SIDEKICKS (Theatrical Release USA 1993)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

Sidekicks—nothing new or fresh—manages to evoke a certain charismatic appeal that makes the movie work as a martial arts story. Mako, Jonathan Brandis, and Beau Bridges create most of that charismatic appeal. It serves the martial arts movie fan fairly well.
