A Movie So Bad It's Genius
24 April 2006 | by djmanifestoSee all my reviews

Simply, this movie is a treat. Ron Van Clief is perhaps the most underrated and purest action star ever, excluding Chuck Norris.

Most memorable dubbed line: "You're just a bunch of bitches" (Followed by group pimp slapping) Most what in the hell moment? : 20 minute of needless expose on heroine smuggling to introduce film.

Most what in the hell moment II the sequel? : Jet ski bonanza boat fight, and why did we fight those guys anyway? Also See: (Pick any random scene in the movie and ask questions of relevance to plot or storyline)

Not only does this movie teach aspiring directors what not to do, but it also subtly plays on this by asking? You A-Hole, isn't this one of the greatest martial arts movies ever made? ... And you respond, well actually yes... in fact it is you're the one who is the err... (gulping noise)... are the one having the last laugh, damn you Way Of The Black Dragon, damn you bitches!"
