Excellent sets are about the only thing going for this confused bit of absurdity. Aside from looking like a typical Yuen Chor production, lighting, sets, costumes, extravagant fight scenes, there's little to recommend. The story is full of holes and aside from the ridiculous appearance of the Bat (he looks almost exactly like Gene Simmons in KISS make-up) the result is unsatisfying. The effects department went out of their way to make sure the gory parts looked as stupid as possible. The Bat kidnaps and dismembers a woman and sends her body parts home. It's so clearly a store mannequin taken apart you can see the seams! Later when the heroes are fighting a gang around a toxic pond, you can see that blood is painted on the extras BEFORE they fall in the poisoned water which is supposed to make them bleed. When the end happens you'll think back and says, "Wait a minute, this doesn't all add up!"
