Lobotomy without surgery
21 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

Ever wanted a lobotomy but are either afraid of surgery or you just haven't been able to prove your psychiatrist that you need one? Well, no problem, just try to find this "Firecracker" or "Naked Fist" on video (or DVD if someone's been crazy enough to release one).

I love martial arts films, really do. Chackie Chan and Bruce Lee are quite common in my DVD collection and I always try to look for other genre classics. Having such a cult status, "Naked Fist" got me excited, even though the bare title made me worry - Naked Fist sounded awful lot like a porn film. And when the film started, I was STILL afraid it was a porn film. The looks, the acting skills; Pure exploitation quality. And actually the script is VERY close to porn films, too; Actors drop a few lines of dialog, then comes the action sequence. After that they switch the scene, drop a few lines of dialog and start another action sequence. This pattern is repeated all the way to the end. That wouldn't be bad for cult film, though, if the plot was any good or had any reasonable sense. Poor cutting makes things worse, as I honestly had no darn clue what the heck they were fighting for this time. Just insane hustle. The choreography wasn't near great, either.

First I feared it was a porn film. After an hour of it I started to hope it WAS a porn film.

After all this, you possibly wonder why I gave it TWO points. The only thing I enjoyed was Nonong Buencamino's insane retro-trip soundtrack; The score was just like from Commodore 64 era video game classics, like "International Karate +". Sadly the score gets constantly overrun by horrible punch noises - or noise, they seem to use same sample for every 200+ punches in the flick.

But hey; If you STILL want a lobotomy, have go!
