ITS AWSOME AND I LOVE IT!
11 January 2019 | by stellan-sjolinSee all my reviews

To be honest, this is most certainly not a good movie. But its is absolutley awsome and i love it! All the way over the top ridiculousness, glorious and cheesy beyond imagination! Its filled with more sfx (oh my! what sfx!) than actual fighting, but there is some of that as well.

Its well worth to take the time if you are intressted, id say its about a 50/50 chance you love or hate it. If youre into classic kung fu, the odds that you like it are slightly better, same if you like silly 80's horror movies ( this is completly diffrent, but yeah, trust me on this one ^^)
