Utter garbage
18 April 2001 | by (Bakersfield, CA) – See all my reviews

When I began to watch the movie, I had to try not to laugh...and nothing funny was going on! The bad lip synch of the entire movie made me want to vomit. God. The acting was crap, some martial artists have some acting skill (ie Jackie Chan), but if you think these guys will give you a good show, you'll be sadly mistaken. The fight sequences seem so planned. Very little seems to set off the characters. The camera is wobbly and...God, just for the love of all that is holy, DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE (unless you want to laugh at one of the worst movies of all time).
