COWARDS!!!
23 January 2004 | by (Galveston Bay Area, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is a really badly dubbed movie as far as the english dialogue is concerned. I don't know how it is in Italian but the English version uses the word COWARD in what seems like every other sentence. I have heard better dialogue in a Speed Racer Cartoon. Its not to bad if you like to see muscle men running around in technicolor miniskirts. Its also good for a few unintentional laughs for bad movie watchers such as myself. I rated this movie a 2 only because believe it or not I've seen worse. COWARDS!!! Sincerely bagtown 2002
