"Listen, will you do this right? Clean? Like a cop in the 20th century, not some samurai warrior? We're gonna nail this guy. And when we get done...we're gonna go eat fish off those naked chicks!!" Superficially, there's nothing about Showdown in Little Tokyo to get excited about. It comes across as a typical, silly, by-the-numbers action picture. Dig deeper, though, and you will find Showdown in ... read more

Detective Chris Kenner was orphaned as a child as his father was in the service and was killed and lived in Japan. Now he is on the trail of ruthless Yakuza leader named Yoshido, who helped establish a small Japanese area in Los Angeles and is now running a drug ring disguised as a brewery. However, Kenner must team up with a Japanese-American detective named Johnny Murata, and he also must protect a witness named Minako who would testify against Yoshido. But what Kenner will soon discover that he will be in a lot more than what he bargained for.

"February 12th Directed by: Mark L. Lester This is the good stuff. I didn't expect it to be, I had very low expectations, I didn't think Lundgren would be a good lead, and also this is from 1991, one year after the cutoff date of these movies having any chance of being good, but it prevails. I feel like we don't have these kind of characters anymore, Lundgren is endlessly cool to the point that it takes me out of the movie, in a good way. When you have lines of dialogue that explain your lead h"

"7.12. Kun töissä on rankkaa, niin rentoutuakseen sitä kaipaa ysärin rivipahikselta näyttävää Dolph Lundgrenia, tämän penistä kuvailevaa Brandon Leetä ja ekstrahapanta Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawaa. Mark L. Lesterin 75-minuuttinen ysäritoiminnan helmi ei sisällä paljoakaan välikohtauksia, vaan lähes koko ajan ruudulla nähdään menevää äksöniä tai päähenkilöiden välistä one-liner -taistelua. Aasiaeksotiikan vuoksi rivipahiksina saadaan James Lew'n ja Al Leongin yhdistelmä"

"First viewing - Aug. 15th Lee family double feature I figured it only made sense to chase a film about Bruce with a film starring his son. For whatever reason Showdown in Little Tokyo was overlooked by me in my youth, which is odd because watching it now it's exactly the kind of thing I would've loved as a teenager. Watching Brandon and Dolph fight their way through Yakuza while exchanging one-liners is a treat. It's nothing great, but it's not trying to be either. It's just a big, dumb, silly "
