Correct Title is .357 Magnum
30 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0389711/ for other reviews of this horrible film. Here is the review I did there: I saw this film once as the opener to "Blue Collar" - no idea why the theater booked it. Maybe they thought it was "Magnum Force."

Every possible thing that could be wrong with a film is here - bad acting, bad camera, bad sound, bad script, bad props, bad effects, bad fights, bad squibs, bad locations, bad directing, even bad credit roll!

The plot involves a cult of criminal "sort-of ninja warriors" who use .357 Magnum pistols to do crimes and attack other bands of pistol totin' ninja warriors. Some scenes are supposedly shot in Japan, but it is actually San Francisco Chinatown with the film flipped over so they drive on the wrong side of the road. At least they knew that cars actually do that in Japan - probably the only thing they got correct.

As reviews of other Nick Miller productions on IMDb have noted, there is such low quality in every aspect of the film it is hard to actually figure out the plot. Anyway, lots of people get shot (often at close range and suffering multiple ketchup wounds) yet manage to continue to wander through the film, drive sports cars and do other nonsensical things, pretending to be in a movie. Even the "sexy bits" with Go-Go Dancers and strippers seemed like they were just thrown in to the final cut without a thought.

When the credits finally rolled (Sound by Bob, Camera by Joe, etc.) the audience was shouting at the screen, throwing empty pop-corn boxes and cups in disgust and demanding their money back. (This was a $1.50 matinée double feature.)
