The only reason I give this movie a one star is due to the 80's style martial arts action that I've enjoyed through the years. The plot is typical with a crystal clear, clean-cut hero and an overly obvious villain. Everything about this movie oozes 80's cheese action with plenty of fisticuffs to go around!! Unfortunately, the transfer to DVD is HORRIBLE to say the least. The picture quality looks like someone recorded their poorest VCR copy (the one you lent out to all your friends and when you finally get it back, the insides have been jammed back into its case!) onto DVD. On top of this, the sound transfer is barely recognizable and you have to turn your volume almost all the way up to figure out the dialogue. This movie would only be bought by the hardest of hardcore collectors. It's a shame that a fun movie like this gets a bad rap due to such a terrible transfer. Unless you can bear the horrendous quality of this sorry excuse for a DVD or a better transfer is available, skip it!!!!
