Martial Arts from Mikels
17 November 2017 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Mission: Killfast (1991)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

A bunch of bad guys are selling mass weapons and other destructive things to other bad guys so martial arts expert Cheng-Wu Yang must come out of retirement and track them down.

Ted V. Mikels made several films but all of them had very small budgets. His film range from straight forward thrillers like STRIKE ME DEADLY to sex pictures like DR. SEX to dramas like THE BLACK KLANSMAN and of course the various exploitation pictures like THE CORPSE GRINDERS, BLOOD ORGY OF THE SHE-DEVILS and THE ASTRO ZOMBIES. Mikels obviously knew how to work with a low-budget and rarely did he ever try to hide the fact that he was working without much money.

MISSION: KILLFAST isn't a very good movie and in fact it's quite poor. With that said, I must admit that I admired Mikels' work here because the budget is so low that it would be impossible for this story to work yet the film really doesn't look too bad. Yes, the cheapness is there but at least Mikels tried to deliver some real action scenes and some of them are rather big as well. Does it look like the next DIE HARD? Of course not but, again, look at the budget.

The performances are pretty bad as you'd expect but Yang at least does a nice job with his action scenes. He certainly knows the martial arts quite well but he isn't too photogenic and he just can't become too memorable on the screen.
