What do you get when you cross a bad film with an even worse one?
Answer: A big ol' pile o crap.
In one plot, a Chinese couple move in together, but the boy secretly wants the daughter of a top business magnate, and when he tries to kill his current partner to get what he wants, she isn't happy.. in a co-joined storyline, a young tousled hair cop has his buddy cruelly shot down and swears revenge, but is forced to quit the police when his corrupt superior takes him 'off the case'. From then on we get random scenes of bad guys being sent to kill our renegade as he defeats them repeatedly. Neither storyline has anything to do with the other, and were obviously combined for reasons of padding. Ho hum.
Neither movie is in English, and the dubbing for both is particularly appalling.. The lead guy in the first one for instance has a very strong Aussie accent, and his lead love interest sounds like a spoilt little girl. It is almost impossible to listen to these grating voices without wanting to throw something at the telly, so best move anything heavy from the room. If you think that's bad though, wait till you see the cheesy action sequences in the next story. Sped up action and awful choreography abound, and the whole farrago is less convincing than a Saturday morning cartoon. If it's the violence that earnt it an 18 certificate, then the censors must be the kind of people who must still be scared by Inspector Gadget at the age of 30.
To complete the circle of ineptitude, both tales have notably stupid endings. Without 'spoiling' anything, the first story ends with a completely OTT scene at a church which so ludicrous it would be unbelievable just about anywhere.. but not here. As for the second, well this is the real kicker. A man has his head stuck in a tree , he's being bashed on the bonce and... THE END flashes on screen. No credits. Fade to black. WWHHAATT?! Oh dear. How sad. Never mind. It's film(s) like this that give B movies a bad name.. 1/10
