Tommy Lee + kidnapped child = loads of dead bad guys

Is there a Best of the Best 3.5? I'm just asking because in this film Tommy is a widower with a six year old kid and last time we saw Tommy he was young free and single. He's also got his Tae Kwon Do school back after telling folk in the last film he gave it up. Hey-ho. Let's not over think things.

Who's gonna mess with Tommy's family this time and then act all surprised when his cheesy feet start zooming towards their faces, knocking their teeth out and stuff? This time you've got the bad guy from Saw, some other guy, and Killian's henchman from The Running Man out to get a disc from Tommy that he didn't even know he had, as some girl slipped it into his pocket shortly before being machine gunned to death by a bad guy from some counterfeiting gang.

This gang steal and entire truck at the start of the film and waste loads of cops so we know they mean business. They also prove to be the biggest bunch of morons Tommy's had to face, as they do the one thing that Tommy hates the most – That's right, they target his family.

Blah blah fight scenes, blah blah threats. Tommy kicks his way through a lot of bad guys in this one, but I reckon we spend a bit too much time with the bad guys in-fighting rather that Tommy jumping all over their heads. He's also managed to go up against bad guys that take themselves out! Not only are they all threatening and shooting each other, one of them manages to kill more bad guys than Tommy.

Seriously, there's loads of bad guys chasing Tommy at one end of a tunnel on motorbikes, and this one guy at the other end of the tunnel grabs a truck and speeds towards them, then misses Tommy, then hits the rest of the bad guys causing a huge explosion that takes out a helicopter too. All Tommy had to do was get out of the way.

Phillip Rhee also directs this one too, and it'll do for a quick action fix. The second film's the best one in the series by my reckoning. I think there was plans for a fifth one where Tommy didn't even bother getting out of bed while the bad guys just took care of themselves.

better than 3, and highly underrated. good movie

I was put of by all the negative reviews for this movie, but in the end I said what the hell the previous 3 were all very good, with 1 and 2 being personal favourites. to my surprise, part 4 although a different theme than 1 and 2, still maintains the spirit of the series somewhat, from the acting to the action and even the music. As a fan of best of the best, this movie was highly entertaining. its somewhat in the mold of die-hard type action, however nobody does fight scenes quite like Phillip Rhee (still known as Tommy Lee in the movie), and so calling it an imitator is misleading since rhee brings so much more to the action due to his martial arts background. In these type of movies its never about the plot, but how the overall movie flows and entertains. tommy lee is a likable hero as usual, and the supporting cast are as well. the bad guys are even very entertaining to watch. while this movie can never have the budget of die hard, in my opinion it has more likable and realistic characters. If your a fan please ignore the haters, just don't expect this to be anything like 1 and 2 or as good. its better than 3, which itself was good and underrated in my opinion. I can understand fans complaints that this movie has nothing to do with the best of the best universe, that is true, however its still a movie that stands on its own, and provides fans of Phillip Rhee yet another good action movie with heart. Im glad I watched it, and sad that it ended here.

plot line better, acting worse

Best of the Best 4, is better than 3, but just barely. Basically, I say this because part 4 doesn't contradict parts 1/2 (like 3 does), (ie. their is no reference to Tommy Lee having siblings).

Anyway, I liked the Russian plot line of the story, and especially Sven Ole-Thorsen's bit part as Boris. Aside from that though and a few fighting scenes, the movie is nothing special. The limited budget is also very noticeable (especially in the airplane blow-up scene).

Also, part 4 does not really have a moral or say anything like part 3 did, there are a couple of more better known actors (Hudson, Thorsen) in part 4, but alas nothing like the beginning of the series (and even these characters have very small roles).

Alas, it seems Best of the Best is the Rhee show, and to be truthful, he cannot carry a movie.

Saw on tape, Rating:4
