JOE LEWIS’ LAST MOVIE RELEASED ON DVD, VOD
Full-contact karate champ and Black Belt Hall of Famer Joe Lewis may have passed away in 2012, but his fans around the world are just now being treated to an easily accessible version of the action flick that’s being hailed as his last film. The title is Death Fighter, and the co-stars include the top names in the biz: Don Wilson (The Martial Arts Kid, Paying Mr. McGetty), Cynthia Rothrock (China O’Brien, Lady Dragon) and Matt Mullins (Straight Outta Compton, Divergent). Death Fighter follows a young American cop with a bounty on his head. He teams up with a rage-filled ex-military outcast to avenge his mentor’s death. The mission gets dangerous when the cop finds himself in a showdown with one of the most notorious and ruthless criminals in the country. “The revenge plot, nonstop action and kick-ass authentic fight scenes in Death Fighter give a modern spin on classic martial arts films,” said Lise Romanoff, managing director/CEO of Vision Films. “Fans of the genre won’t want to miss this one.” Death Fighter was written by Lawrence Riggins and directed by Toby Russell. Kazu Patrick Tang served as action director and stunt coordinator. Lewis starred in several motion pictures prior to this one, including Jaguar Lives! and Force: Five. Death Fighter is available on DVD and video on demand.
The Death Fighter cast includes Don Wilson, Cynthia Rothrock and Matt Mullins.
