Bloodmatch ★ 1991 (R)

A whodunit, martial-arts-style: the “sleuth” kidnaps all the suspects in a corruption case and kickboxes each to death until somebody confesses. Not exactly Agatha Christie, and artsy camera moves fail to exploit the fancy footwork. 85m/C VHS . Thom Mathews, Michel Qissi, Benny “The Jet” Urquidez, Marianne Taylor, Hope Marie Carlton, Dale Jacoby, Thunder Wolf, Vincent Klyn, Peter “Sugarfoot” Cunningham, Hector Pena; D: Albert Pyun; W: K. Mannah; M: Tony Riparetti.
