Lame all around
12 June 2014 | by (Oakland, New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Total crap. That about sums up this truly worthless film. I'm not sure how I even found it but it's one I wish I hadn't. Apparently, unbeknownst to me because I don't like the genre, Sonny Chiba was world famous for martial arts movies. This is some scifi garbage he made before becoming a star. Well, that doesn't make this good. I guess, because I need to add content to get to 10 lines, that could be a reason for Sonny Chiba fans to see it. Otherwise this shouldn't be seen by anyone. It's full of stale acting, moronic writing, and everything else in it and about it is just plain stupid. I'm not even sure why I'm giving it a 2.3! The current 5.1 rating on IMDb is a lie. The movie is terrible.

2.3 / 10 stars
