Alternate Versions

Despite the UK cinema version being uncut with a PG certification, the UK video version was cut by 10 secs by the BBFC to remove some headbutts and blows during the fight scenes for a 12 certification. In 2015, the BBFC waived the 10 secs of cuts for a 12 certification DVD/Bluray release. 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.
