A film of cinematic rarity in that it transcends its own badness, becoming a fascinating time-capsule into '80's definitions of wealth and machismo. It's smile-ear-to-ear enjoyable, and dumber than that one dude that f&*ked those other dudes in prison; a kung-fu directed with a Southern drawl and T&A by a guy named Rowdy. A minor gem.
Exaggerated through the roof and clichéd beyond the point of good humor. It's greasy haired muscles, blondes with no panties and good 'ol rock n' roll capture some kind of 80's vibe as the only coherent and amusing aspect of the entire film. Now, I don't mind authors not aiming high, but even less forgive their complete lack of imaginativeness just because.
80s B-movie that is delightfully over-the-top in every way. A tale as old as time itself: a mysterious hero who's reputation precedes comes to a town/city/home/school that is down on it's luck and in need of protection. The whole this is pretty remarkable in the best/worst way you can imagine. Watching it on VHS was the highlight of the experience. Not to be taken seriously and quite forgettable but still fun.
