This movie will rock your world.
9 August 2002 | by (Phoenix, Arizona) – See all my reviews

I had the good fortune of catching a screening of this film at this year's Tromadance Film Festival in Park City Utah. This movie is the quintessential exploitation-flick satire. It goofs on everything from A Better Tomorrow to Terms of Endearment. Or was was that Foxy Brown it was making fun of? At any rate, gorehounds, fans of hong kong cinema, and even the ladies can all enjoy this film immensely. There is something for everybody in this gem. I also was fortunate enough to meet the writer/director Alvin Ecarma, and I found him to be a passionate filmmaker with obviously very large aspirations. This assessment proves once again Filipino Directors from Washington DC are indeed second to none in the world of moviemaking. Can't wait until the sequel!!!
