Similar to "The Dirty Dozen" or one of that nature. Japan is trying to take over the world and the generals of the allied forces trying to stop the Japanese have been taken prisoner. A force of loners and fighters is put together to try and rescue the generals and save the war effort with the promise of gold and/or pardons of past crimes. Written by

The Tuxedoed Guy's real name is "Yu Jin Xiang" (Tulip), and his entrance theme is also that of "Chor Lauheung" (1979) ("Chu Liu Xiang" in Mandarin), a martial arts soap that Adam Cheng was starring in at the time. Given he played a suave swordsman with an eye for women in the latter, he was associated with these Bond-like characters for a while. His role as "Tuxedo Man" is a riff on that. See more »
Early, when Capt. Don Wen is offering Billy the job, he says "Old Sun's in... There's money in it." Billy's response is "If Old Sun and Lightnin' are in, there must be money in it. Count me in, too." Capt. Wen never mentions Greased Lightning previously, meaning Billy is replying with information he couldn't possibly know. See more »

Wow. Reviewing this movie is like reviewing someone else's hallucination. There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to it, no way to even know what I just saw, let alone how to describe it. It makes Yellow Submarine seem as coherent as Schindler's List.
You owe it to yourself to watch this movie. Because you will sit in utter amazement, gaping throughout, wondering to yourself how, how is it possible that human beings could, or would, produce something this unbelievably awful. And at the same time you'll simply marvel at just how entertaining whatever this is, is.
I give this movie 10/10, but only because there is nothing else like it on earth. It is so... unique, you just have to experience it before you die, or you will never have really lived. Like love, or a bad fever, no one can explain it to you, you just have to endure it yourself.
The only relevant description I can offer is this: even the venerable folks at Mystery Science Theater 3000 never had the stamina to take on a film like this, but you can sure bet they wanted to. Enough said.
Oh, and it has Jackie Chan. Sort of.
