Lundgren, Lee (RIP) and Tagawa, all in the same movie? How am I only just watching this?! Seriously campy and seriously good fun with a ton of quotes that I can't wait to use in public. Probably came a decade or two too late.
Somewhat entertaining, but really stupid, and it's quite pathetic how hard the movie tries to make Lundgren into the most virile man ever, most notably when poor Brandon Lee awkwardly comments on Lundgren's supposedly large genitalia.
Yet another action comedy which most users here don't understand; if the film had taken its silly premise seriously, then it would have sucked. But by playing it with a wink and nod, and real humor, they can concentrate on the quality fight scenes and laughter. It's well-paced, fun, and manages to cover up any acting flaws with humor. A very worthwhile little action flick.
Another one of my favorite bad movies of all time, this thing has points through the roof for its use of cool action scenes, and those scenes mostly involving Brandon Lee. A cast of people you will recognize from other films they've been in Cary Tagawa for instance from Mortal Kombat and Sab Shimono from Ninja Turtles. Oh and Tia Carrere gets naked! WOOHOO! Chalk up another one here for a night of bad films.
Brandon Lee (RIP) gives one of the campiest performances I've ever seen in this cop/buddy flick which sees Dolph Lundgren dressing up like a samurai to machine gun down endless hordes of yakuza. Lee actually utters the words "You have the biggest dick I've ever seen on a man" to Dolph. Ultra cheesy lines, a bunch of huge brawls, and more squibs than you can shake a stick at. The Lundgren-Tia Carrere sex scene is the funniest 20 seconds of your life.
This is not a good film by any stretch of the imagination but it's better than most B-movies simply because of the absurd interaction between the two co-stars. You can tell both Lundgren and Lee as well as Cary Tagawa were having fun with their roles here and no one took it seriously. The "Japanese" Yakuza are also completely over the top. If there was a movie that symbolized violent 90's trash cinema then this would easily serve as an example.
