My brother and I liked watching karate movies after HBO and Cinemax came into our house. This 1981 film from South Africa got played a lot on cable, and I remember seeing it at least two or three times.

that have left a mark on my life.
I remember reading the film had limited budget, even with all its action, so the crew had to come up with inventive frugality for some non-action shots -- including putting smoke from a lit cigarette down the barrel of a gun to simulate a shot in slow motion.
What my brother and I liked the most, though, was the film's cheesily memorable lines.
"You should have stayed with the lady, Poopsy!"
"Don't call me Popsicle!"
