Odd, to say the very least
22 July 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Gods Must Be Crazy III (a.k.a. Crazy Safari- 1991) C- 96 min. Lung Chan, Sam Christopher Chow, Stephen Chow, Ching-Ying Lam, Man Tat Ng, N!xau, Peter Pau. Xixo, the bushman from THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY films returns, this time getting involved with a magician and an ancient Chinese vampire, along the way learning some kung fu moves. Odd, to say the very least, this movie was a hard find, video title CRAZY SAFARI and only available on in the VCD (Video CD) format. The film itself is hard to understand due to the Cantonese language (the version I have was translated, but still barely audible) but some parts did make me chuckle and it was nice to see N!xau the bushman back in action, even if it was in a far lesser film than the first two GODS movies. The rating is solely based on what I could gather. RATING: 5 out of 10.
