Absolute Garbage
3 January 2001 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

When i first saw this, i thought 'I will never see anything as terrible as this in my life'. I was wrong, though, because i saw Joel Reed's 'Bloodsucking Freaks'. This would have to come in a close second as the worst movie ever though.

People hire martial arts movies for one reason : Action. Me and 4 friends borrowed this while we were in a great mood, and turned it on hoping for some great fighting and possibly a feasible storyline. The first 5 minutes in the tournament were just what we wanted, and we were looking forward to more. 2 minutes later everybody but me had left. The movie starts off well, but simply degenerated into one of the most boring pieces of %#$^ ever. After the initial action, it is just people wandering around the streets talking to each other for over an hour. Would this satisfy a martial arts fan? That question doesn't need to be answered...

There is no reason at all to watch this movie. The acting is shoddy, the storyline in non-existent, and there is NO ACTION. I am disappointed in myself for sitting through this when everybody else got the fun of playing pool. This movie is so boring that I would rather spend 2 hours cleaning public toilets than watch it. The lowest mark should be lowered to a 0 for this movie. 1 is too high.
