by a group of thugs and their new fighter, a big mean Soviet kick-fighter J.C.V.D. The kid does what anybody else would do if they saw their own dad nearly beaten to death, swear a blood revenge against those who put him in <more>
traction. There's one problem, the kid can't punch his way out of a paper bag and his fighting skills are virtually non-existence. What's a kid to do? Turn to a higher power! Will that be the stuff needed to beat down the mean Red fighter and avenge his father?The fight scenes are realistic looking and bone crunching. The direction is real good and the acting is okay. A Hong Kong style movie made in America. J.C.V.D. is pretty scary and mean looking in his big debut. He'll make a bigger splash in his first true success Bloodsport. If you enjoy old school kung fu movies where the son has to avenge his father with a blood oath, then this one's for you. Followed by No Retreat, No Surrender 2.
fantastic martial art flick from the eighties' (by kai-tangvik)
Just finished viewing no retreat,no surrender whom i borrowed from by good friend "Thorstein" today.The last time i watched it was approximately ten years ago on a lousy video tape,and seeing it on DVD gave me a hell of a ride.We all know that these movies lack about everything a movie lover craves,but the intensity and the choreography of the fighting is just plain awesome! I too see the similarities ti Rocky 4 with the Russian fighter etc,but remember that Ivan grabbed Jasons girl by the hair,wouldn't you step into the ring to defend your girl? Simultanously i have to say that <more>
our belgium phenomen has delivered the film-histories best side-kicks.Worth the whole movie by itself! Beside "American warrior" this is the greatest martial art movie of all time!Sorry Jet Li!And once again thanks to my dear friend Thorstein who simply adores van damme for lending me this one!
