An American with a Japanese upbringing, Chris Kenner (Dolph Lundgren) is a police officer assigned to the Little Tokyo section of Los Angeles. Kenner is partnered with Johnny Murata (Brandon Lee), a Japanese-American who isn’t in touch with his roots. Despite their differences, both men excel at martial arts, and utilize their formidable skills when they go up against Yoshida (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), a vicious yakuza drug dealer with ties to Kenner’s past.

Before you knew BRANDON LEE in THE CROW and TIA CARRERE in WAYNE’S WORLD–but after you knew DOLPH LUNDGREN in ROCKY IV–there was 1991’s SHOWDOWN IN LITTLE TOKYO directed by MARK L.
