A dumb flick, cobbled together with cliced plot elements from popular films. There are frequent cameo moments from Chuck Norris in day dream moments that are tiresome and unnecessary. The last third of the movie is a sped up rip-off of Karate Kid and Norris shows up in the flesh to basically fight the kid's battle for him. A complete waste.

A blantant karate kid rip off, to a extreme degree everything in the Karate kid is basically copied in this movie. The only difference is the Chuck Norris as some sort of fantatstical person is strange in the later on in the film especially when he mystically dissapears, and that gets some unintentional laughs. The film though is not memorable and the karate kid is just better.
