Never have i seen such a bad film EVER!!
27 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Awful yes! but you have to watch it. My friend at school was a fat kid who's mum used to dote on him feeding his every whim, he watched Rambo and needed more violence without plot stuff, his old lady rushed to the newsagents and found this film going for 1.99 so brought it back her her young prince. Sadly i was round his house at the time (circa 1991) and watched the film as well. I never forgot it and years later i managed to buy a copy on ebay (50p), this time i could watch it through more critical eyes and i will list the hilarious points for you 1. The terrible dubbing 2. The plot stinks 3. The acting stinks 4. The porno feel of the movie 5. The man with the golden hand 6. The neck crunching scene 7. The baddie is actually very kind to the hero's wife (treats her much better than an idiot who has spent most of their marriage in the Phillipeans/Vietnam/California?) 8. The unnecessary violence 9. The weapon that is featured heavily on the video box hardly makes an appearance at all except at the beginning! 10. The rubbish and unnecessary end credits (I mean who cares if he died of a heart attack in prison!) 11. The hero wears the same track suit in this film as he does in Blood Debts (even though he plays a different character!)
