hilariously funny, 25 August 2001
Author: TheComedian from Medford, NJ

This is one of the most over-the-top films I have ever seen. The great Rudy Ray Moore has taken an already-bizarre martial arts film and redubbed it with topically humorous dialogue, and added a couple scenes featuring himself as a monk and his old friend Jimmy Lynch as a drunken master. The newly-dubbed story has the evil martial artist 2Pac stealing the Dolby Digital death bell from the Wu-Tang Clan, and teaming with evil ninjas, including a female who likes to take her top off and use her breasts as weapons. The Wu-Tang must get help from the Shaolin, a Japanese prince, the Lost Tribe of Shabazz (two white guys who speak in ebonics), and Davey Crockett. Yes, Davey Crockett. The film parodies everything from chop socky clichés to Hip-Hop's East Coast-West Coast beef, and it's all hilarious. It's great to see that Rudy's stll got it after all these years.
