See, They're Twins & Their Twin Mustaches Mean Business!
28 March 2011 | by shark-43See all my reviews

What fun. My Bad Movie group is constantly amazed when we can uncover a whole nother genre and/or filmmakers and the McNamara Twins are da bomb! Obviously very accomplished martial artists - they decided why not try and be action film stars as well - the heck with Van Damme or Chuck Norris. We're REAL identical twins! That's our gimmick, but sadly neither one of the twins can act. At ALL! One is dull and the other one is duller. Their mustaches give better performances than they do. We were howling at the horrible editing, terrible acting and cheesy dialogue. There'a great scene where one of the bad guys has once again snatched one of their girlfriends and is holding her around the neck. One of the twins has a crossbow and obviously if they really had a stunt coordinator, they could stage a scene where the arrow would take out the guy - just missing the girl by inches, but nope we cant possibly pull that off - so suddenly the bad guy lets go of the girls' neck with one hand and places it against a tree. Like - here - try and hit my flattened hand on this large tree - here's a target, Mr. Crossbow Hero - so the twin shoots his hand with an arrow - the bad guy pulls out the arrow and then....runs away. Yep. That's it. End of showdown. Plus the bad guy has a blond mohawk and always has a REAL short cigar in his mouth and his voice sounds like he's auditioning for Bluto in the Popeye cartoons. We loved this movie - for all the wrong/right reasons!!
