badly dubbed but enjoyable for grindhouse geeks
19 March 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I came across a trailer of this flick on a grindhouse compilation DVD. Immediately I thought that I would like to see it but it wasn't that easy to track it down. I had to went overseas to the States to track it down because it's only available on NTSC VHS. But first you had to be sure to hunt down the right title because it was released as The Chase aka Shanghai killers aka Slash:The Blade Of Death. It do pops up sometimes on Ebay and Amazon for a reasonable price.

I was also surprised how good it was made even as it was a low budget. Some will turn this grindhouse flick of but if you watch it it is over before you know it. The story is easy to follow but what made it laughable was the English dubbing. That was out of sync and even as cheesy as it could be. No emotion in voices even as you see emotions on their faces. On the part of gore or red stuff, forget it. You only will see some scratches or here and there a hand being sliced by a samurai sword.

As I said earlier the acting was rather European style. Maybe it's explained that it was shot in Hong Kong. But what really makes it grindhouse are the fighting scene's that really looked laughable. The typical wiring shots are added but it's all done in a camp way. Still, I enjoyed it.
