Quotes

Yoshi: You look surprised, Hiroki. Cost me a few scars but a man's got to pay his dues to get ahead.
Jack Ellis: You lying son of a bitch.
Yoshi: You should have a word with your wife about lying, Hiroki.
Jack Ellis: Why are you doing this?
Yoshi: Status, rank, power. All our lives, respect and loyalty for the family that did save us and made us predators when we would have been prey. When I didn't go with you, a part of me died, Hiroki. And I suffered for a while. And then it came to me like a moment of clarity. An epiphany. What died ...

Broken. Just broken.
17 June 2014 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Renamed as Broken Fist in the £1 shop where I found this, I can state with absolute honesty that I wasted my money.

Starting out as a serious film, night falls and preparing for bed, a couple is suddenly attacked by a masked man with a knife diving at them from across the room. Another masked man who apparently had no lines throughout the film (I couldn't make it to anywhere close to the end so can't say), then pops up to grope the wife and constantly - very annoyingly - heckle.

Anyway, the former Power Rangers dude seems like he's been killed when he spits copious amounts of blood after having his chest stamped on, but instead of more stomps ensuring his end, they imbue him with super-human endurance and the film turns into a cuss-version of the aforementioned kids' programme, as men are kicked and somersault through the air on impact.

I said that the former Black Ranger got super-human endurance and it's true, because for the next 10 minutes I managed to watch, he fights tirelessly against a growing number of assailants with a vigour unmatched by professional sporting athletes! Hmm, obviously, it's because he's a ninja.

There is a wafer-thin plot (which fails to explain why the night suddenly turned into the middle of the day when they go outside), but the sheer ridiculous fights - and I'm a HUGE kung-fu film fan - woeful acting and tone that said the director had absolutely no idea what feel he wanted for the film, were too huge an obstacle to over-come.

This film will doubtless change it's name to Broken... something else in an effort to hide from the fact that it's an appalling bag of shite, but it shall forever be Broken and you'd be better off saving your pound for a McCheeseburger... which I'm sure you could at least get through.
