Great cover
21 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, so I've never actually seen Full Contact, but I've been so close to renting it on many occasions. And all because of the cover of this video. Come on, look at that package! This is the most blatant depiction of male camel toe that I've yet seen on a movie cover. I will certainly see this eventually.

Above and beyond the tight, tight shorts are the facial expressions and bad techniques evident. Right on the cover! They actually are using these images to PROMOTE the film. The marketing for this movie is incredible.

Of course, this movie was made during the mad rush of Americanizing martial arts films. The late 80's and early 90's were the worst time period for these cookie cutter movies. So I imagine the actual film itself is much the same as all the rest: bad. But I give the cover an A+ for sheer gall in displaying genitalia so prominently.
