Yet another Gofrey Ho film that defies logic, gives the finger to common sense, farts in a bag and releases it into the face of good taste, and mails a turd to folks who don't like to be confused. Here, Godfrey Ho-Ho-Ho gives us Majestic Thunderbolt, the most violent cut-n-paste film I've seen from him yet.

Richard Harrison and his moustache get off a plane with some diamonds and immediately get robbed by Philip Ko and friends. The diamonds belong to Mr Franco (Played by Phil Lynnot of Thin Lizzy)who is battling rival gang run by Tiger Chan. When Franco's men kill Richard's girlfriend, and also kill the brother of Alan Chan, it's vendetta city with a side order of "This is actually two films spliced together badly".

Rather than give myself a nosebleed by describing the plot, here a list of what goes on in this film. Harrison tracks down Ko (sometimes on roller skates with a baseball bat) while Ko paints a nude woman before drinking her blood for some reason. Mr Franco poisons people while watching synchronised swimming and harpoons fish that hang from strings. Alan Chan kills loads of folks in various ways (exploding toilets, acid showers, falling chandeliers), while one character manages to remain hidden for almost the entire film before revealing himself. Also, one guy gets shot about seventy times and even melons can't escape the carnage.

Throw in a lot (and I mean A LOT) of violence, uncomfortable misogyny, uncomfortable animal cruelty (it loses a point for those), and you've got one of the most "exciting" and "action packed" "films" that Godfrey's delivered into the world from his bizarre, film making womb.

Aye.
