Johnny Dow struggles to make a living at his small town gas station by charging motorists to see the electric guitar used by his late father a one-hit, rock and roll wonder. Legend has it the guitar was carved in the shape of a dragon's head and made in part from an ancient spear his father found in the crater of a shooting star. When Johnny's friend Eddie stumbles upon the other half of the spear he releases an ancient demon hungry for power and destruction. Mika a beautiful Chinese warrior who holds the secret to fighting Eddie and his army of kung fu, sugar-craving warriors reveals to Johnny that the only way to stop the evil spirit is to use the first half of the spear - the dragon on Johnny's guitar! Together Johnny and Mika set out to fight Eddie and his army, reunite the two halves of the spear, restore peace to the town and - of course - save the world! Written by
Excellent family/action/kung fu /just for fun movie
This movie is just fun. Not pretentious, no deep messages, no agenda other than being entertaining. A little formulaic, but sometimes it's fun to know what is going to happen. And enough surprises to keep you paying attention. Fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will feel right at home, with the action and even some of the costuming reminiscent of those movies and Saturday morning shows. No turtles, but the flavor is there. Maybe because the writer/director Kenn Scott was one of the original Turtles (Raphael)? :-)
Kelly Perine was excellent! (bias alert: his sister is a friend of our family) Classic comedy and some great lines and action moves. :-) This is a must see movie for families or anyone that wants a good action flick, without all the attitude and vulgarity that seems to be sprinkled in most movies of this type. Pure entertainment that doesn't try to be anything more.
Grab some popcorn and enjoy!
