User Reviews

it was great!......maybe..........
29 January 2001 | by plantostickthatSee all my reviews

well well well.....

How could this movie fail?

with benny the jet, and a host of other talented kickboxers, this film was sure to be great......right...

(Sarcasm kicks in here)

It was

It was truly excellent

The best part was the story, with characters who did nothing for the whole movie except kick each other. And the kicking was great too, simply because of the fight editing. An experienced editor would show one kick when the actor did one kick but this editor made the fighting 5 times better by replaying all the punches and kicks 5 times. Pure genius. This way, he has achieved his goal of completely confusing the viewer (how is that possible in a fight scene), because you dont know whether or not the punches are replayed or the real thing. So, you might as well fast forward throught the fight scenes because they are too mentally taxing (trying to figure out who hits each other). Then you can watch the story in all its glory.

In my ignorance, i couldn't really follow the twisted plot, but it seems that billy's dad was killed in the desert, so now he can gather together all these kickboxers at random and get them into a ring, where he can proceed to kill all of them, even thought he knows they were innocent. This way, there is a lot of killing which makes no sense at all. This also gives the director an opportunity to throw in a sex scene. Great movie.

(Sarcasm stops here)

Crap movie. Why the hell did he kill all the people when he knew they were innocent? I thought he was the good guy!

3rd worst movie ever

After bloodsucking freaks and bloodfight (Notice how all the crap movies start with blood)
