A Total Mess of a Film Thats Fun to Sit and Rip Apart
Let me get this out at the start, this movie is absolutely one of the worst films I've ever seen. Maybe its a poorly written English script or poor editing, but this film is awful, its terrible, and if your in the mood to make fun of a movie its one of the best targets you can find.
Yes boys and girls, this is another of those its so bad its good films.
The plot has a once mighty fighter getting out of prison. Years before he had killed someone and was sent away. We see in flashbacks that he also raped and blinded the daughter of his teacher and did all sorts of other nasty things.The flashback is so badly done its not clear until well after it happens that we were watching a flashback. The man's criminal friends still want to use him even though he has sworn never to fight again, preferring to wallow in self pity while trying to make it up to his sainted silver haired mother and wife, who's become a hooker out of shame. Thats just the first twenty minutes, there are another eighty to go. It makes my brain scream at the thought of telling you more.
The fight scenes are beyond laughable. Punches that don't land send people to the ground, throwing stars that fly past a target cut off arms and hands, blow gun darts that drop six inches from the user are suddenly buried in the face of a victim who is holding them in place. Its a howl. The over done script is bloated with false sentiment and over done emotion.
You'll stare in disbelief at the badness of it all...
And if you have someone to riff with this film is a great film. Its a shame that Mystery Science Theater 3000 ended before it could send up this drek-fest.
If you love bad movies see this. If you don't, run as far and as fast as you can from this bomb of a film.
