It goes without saying this movie, is without a doubt, terrible. But, you can really tell they tried hard to make the most bad-ass, action packed, kung fu movie ever, and for some reason, it works. It is an absolute blast to watch, especially with friends. It takes us back to why we make and enjoy movies.
