Wow! I watched this movie several times, because it was awesome. I really laughed throughout the entire movie! Fighting scenes without hitting, terrible soundtrack, people acting worse than the TNA Wrestling contestants, the lead actor visibly waiting for his cue AND a dragging, unconvincing sentimental scene at the end. This movie has it all. It really is THE flick for some late night entertainment with no suspense, only kick-ass slap-stick scenes put together. Of course this was not the intention of the makers, but with their budget, you can hardly expect anything more. This movie has an enormous cultural value. Although I agree with the IMDb's 1.7 for it's genre (horror/thriller) it deserves a ten for bringing joy and laughter in the world.
Thanks Don Barton, I enjoyed every moment!
