Giving it a 10 for unintentional comedy!

Holy crap! Let me rephrase that - holy holy crap crap! This action film is a vehicle for Irish kung fu twin brothers Michael and Martin McNamara, owners of the illustrious Twin Dragons Kung Fu schools in Canada. Here they stretch their acting abilities and star as Michael and Martin, owners of the illustrious Twin Dragons Kung Fu schools in Canada. They decide to go on a week vacation in the wilderness with their girlfriends but trouble starts immediately when they run afoul of a group of weekend warriors. The twins don't take kindly to the bad guys and, like the theme song by one Billy Butt states over and over, "We're gonna fight for the right to fight!" Running a scant 70 minutes, this is one of those rare films in the same league as classics like Hollywood COP, SAMURAI COP and THE CRIME KILLER. I knew I was in store for a good time when, in the opening fight scene, a criminal grabs a scrawny dog and yells, "Back off or I twist this mutt's neck!" Of course, the brothers are purveyors of good and save said dog (and the owner who is creepily stroked on the head by one of the twins). Michael and Martin look like a cross between Tom Selleck and Robert Carradine. They are actually pretty good martial artists but the film ruins any aspect of them looking good by using video slo-mo during 50% of the fight scenes. Nearly every line in the film is killer but my favorite is when the twins return to the cabin after their girls have been kidnapped and one yells, "Our poster is gone!" Yes, the adorn the walls of their cabin with posters of themselves. Highly recommended!
