Best chase scene ever!
28 October 2004 | by (Detroit, hope you know where it is.) – See all my reviews

I have to say that this movie contains the best chase scene ever to be filmed in the history of mankind! When the main character, Mr. Harry Wong (no joke) gets into his tiny little car and is chased by ninjas wearing white rollerskates with big pink wheels.

If you manage to find this one, rent it! Just beware of the 2 absolutely random and gratuities sex scenes. They kinda pop outta nowhere.

All in all, it's your typical Kung Fu type movie out of Hong Kong, but with a bizarre and puzzling twist at the end. "Ninja Death!"

Watch out.
