    Another find the film thread :D

    Its an American film of the kung fu style, the hero rescuing somebody (not sure who). The main thing I remember is the main baddies thug/henchman, he had very short cropped bleach blond hair and the final show down fight takes place in an aircraft hanger or warehouse and had some acrobatics on a scaffold or decorating/maintanace platform.

    Not a lot to go at I know but over to you guys. :thumbsup:

    Hi Graham,

    Sounds like something along the lines of "Street Fighter" or one of the "Mortal Kombat" films. Does that help at all?

    Sounds pretty similar to Drive from 1997 starring Mark Dacascos.

    Don't think there was any blonde baddies in there and the final fight scene was in a space age theme restaurant...

    Not 'Drive' I have that film so I know it's not that. I'm certain it was on tape and before DVD and as I never bought VHS films it had to have been rented for Blockbuster so it would have been one of the main franchises. Could it be one of the American Ninja series? The wife just pointed out that the main hero had a sidekick/companion throughout the film. Keep thinking guys. :)

    I'm sure the movie you're thinking off is No Retreat No Surrender 3. The end takes place in a hangar and there's a scene where a guy just leaps up some scaffolding.

    The only way I can describe this movie without being brutally honest, would be entertaining!!

    I know that it was no Oscar material, it was just one of those 'what was that dam film called' moments. I check out NRNS 3.
