Forbidden Warrior (2004) is a martial arts action/fantasy film, starring Marie Matiko, Sung Kang and Karl Yune. It was directed by Jimmy Nickerson, and produced by Glen Hartford and Daniel Toll. The film is notable in resembling a low-budget Hong Kong action film, despite its American production and cast. It received a poor critical reception, with User Rating 3.7/10 on IMDB as of November 2009. A review in Variety noted that characters from a Chinese myth are given Japanese names and played by caucasians.[1]

In a 2006 interview, the writer/producer Glen Hartford claims he based the story on "a piece of mythological history, from over 4000 years ago", and calls the movie an "Asian film".[2]
