Storyline

From Odessa Filmworks, the award winning team that brought the world Harry Knuckles and the Treasure of the Aztec Mummy and rewrote the gospel of Canadian filmmaking with Jesus Christ, Vampire Hunter comes a new knuckle-dusting adventure starring everyone's favourite super spy. A valuable necklace has gone missing, and Harry Knuckles, AKA Special Agent Spanish Fly, is on the case. But getting his hirsute hands on the prize isn't going to be easy for the diminutive dynamo. There's more to this case than meets the eye. Armed with a lethal arsenal of kung-fu moves, a hair-trigger temper, a fistful of moxie and a seemingly endless supply of potassium-rich bananas, Harry's ready to knuckle up against any and all comers. Back to back with his loyal friend, famed Mexican wrestler El Santos, Harry goes toe to toe with the hinterland horror of the Bionic Bigfoot and an army of interlopers. Can even Special Agent Spanish Fly survive the Zen onslaught of a shadow warrior from the land of the ... Written by Ian Driscoll

direction less mess with a good soundtrack
15 March 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm going to preface this review by saying that I'm a big fan of Lee Demarbre's movies. I have two of them in my personal collection ("Harry Knuckles and the Treasure of the Aztec Mummy" and "Jesus Christ: Vampire Hunter").

Having said that, I hated "Harry Knuckles and the Pearl Necklace". I appreciate the fact that it was shot on about $40,000, however I felt that the story essentially had no plot, seemed to change direction continuously, and had many scenes which did NOTHING to advance anything other than my confusion at what was going on. I kept asking myself: "how is this relevant to the story?" and by the end it became quite apparent that much of it was irrelevant. This is unlike Demarbre's other movies which have a clear plot and progress towards the end with purpose in most scenes.

This added up to a movie with a LONG running time (almost two hours) that felt even longer. What this movie really needed was some good editing to tighten things up. If it was one hour long, to remove much of the irrelevant matter, then it might have been much better.

It did have its comedic moments, the ridiculous fight scenes are priceless as always and Demarbre does have a knack for the comedic absurd, but they weren't nearly enough to make up for such a direction less mess.

Finally, as another failed saving grace, like in Demarbre's other movies, the music was fantastic.

I cannot recommend this movie to anybody.
