Ultra-conservative Chuck Norris wakes up to find himself in the gay capital of the world and looks in the mirror to reveal that he is covered in thick curly hair from head to toe! After he gets some clothes on, he shakes the cob webs off and remembers that this is just another day in the life of a drug king/murderer/molester/bank robber/racist/briber/mafia lord/kung fu master! It is not just Norris, Frisco the entire town is corrupt with the police beating confessions out of the innocent, excessive force, deaths in holding cells made to look like suicide, assassination attempts on witnesses, taking candy away from babies, and the village people getting away with public affection. The only un-corruptable cop around is a Chinese guy (Don Wong) who just happens to be a communist/martial arts master! Chuck fails to get him on his side as he starts to fear that his back will soon get shaved. Like the star trek episode "mirror, mirror" we get to see the alternate reality evil Chuck importing drugs to America instead of kicking them out. Where did we go wrong? The makers of Slaughter in San Francisco attempt to show the stone cold truth. Using Kim Jong Ill Sr. as technical adviser, we get a rare chance to see America as it really is. Made over a weekend for approximately 350 hong kong dollars, Norris laughs his way through this Ed Wood approved masterpiece. Its all action and unintentional hilarity from beginning to end with great choreographed wall to wall fights. The goofy dubbing capsizes the already sinking ship as any chance of redemption is shattered when the producers realize an academy award is impossible. vhs is cropped, dubbed, mono english audio. dvds available in France and Italy widescreen non-english versions or a full screen english version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic From Black Belt Theater Days... June 23, 2012
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Ok a few things first.

This is a Hong Kong production so think Shaw Brothers / Kung Fu Theater stuff. Secondly this is a Lo Wei film, he's the guy who made Bruce Lee's first two films crappier than they needed to be.

With that understood, this is a lot of fun. Chuck Norris is a bad guy with typical Kung Fu Theater dubbing.

Unlike most "pretty bad" Kung Fu films, Chuck manages to show some technique and polish, enough that his spinning back kick combo was clipped along with Heroes of the East and 5 Deadly Venoms for the intro for Black Belt Theater.

So funny I about pee'd myself. Horrible acting at its best! They dubbed even Chuck's voice! The editing is also the best of the worst. Oh, yeah, there is some okay martial arts. So entertained I almost forgot. Bad movie night GOLD!
