Best of the Worst
16 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you can put aside story sophistication, story line continuity, and class, you will utterly love this movie.

It is a bizarre story of two crippled people working together to beat their evil master. Once these former enemies pair up with some help along the way, they go head to head with their former master in an unforgettable fight scene in the end.

The Kung Fu was OK, but the ingenuity makes it worth it.

It's mindless fun and the kind of movie that everyone with a sense of humor will love.

Enjoyment factor: 10 Sophistication factor: 0
