Shonuff!
4 January 2004 | by (Lyngby, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Why have this movie got so long a rating? It is a clear 10/10. Probably the most funky martial arts movie ever made. An absolute 80s masterpiece. Full of honour for Bruce Lee and that period as well as containing the spirit of Van Damme and the 80s - and afro-american funk as well as saterday night fever dance movies. This movie definitely got the glow!
