This is a good movie. With the title and description, I expected an all out camp movie that would be fun and humorous, but this film has a lot of spirit. It's unique it's assimilation of several genres, for one. It also manages to create what has been destroyed in recent history of the martial arts film genre, where the protagonist is tragically heroic, and flawed. This is not typical hollywood fare, nor does it cross that line into a pure comic camp romp. The action scenes are excellent. The main characters are multidimensional, despite what little dialogue (and what great dialouge it has) they have. The film is well photographed, going far beyond what currently is offered in theatres. The film also has a lot of heart. It never compromises its integrity for trying to make a popcorn movie. It's so fun fillled and free spirited, which is rare in movies today. Plus, any movie with buddy holly moving with the grace of bruce lee is nothing short of unique. This one's a winner.
