English Summary:

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 RobertsJames Earl Jones and Chris Penn.

The plot revolves around a team of American martial artists facing a team of South Korean martial artists in a karate 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 AngelesCalifornia, and SeoulSouth Korea, between February 13 and April 6, 1989, Best of the Best was released on November 10, 1989.

Alexander Grady (Eric Roberts), a widower and father of a five-year-old son is chosen to represent the United States of America in an international martial arts tournament against Team Korea. Once a rising star in the martial arts world, he suffered a shoulder injury that forced him into retirement. Also chosen for the team are Tommy Lee (Phillip Rhee), a skilled fighter and martial arts instructor, Travis Brickley (Chris Penn), an extremely brash fighter with a short fuse; Virgil Keller (John Dye), a devout Buddhist; and Sonny Grasso (David Agresta), a streetwise fighter from Detroit.

Coached by veteran trainer Frank Couzo (James Earl Jones), the team begins training. Their chances of winning are virtually non-existent, as the Koreans train all year long, enjoy the full funding of the country's government and are known as the best the sport has to offer. Travis starts out deliberately antagonistic to the other members of his team, particularly Tommy. More drama arises when a second assistant coach, Catherine Wade (Sally Kirkland), is hired, whose more spiritual approach leads to conflict with Couzo's more aggressive coaching techniques. Further complicating the situation is the fact that Tommy is pitted against the Korean team's best fighter; Dae Han, a merciless opponent who once killed Tommy's brother in a similar tournament, leading to an internal conflict as Tommy struggles to balance his rage over his brother with his firm pacifist beliefs. When Wade learns of Tommy's past with Dae-Han she berates Coach Couzo for putting Tommy in the ring with him. The two come to an understanding after Couzo reveals that he was coaching the team in the tournament in which Tommy's brother died, and has since lived with the guilt, realizing that he didn't push his team hard enough. In a conversation with Alex, Tommy reveals he's not scared of Dae Han, but rather scared that when faced with his opponent, he will kill him.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Riválisok (eredeti cím: Best of the Best1989-ben bemutatott amerikai sport film. Ez a film az első része a Riválisok filmsorozatnak, amely összesen négy részből áll. A főszerepekben Phillip RheeEric Roberts és Simon Rhee látható. Phillip és Simon Rhee testvérek, de a filmben egymás ellen harcolnak.[1] Phillip Rhee a színészkedés mellett a forgatókönyvírásból és a produceri munkálatokból is kivette a részét.

Alex Grady régebben elég jól karatézott, de egy sérülés miatt abba kellett hagynia a sportot. Most kétkezű munkából él, és van egy fia akit nagyon szeret. De a spottal sem tudott felhagyni, és amikor egy selejtező után bekerül az amerikai nemzeti karate válogatottba, úgy dönt, hogy a sérülését figyelmen kívül hagyja és elmegy az edzőtáborba. Ott hónapokig keményen edz a csapattársaival, és mindezt azért, hogy legyőzzék a koreaiak csapatát. A gond csak az, hogy a koreaiak a legjobbak a sportágban, akiknek a karate nemcsak sport, hanem életforma is. A csapatukban világbajnokok és korosztályos bajnokok találhatóak, a szakértők szerint szinte verhetetlenek. Főleg Dae Han emelkedik ki közülük, aki egy élő legenda, eddigi pályafutása során már mindent megnyert. A koreai és az amerikai csapat is öt-öt versenyzőből áll, akik a viadalon egyenként, egymás ellen küzdenek. A végén az a csapat nyer, amelyik több pontot szerzett.
