A painfully boring journey to the center of a turd
19 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't believe all these negative reviews here for MAX HAVOC: CURSE OF THE DRAGON, it's worse. Way worse.

This is one of those films you sort of stumble upon at the video store, and everything else good or halfway good is already checked out, so you give it a shot, knowing full well the film is going to suck. But just how bad MAX HAVOC sucks may shock you: It's dull, boring, tiresome, listless, etc, etc. You get the idea.

Someone on one of these reviews here compares MAX HAVOC to an episode of MANGNUM P.I., except MANGNUM P.I. is at lest a competent product. MAX HAVOC is wretchedly bad. It's the kind of bad-film in which you wonder while watching it: "How do films like this get made?" A very good question.

MAX HAVOC was made by consistently bad film maker Albert Pyun. You wonder why anyone would knowingly hire this hack. The film is full of stock footage, bad acting, the list can go on forever.

There is currently some kinda controversy over the financing of the film. The island of Guam put up the money for this film (who can say why. I guess they have never seen an Albert Pyun film because that's exactly what they got: An Albert Pyun incompetent sh*t film.)

Folks, if you're a film investor and you see the name Albert Pyun attached to the film some slimy film producer is asking you to invest in, be afraid. Be very afraid.

If this film were an animal it would be taken out back and shot and put out of it's misery. If you're unfortunate enough to have to endure this dung-heap DVD, you may wish someone would shoot you and put you out of your misery.

MAX HAVOC: CURSE OF THE DRAGON is maximum incompetencey, maximum tedium, and maximum thievery.
