      Audience Member one of the better Bloodfists. Don plays such a straight up good guy that he's even nice to a child molester. probably the least martial arts in the series but makes up for it w good ole fashion racism and fun prison brawls. the prison stereotype is complete w racist wht guards & gangs determined by race(sound familiar) & wise old black men & prison rape. this movie doesn't hold back on any prison stereotype. Bloodfist is one of my favorite movie franchises. as a kid it was the only American film franchise that had a Asian lead that isn't a immigrant. Don "The Dragon" Wilson is very under appreciated & is the greatest Asian American action film star of all time. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member When filming this Richard Roundtree must have wondered where did it all go wrong. In order to take advantage of the straight the video market this sequel (although unrelated to the previous two Bloodfist flicks) sees the legend Don "The Dragon" Wilson in prison. The openign scene sees his prison buddy getting gang raped and killed, but not before Wilson takes out the leader of the gang bangers. Sadly for him he turns out to be the prisons top dog. This buts him in a difficult position as he has no ties to any gangs. The alternative is just smash up every fucker in the big house. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member The Dragon's lines are kept to a minimum as he plays a prisoner who is targeted by prison gangs after killing another prisoner in self defense. Most of the dialogue is handled by the Dragon's cell mate. The last Bloodfist to play in theatres. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member I got a feeling none of these films are gonna be more than 2 stars?? This has nothing to do with the 1st 2 movies, blatently it was filmed and they threw the bloodfist name on to make a few more quid. Its a prison movie,with a innocent man in jail fighting for his life after killing a gang boss in self defence. yep a plot thats been done many times, infact everything in this film has been done many times before. C list action all round, so again fans of that stuff will like it others will think its the worst film ever made!! Role on number 4!! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member After reading the extremely small description on the back of the box art I knew this wasn't going to be a true sequel to the glorious Bloodfist I and II. How could two kickboxing movies turn into a prison picture? My hunch was right and Bloodfist III: Forced to Fight was not originally made to be a Bloodfist film. It was filmed simply as Forced to Fight. The original trailer even portrays this title. Shortly before release Roger Corman's distribution crew decided to retitle the film Bloodfist III: Forced to Fight due to the "success" of Don Wilson's earlier Bloodfist films. This was a sloppy retitling however as the title at the end of the film still reads Forced to Fight. Sighs of millions of fans were let out since there will never be a true third chapter into the Bloodfist legacy as every sequel from here on out is unconnected except for the simple fact they all star Don "The Dragon" (hell the ninth entry doesn't even star him). The plot however has a little more substance than the previous films. Like the funny quote on the box cover, Bloodfist III is "A martial arts film that's actually about something." That quote cracks me up every time I read it. Don Wilson this times plays Jimmy Boland, a man sent to prison for killing in self-defense. You get it? He's innocent so that means we can trust his character. While there he befriends some misfits and makes enemies with some racists. Perhaps it's because Wilson looks like he has more ethnic backgrounds then even the likes of Vin Diesel. What's a hero in a prison picture without his mentor? The film goes all Shawshank as Wilson finds a mentor in the form of Shaft himself Richard Roundtree. From here on out the film has the basic premises of: fight scene, talk by mentor, fight scene, talk by mentor, etc until finally morel is learned. Also what's a prison movie without a riot? Oh yes, we also get a riot at the end. Overall I just found this sequel so cliché of other prison pictures that it didn't hold my interest. It just lacked the B-movie entertainment value of the previous pictures despite having more of a "plot", no matter how cliché it is. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member The Dragon explodes as a wrongfully imprisoned man caught in race war inside prison walls. Drags out a lot of cliches and (hard to believe) incorporates a sympathetic child-molester. Certainly won't be thought of amongst the best of prison films but did gross an impressive $35,000 at the box office. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
