Synopsis


No Retreat, No Surrender
This film is a kind of David meets Goliath story told in martial arts terms. Young Jason Stillwell (Kurt McKinney) moves with his parents to Seattle, where local bullies harass them without mercy. Jason's father Tom (Tim Baker) does not believe in violence, so the family takes it on the chin. One day Jason enrolls in a martial arts class and quietly rises in rank to be a major contender. His mettle is tested in an international match against Ivan, a Russian champion (Jean-Claude Van Damme), expanding the "enemy" beyond Seattle's borders. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

    I don't know why so many people think this movie was so great spoiler alert the only time you see John Claude Van Damme is at the beginning and at the end and some teenager gets trained by the ghost of Bruce Lee. 3/4 of it was just stupid 80s hijinks and probably Van Damme's second worst movie.
