Best of the Best is a 1989 American martial arts film directed by Bob Radler, and produced by Phillip Rhee, who also co-stars in the film. The film also starred Eric Roberts, James Earl Jones and Christopher Penn.

The plot revolves around a team of American martial artists facing a team of Korean martial artists in a taekwondo tournament. Several subplots pop up in the story - moral conflicts, the power of the human spirit triumphing over adversity and the meaning of life are some themes.

Set and filmed in Los Angeles, California, and Seoul, South Korea, between February 13 and April 6, 1989, Best of the Best was released on November 10, 1989.

Another example of a film, where I can't believe didn't have a thread yet on the site. I love this film for it's messages about patriotism, hard work, overcoming obstacles, compassion. It's an inspirational film that always gets me pumped it. It has a young Eric Roberts when he was making a real career for himself, and when no-one knew Julia yet. The rest of the cast is filled out really well also, Chris Penn (RIP), Phillip Rhee, James Earl Jones, they fit their roles perfectly. 1989 was a pretty good year for films, and this one belongs right up their with the best. Would rank it right above Tango & Cash or so.

I vaguely remember this. I remember thinking it was an R-rated knock-off of The Karate Kid, actually. It was just there, and never picked me up like other 80s martial arts films did. I also felt Chris Penn was unbelievable/silly/annoying in the role.
