Very Enjoyable
27 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a very fun movie to watch on a boring Saturday night. I ordered in some Chinese food, sat on my couch, popped it in, and enjoyed. A great revenge story, with lots of cheesy sound effects, and tons of funny fight scenes. I don't feel that it was degrading towards physically handicapped people. Actually I feel like it was a tribute towards them. Watch this movie with some Pork Spare Ribs, Chicken Chow Mein, Orange Beef, and some Green Tea. Follow my guidelines and you will enjoy this movie. This film is definitely re-watchable, and you can definitely jump to a fight scene and enjoy a good 5 minute fight scene quickly before you go out for the night. 7/10
