Yet more IFD madness!
4 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Regular Eastern cinematic bad guy, Philip Ko stars in this typically baffling IFD affair as a hit-man who's brother happens to be a cop (yep, complications are very much on the cards here!) Of course, this being an IFD flick with Ko in it, one thing is immediately guaranteed; a rough sex scene(!) Just what the hell is it with Ko and such sequences in these flicks? As it happens we're not exactly given much chance to ponder such questions, as the ostensibly contractually requisite scene transpires within the very first minute of the films running time!!!!

The rest of the film is a decidedly confusing mess (as we've come to expect from Joseph Lai's infamous production company) involving Ko hired to take out three targets including fellow regular bad guy John Ladalski (who it is revealed, has a somewhat sinisterly themed predilection for performing body painting and photography upon hapless damsels!) Whilst this plot is simple enough, matters become a more thoroughly head scratching affair when another tale of drug dealing and murder kicks into action involving two crime syndicates (or at least that's what I made of it anyway).

Still, to be fair, do any of these films make even a jot of sense? Of course not! – And that's precisely why they're so much fun! With this in mind therefore, one has only to simply sit back and enjoy the demented spectacle that is on display. And the highlights in this particular entry?

OK, brace yourself because here we have a rather notable combination of vaginal drug smuggling, a shower head drowning(!), torture by baby turtles(!!), a transvestite assassin(!!!) and a dog sniffing women's bottoms(!!!!) Yes, it's all here, every ingredient one could surely ever want for in a film……erm…….well maybe.
