Best of the Best tells the tale of 5 men who are selected as members of the U.S. National Karate Team, then they must live and train together as a team. Eventually they face off with the current world championship team, the Koreans.
The cheese factor is a bit high on this film, but it is very fun to watch. The cast includes Eric Roberts as the lead, Chris Penn, Phillip Rhee and the Karate U.S. Team coach is played by the one and only James Earl Jones! This was when Eric Roberts was at his best and in his best shape. Also, he supports one of the best mullets I’ve ever seen in a movie!!!
The Karate training and fight matches are well done and fun to watch. The ending has an honorable man tear moment. Check it out!!!
