“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Night of the Warrior (1991)
This is probably the least interesting Lorenzo Lamas martial arts film. He plays a guy who runs a strip club and is forced back into the world of kickfighting against his will. There's one decent fight at the start and a mediocre one at the end with a guy who I've seen in a lot of these things over the years (but who I am not looking up). The film is overly-stylish and is more a moody thriller than a martial arts film, which is probably why few have seen it and those who did were disappointed. It's not terrible - though there is a scene that inter-cuts a Lorenzo sex scene with shots of his mother being murdered - but there's nothing to recommend it, either.
