Am I crazy or is this one weird, cool, no-budget ass whooping kick boxing film?
13 February 2007 | by (CA) – See all my reviews

I think this was shot in the Phillipines, and that some of the cast and crew were drugged out ex- pats who had worked on Apocalypse Now and never made it home. Many of the same also show up in American Kickboxer 2, including the producer, the star, and one of the editors. But whatever they were on, it somehow works. This film has weird, sometimes funny dialogue, and the action sequences are violent and effective. Everything gels, though it's often teetering on the edge of bad. There's even a fight that crashes through a movie set. It's wild.

Dale "Apollo" Cook is the star. He's sort of forgotten in kick boxing movie lore, hidden in the shadows of even Cynthia Rothrock, but he's not bad at all. His character really does seem like a Yank stuck in some horrible, mosquito infested no-man's land who has to fight his way out. That was probably his experience working on the film, too. I'm not recommending this for just anyone. I think you need to watch it late at night, while in the middle of some crazy binge, and you're experiencing intense clarity about life, and you just can't be bothered by any phony baloney pretentious BS.
