Terrible but considering the budget, I can forgive it....a bit.
24 February 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Kung Fu Joe" is a super-low budget film about a cool guy who decides, against his better judgment, to help the police. While $150,000 might sound like a lot of money, for a movie it is nothing....absolutely nothing. And, it appears as if most of the budget was spent on wigs and fake mustaches. The film is a STRANGE thing--a 70s blacksploitation film made in the 21st century and starring all white guys--including Joe himself. The problem is that it just isn't very funny. I know the folks tried their best and for a super-low budget film, it's actually a lot better than you'd expect. Heck, Hollywood makes MUCH worse films with budgets 50 times larger!! Given more experience, better writing and more money, these filmmakers COULD amount to something....but it still looks like they need time and experience. Good luck.
