Godfrey Ho at his worst.
17 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

I've long held the belief that almost any film can be made bearable by featuring a few of the following: ninjas, dwarfs, gratuitous nudity, gore, monsters, cyborgs, explosions, big guns, kung fu. Godfrey Ho's Counter Destroyer (AKA Robo Vampire 3 Counter Destroy) is an exception to this rule, being an almost unwatchable mess despite the presence of several of the aforementioned elements.

The plot for the film is all over the place, presumably the result of Ho clumsily stitching together scenes from several unrelated movies, as is his wont. The story has something to do with a screenwriter called Joyce, who is working on a script for a film about the last emperor of China, but quite how ninjas, hopping vampires, a deadly female private eye, a silver lamé Robocop knock-off, and a ghostly child figure in proceedings is beyond me.

All that I am sure of is that, despite the complete and utter random lunacy throughout, the film is actually incredibly dull and a total waste of time-even worse than Robo Vampire 2: Devil's Dynamite (and that's saying something!).
