You have to keep only one thing in mind: Dorf (oops--Dolph) Lundgren as someone who speaks fluent Japanese is no more ridiculous than Dolph Lundgren as someone who speaks fluent English. And the vision of Dolph Lundgren running around in a hakama, happi coat, and handband, while waving a katana in one hand, is so hysterical that it's worth the couple of bucks to rent the movie.
And great flubs, too, like the scene in which the evil villain is mashing someone up in an auto crusher, and we get a clear shot of the dummy's head in the car, between scenes of the potential victim yelling for help. Rarely to we get to see such blatantly bad film editing. Or the two nude scenes in which the body double has breasts four times the size of the heroine's, and they can't even make it look like it's the same woman. Or the point at which poor Brandon Lee has to compliment Dolph on the size of his, well, you just have to hear it.
Whoever choreographed the Japanese sword fight scene, however, needs to be spanked.
