THE MARTIAL ARTS KID FILMFRAK PODCAST SPECIAL: Starring Cynthia Rothrock

The beautiful, wise and deadly Cynthia Rothrock honors us in conversation as our special guest in another FilmFrak exclusive.

Back in the late 80’s and early 90’s in the days of VHS and Cinemax there was only one kickass female martial arts heroine in the same league as the likes of Van Damme or Seagal and that was the mighty Cynthia Rothrock.

The Five-time undefeated World Karate Champion with a black belt in multiple disciplines began her screen career starring in the Hong Kong actioner YES, MADAME opposite Michelle Yeoh in 1985. From there films like THE MAGIC CRYSTAL, ABOVE THE LAW, MARTIAL LAW, CHINA O’BRIEN and HONOR & GLORY followed as well as being the inspiration for the iconic Sonya Blade from Mortal Kombat.

Sincere and down to earth Cynthia joins us to talk about two of her latest films PAYING MR McGETTY and THE MARTIAL ARTS KID. (Which we review in our latest episode HERE) Offering insight on being a strong woman in the largely male dominated world of martial arts cinema among other subjects Cynthia talks Hollywood myopia with the EXPENDABELLES and the shady practices of the MORTAL KOMBAT maneuvering that resulted in her not seeing a dime arise as she shares memories that span her career.

We hope you enjoy our listening to our delightful time with Cynthia Rothrock.

As always we encourage all feedback and thank you for listening.
