Movie Reviews

Laugh out loud terrible
David Troast Jr. | MD | 02/16/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This film is absoulutely horrendous. The acting is of the lowest caliber that I have personally ever seen. My favorite part is when the dude is pointing a gun at the kids, and when they show his front, he's holding a machine gun, but when they show from behind, he's holding an uzi. WTF?!?! I think giving this film one star is giving it too much credit, but I couldn't give it negative infinity, so one will have to do. So terrible, it's hilarious. Anyone who has an opinion that isn't the same about this film, well congratulations, you are one of the few people on this planet whose opinion is wrong."
Cheap, Hilarious Trash

"Wow, where should I begin with this review? Should I first express my amazement at how any of the other reviewers could actually be serious in giving this movie a positive review or should I describe every aspect of its putridity to the T?Maybe I'll just start with the plot. To sum it up fairly simply, two martial arts academies spend most of the movie preparing their students for a kickboxing match against one another in the coming summer. One academy is cheap and tries to sabotage the other in an attempt to defeat them in the upcoming tournament and obtain documents which will give them the right to shut down that academy and expand their own with corporate sponsoring. I suppose the movie fluctuates in and out of laughably horrible moments of low-class acting with scenes of some of the "bad" students trying to pick on their rivals, and needless to say, the upcoming tournament is a complete joke. (A win is given for 2 solid blows??) This plot is completely unnecessary, it evokes no emotion other than disgust and anger for having watched the film, and it is pretty much a compilation of random events and endless (not to mention pointless) subplots that add up to nothing. (In case you actually care to know, the good guys win the tournament and the day?? YAY!) Though it may sound redundant based on what other reviews are saying, this movie seriously has the absolute worst acting that I have ever seen. There are times where you can be almost certain that some of the actors are looking away and reading their lines from the script. The fact that most of the dialouge is slow and has absolutely no emotion is evidence of this. I cannot even begin to understand why this movie was widely distributed, and for that matter I can't see who in their right mind would even consider making a movie with such a horrid plot. Nevertheless, the movie is good for lots of laughs, but if you were to watch this movie I'd recommend you watch it blindfolded. That way, you can laugh at all of the idiotic vocal blunders of these rent-a-actor's while saving yourself the anguish of actually having to see them and subject yourself to their embarrassingly ridiculous fight scenes."
Hilariously bad

"I remember reading about this movie in a recent article on in list of the "top ten best worst movies of all time." I then saw that it was on one of the movie channels, and decided to see for myself how bad it really was. Well, this movie is just terrible, maybe the worst I have ever seen. But it has some sort of sick, twisted entertainment value to it which is why I gave it 2 stars. I almost feel bad laughing because I'm pretty sure some of the actors in this movie are mildly retarded. If you're looking for something funny to rent, this movie is always in stock. The fight scenes are embarassingly bad, just like the acting and writing. Basically, it's fat ugly white kids running around a screen for 90 minutes flailing around and saying retarded, forced jokes. They also have a guy who looks like Derrick Greene from Sepultura in the fight scene toward the end.Wanna know the scary part? This was only 10th on somethingawful's best worst list. That means there's 9 movies out there that are worse than this one. Scary huh?"
Simple Fun

"The acting was bad, the plot was simple but it was like watching a stage play - and an immensely entertaining one at that. This isn't serious watching but it is ALOT of fun!"
