I rented this movie on VHS a LONG time ago (back when Hollywood Video was Video Watch). It's great! The hero is inadvertently drawn into war between two clans when he interrupts the rape of a young girl.

I couldn't remember the names of any of the actors if you put a gun to my head, but they were all great. Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure it was part of a distribution company's set. I saw a few of them, but this was the best one. Somebody please release this on DVD.
