Is this for real?

I admit, I didn't actually watch the whole movie (I fast-forwarded through a lot of it, it seemed so terrible), so I've refrained from actually giving it a rating. The whole time, I was trying to figure out if this movie was for real. I logged onto this site to make sure that I didn't dream the whole thing up. The movie is that odd. A low budget martial arts action movie that wants to show the viewer the path to enlightenment. What makes it so surreal is that, unlike most low-budget action movies, it skips the gratuitous nudity and actually seems to take itself seriously. At first I thought it was tongue in cheek, but after listening to the eastern mysticism voice-over at the end, I'm not so sure. What makes this terrible movie even sadder is the fact that it seems to be dedicated, with complete gravity and earnestness, to the dead wife of the star/writer. The creepiest part is, I found this movie lying around in my apartment, and I haven't a clue as to where it came from.
