Only the Strong

Ex-Special Forces soldier Louis Stevens returns to Miami to find his former high school overrun by drugs and violence. A master of the Brazilian martial art, capoeira, Stevens pledges to straighten out a dozen of the school's worst students by teaching them this demanding and highly-disciplined fighting style. Slowly, his program begins to work, giving the students new hope and purpose. But the local drug lord, himself a martial arts expert, vows to stop Stevens' positive influence. Now Stevens must fight to save his own life, as well as the lives of his rebellious young students.

Featured Animal Action

No review will be written or rating made on this film since virtually all animal action was cut from the film. We monitored one scene with a goat. However, this scene was cut from the film. The only remaining animal action is strictly background or atmosphere with some birds (Egrets) flying. The only other animal action is a close up of a parrot sitting on a perch.
