Storyline

Karate meets Kalashnikovs as the uncontrollable force and the immovable object are thrown together in this bloody hilarious action comedy! Hiro's a Tokyo cyber-punk Yakuza with a simple mission: smuggle a toilet made of pure heroin to New York City. If he fails his boss will stick his sword where the rising sun don't shine. Marco's a muscle mountain enforcer working for a family of ex-commandos from the Bosnian war. He's an entry-level thug with dreams of rising up the ranks. But in the Bosnian mob, promotion is spelled AK-47. When a bloody New York mob war erupts and Hiro and Marco snatch the toilet. It's worth millions - if they can find somebody who can decipher the Japanese chemistry formula. Wounded, hunted and dragging a 50-pound toilet made of heroin; they race around New York. Through sleazy alleyways, bouncer brawls, sniper shoot-outs and a biker war they're on a quest to find a Japanese chemist. Problem is Marco has a nasty habit of getting shot and Hiro is just looking for ... Written by Dean Bajramovic

Stupid Movie
14 January 2012 | by Movie-JaySee all my reviews

A really stupid Canadian movie that is assembled from the wreckage of other bad movies that think they're so clever but really aren't.

Russell isn't Tom Cruise. Maybe he'd be good enough as Cruise's stunt double? He's just another himbo.

I hate that crap like this seems to get made so easily while good movies have to suffer an exhausting process of getting greenlit because of all the morons in the world today.

Eating candy and making out in the dark while ignoring this movie is the only reason it should be on around you.

The buddy cop thing can work depending on the talents of its actors, but these are all stand-in types who appear to have been promoted into leads.

There are good Canadian movies out there, so skip this one.
