Editorial Reviews:

Masutatsu Oyama wins the all-Japan Karate tournament and becomes well-known throughout the country, but those in the conventional karate world are resentful of his skill and try to banish him. Oyama turns a deaf ear to their claims, and keeps on training his own way.

Summary: A very serious feature.
Comment: It's funny how movie trailers can really throw off a film. If you ever seen karate bearfighter movie trailer, you will think it is a lame movie.In conclusion, it is probably the best oyama trilogy film i have ever seen.

The fight scenes in this feature is incredible. Sonny chiba fights some of the most top fighters in this film. The action fights are well directed. The backdrops in this film is spectacular. I have to always commend on sonny chiba's acting abilities. Sonny really shows the audience true emotion besides fighting.

If you have not seen this film,and dont know what it is about let me share a little note on what this film summerizes. As you know,if you have been keeping up with the series of oyama, then you know that he has a history of beating karate fighters up, and also luckly beating a live bull. The story basically kicks off when oyama decides to give up karate, and become a bouncer for a old time buddy. When things went sour, he quits and flees to the county side where he gets involved in a boys abbusive life stlye.Due to unfortunate circumstances, the young boys father gets hurt bad on the job, and has no mediacal insurance. Oyama is asked by some underground thugs to fight a live bear. If oyama wins, he receives big money and can use that money to pay the medical bill.

When oyama succesfully beats the bear, he is then given an invitation to fight a karate fighter seeking revenge on him. The karate figher's brother however was paralyze by oyama in a fight before he fleed to the country.

The last fight is kind of short but it is good. I recomend you get this film. If you have not seen or ever watched the oyama trilogy, by all means check this one out. Also, the picture quality put out by adness is top notch. Great widescreen remastering.

Summary: Karate Bearfighter
Comment: What starts off as a pretty good movie turns ridiculous. It is sad because it didn't have to. You will notice with these Sonny Chiba movies that they are not super low budget like most chinese and taiwanese kung fu films. The fights are all good but the bear fight was just horrible. They had like a weird robot and then a guy in a bear suit for some the time. I want to know why they didn't actually at least show a real bear. It was unbearable!

This movie is kind of the same as bull fighter and has most of the same actors. But all Chiba films do that. So again he is an outkast and nobody would ever except his challenge because their dojos are for respectable karate masters. So he ends up showing off again, at least in evreybody's eyes. So again all the fights are good but I don't think that when a bear dies he keeps getting up and falling down.

The DVD picture quality is really good but does have some horizantal lines during the movie. Not very noticeable overall though. Sound is also very good. And remember that when fighting a bear you have to use that special move of jumping over him and kicking him.

Also look out for a cameo in the credits by the real Mas Oyamo that Chiba is portraying in this trilogy.

Summary: ridiculous.
Comment: I am a Black Belt in Kyokushin, and was a student of Mas Oyama in Japan. I wish one day Japanese movie production would make a TRUE BIOGRAPHY Film about Mas Oyama. Not Fiction movie like this one, may be 10% based on true Mas Oyama's life. He deserve to have a better, REAL biography film. The korean film "Fighter in the Wind" is another one that I did not like since it is not an accurate biography. It has too much of a prejudice view by the Koreans. Mas Oyama only konws the true story.....It is BEST to read a book written by Mas Oyama himself, rather than watching fiction entertaiment movies. OSU~!
