Interesting because of the commendable portrayal by the lead actor Sizwe Dlamini as Dark who is very serious in learning karate and plans to further his training in Japan. Unfortunately, Dark needs money to travel there and an offer to murder a person named Tiger seems a way out. Dlamini gives life to the character of Dark well, physically he is athletic and convincing enough as an exemplary karate student. He also portrayed a boxer in the film "The Boxer" and he was similarly a natural with the role. It seems that  he is a sought-after South African actor during the '80s. Some of the supporting cast are quite amusing and I'd like to think that  they are comedians who are proud of their toothless smiles. A mix of action, drama and comedy!

The film was engaging to watch and I liked the story, that of a young man named Dark who is committed to be the best in karate.  Because of his expertise though he attracts the wrong people and he was offered by a Mr. Dlamini to kill Tiger, someone from an opposing drug gang, in exchange for money that Dark needs to further his training in Japan. Dark's upright decision not to  kill someone is very admirable despite of the fact that he badly needs money.  Simply shot but with commendable acting performances, there was also some comic relief provided by Shorty, one of Mr.Dlamini's goons. This actor is almost toothless but it seems he's proud to flaunt it anyway.  Fun to watch!
