JOE LEWIS’ LAST MOVIE RE­LEASED ON DVD, VOD

Black Belt - - CONTENTS -

 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.
