Goofs

At the end of the movie, when everybody is at the Zebra club, Sam's sister fires three rounds at Wu. Wu apparently catches all three bullets, then the camera zooms in on his hand. However, the bullets shown in his hand still have the casings on them, thus they couldn't have been fired from a gun. See more »

Hilarious Schlock-filled action flick
5 February 1999 | by (Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I accidentally caught this film on TV one night on a channel I didn't really get, and noticed it was filmed near where I live. This piqued my interest enough to rent it, and boy was I glad I did. B-Movie man Albert Pyun wrote and directed this hilarious martial-arts action film. It's got a lot of comedy in it (sometimes not intentional) and Pyun manages to even make Andrew Dice Clay likeable! It also has a pre-Lois Teri Hatcher as well. It's corny fun, not meant to be taken seriously, similar to Barry Gordy's The Last Dragon. Lots of one-liners, running gags, decent action, and Teri Hatcher, what else matters?
