Dubbed by people watching another movie, 19 January 2008
Author: dbborroughs from Glen Cove, New York

Ever watch a movie that wasn't in your native tongue to start but has been so badly dubbed you can't tell if the movie bites or the dubbing? This is one of those movies. Sure I've seen plenty of bad sword and sandal films and martial arts flicks but this films dubbing so so hideous that I'm wondering what planet the dubbing director was on. Its all the bad 70's dub voices but in this film they are put to particularly bad use...

The horror, the horror...

I honestly can't rate the film because the dub is so bad its not fair to even try....
