Storyline

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 Anonymous

Great Fight Sequences.
7 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film has some great fight sequences! I especially like the one in the diner. Rivals anything I have seen.Mike Gunther and Marcus Young have done a great job. Director Ken Scott keeps the film moving and makes sure to keep the fun tone throughout. This film is outstanding , especially because it was made independently. these fight sequences must have taken days to choreograph and it shows on screen, it's is amazing that they were able to pull it off with a modest budget. The story line is great - magic power is an electric guitar, Kung-fu Deamons and the old "good vs. Evil" all make this film easy to watch. It is definitely a popcorn movie and plain fun. Don't take it too seriously and ENJOY!
