The classic martial arts movie of 90s has just turned 21 years. Mostly known as Karate Tiger 3, this movie has original name of No Retreat No Surrender 3 Blood Brothers and tells a story of two feuding brothers (one a policeman, the other a martial arts expert) of different political views, who join forces to avenge the death of their father, a retired agent, killed by the mafia.
Film produced by famous Hong Kong producer Ng See-Yuen Ng and author of many martial arts movies Keith W. Strandberg. No Retreat No Surrender 3 like Kickboxer 2 The Road Back is another classic action movie of 90s.
No Retreat No Surrender 3 Plot: After their CIA agent father is killed, brothers Casey (Keith Vitali) and Will Alexander (Loren Avedon) are forced to put their differences aside as they hunt for the killer. The duo get close to Franco (Rion Hunter), a ruthless terrorist leader. Will, a karate instructor, joins a rogue terrorist organization and, in order to gain Franco’s trust, is told the he must kill another CIA agent, who just happens to be his brother Casey. Together, Casey and Will fake the murder and devise a plan to get their revenge while uncovering Franco’s plans to assassinate President George H.W. Bush. This movie was released as Kick Boxer 2 in Europe. It was featured briefly in the film The King of the Kickboxers, which was also produced by Seasonal Film and, coincidentally, has been released as No Retreat, No Surrender 4 and Karate Tiger 4.
Keith Vitali‘s character (Casey Alexander) has a plaster-cast on his arm throughout the entire movie. This was because Keith actually broke his arm in the audition for the movie. The whole plaster-cast bit was used throughout the movie and explained in the beginning (he apparently hurts his arm in the Bank robbery scene). He thought the film No Retreat No Surrender 3 would be very easy and as a film fighter, only trained approximately one month for the role. Loren Avedon on the other hand took it very seriously and trained for 4-6 hours a day for 6 months. He worked very hard to get ready for the movie, as can be seen when comparing his physique in it to that of the one in No Retreat No Surrender 2 – which was filmed just a year before it.
