Sonny Chiba is the chopsocky star of Karate Warriors. Chiba is a self-styled crime fighter, and the film certainly gives him enough to fight. The fun begins when he takes on battalions of criminals on the streets, with nary a cop in sight. Karate Warriors should not be confused with the like-vintage Filipino film Karate Warrior. (Rovi)
