Capital disappointment
5 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

I just can't believe that it's possible to make martial arts movies as bad as this one. This is a great example for all future filmmakers how things should not be done. First, let talk about the fight scenes. Before watching this movie, I knew that it would be fighting almost non-stop from beginning to end. Great, I thought. The only problem is that the fight scenes just stink way beyond imagination. They were both slow and totally unspectacular, and I almost fell asleep watching.

And now for the story (or lack of story). During this movie, I had huge problems in figuring out what was going on. Things just didn't make any sense at all, and I guess it's a new world record when it comes to plot holes (Calling them plot holes is way to good of a description though, since this movie really doesn't have a plot at all).

And then, you could add David Carradine's worst part in a movie ever (maybe), and the same for Gary Daniels. I sure hope they have forgotten about this maximum piece of junk a long time ago.
