Goofs

When Shuko and the gang are in his office listening to the computer read the information on the Lee brothers, it says Billy is 17 and Jimmy is 18. Right before the Lee brothers fight the gangs in the junk yard there is a closeup of one of the gang members of the Clowns reading the Lee's information. It is says Jimmy was born on 2/24/90 and Billy was born on 2/17/92. If the movie takes place in 2007 that would make Jimmy 17 and Billy 15. See more »

It's cheesy, but remember, cheese is good too.
6 August 2002 | by Skeletors_HoodSee all my reviews

Ok, it's not an Oscar winner, but few films are. It is a campy flick, but it's not the wanna-poke-your-eyes-out-to-stop-the-pain campy, but rather in the realm of a guilty pleasure.

In agreement with an earlier post, this was not supposed to be a film that took itself seriously. Notably, the action was on par with any other martial arts movie being made, and the script had a bunch of smart-assy humor (which I must admit that I'm a big sucker for). It's meant to be a fun film, and that was the end result.

As far as a video game movie is concerned, it's not the worst ever made...Mario Bros is still the king, with Street Fighter in a close second, and Final Fantasy in third place. So you see, there are worst movies that have been made.

And folks, I'm not ashamed to admit that I have the DVD for this film in my collection.
