The story is entertaining from beginning to end and the most characters are actually likable.

And, frankly, that's what makes it the entertaining piece it is.

With a combination of Billy Blanks, an engrossing storyline, Billy Blanks, 80's synthesizer music and Billy Blanks, "Showdown" has easily emerged as the best movie of all time.

Radler seemed to be onto something when he made the otherwise excellent "Best of the Best" in 1989, but "Showdown" proves to be another tedious entry into an overdone genre.

Kinda like "The Karate Kid", only more intense.

It's entertaining, fast paced, and fun.

So needless to say, we enjoyed it wholeheartedly.

Truly entertaining film.

It's 3am right now, and I had the TV on just to fall asleep to.

This movie IS cheesy, bad, cliché and VERY Karate Kid'ish.

Sorry, you'll have to see the movie, it may be cheap, if you see it that way, but I enjoyed it very well for many reasons.

Then, I tune into Showdown in Little Tokyo and get Showdown, a Billy Banks film that barely could be called entertaining.

Enjoyable film.

We liked Showdown (not to be confused with the Leo Fong Showdown, 1993 though we liked that one too), it's an enjoyable film and is worth seeing.

I'd rather watch a Blanks vehicle then a Wesley Snipes big-budget borefest any day of the week.
