Lieutenant Casey Sheppard, US SEAL, (Michael Worth) takes exception to the useless brutality of his chief Frank Ratliffe (Damian Chapa), during a search and destroy mission. Later, back to their army base in Okinawa Island, Japan, it's obvious they are interested in Sensei Matsumura's (George Cheung) twin daughters, the daring Nikki (Karen Kim) and the coy Kamiko (Karen Kim in a double role). Frank goes on a date with Nikki and sometime later Casey finds her corpse, and sees Frank in the process of hiding evidence of a murder-for-rape crime. Three years later, Frank Ratliffe is a criminal operating from a former Russian island, who has turned against his own SEAL corps and about to kidnap Dr. Jane Burrows (Kate Connor), a physicist scientist, to force her help him getting two nuclear bombs ready for a strike against the United States. Backed by an army of dozens of killers, plus Sophia (Sophia Crawford), a sexy expert with the saber, and Borris (Velizar Binev) the scarf strangler, he ... Written by Artemis-9

Watch with beer and friends only
22 March 2003 | by (Canterbury, Kent England) – See all my reviews

Ok lets start with the obvious, this movie is bad. Awful script, awful acting, unbelievably atrocious dialogue, budget the size of a car insurance advert and you could go on and on about how awful the film is.... but you would be wrong.

Just like a nugget of gold wrapped in layers and layers .... and layers of mud, get beneath the surface (really far beneath the surface)there is treasure to be found.

Lets start with the premise which is just an excellent excuse for some martial arts action. Ok ridiculously insane and evil bad guy has nukes and where is he launching them from? an island where the nuclear fallout of a past conflict would make a single gunshot ignite the whole island. (I am sure there is a reason why launching the nukes won't but I can't remember). So good guy puts together a crack squad of martial arts experts with dodgy pasts and different weapon specialities and prepares to kick ass. The film quickly reaches high octane stupidness, with hundreds of people battling it out in surprisingly well choreographed fight scenes.

The complete over the topness of the film gives it an infectious fun feel, a film which is the equivalent to a whole day spent in the pub with your best mates. This film is incredibly funny. Regardless of action taken a huge swishing noise accompanies it. I need to adjust my glasses (swish), I am going stand up (swish swish), I am walking (swish swish swish swish). The dialogue is hilarious and the fight scenes are sometimes outrageously funny, especially the closing fight scenes which are over the top brilliance. Sure its all unintentional funniness but its still funny.

Yes over the top martial arts violence, strippers and swearing. This is an excellent example of must watch with beer and mates category of action films.

In short its not big, its certainly not clever, in fact its not even any good. It deserves 2 or 3 it gets hmm 7.
