TREJO SMELLING FLOWERS? SERIOUSLY?,
This review is from: Lazarus Papers (DVD)
The is nothing like a "bad" Danny Trejo movie. And when I say "bad" I mean "good." Unfortunately this is just a bad Danny Trejo movie with no quotation marks. Danny plays an Eastern holy man/healer who likes flowers. He gets killed in the first scene, but unlike the movie, he doesn't completely die. He can't pass over because there is still work to do, so he occasionally resurrects and helps others along the way.
Danny is killed because his peaceful village, where young girls bathe topless in the stream, is raided by Gary Daniels to abduct girls for the sex trade. Meanwhile, John Edward Lee is getting ready to die and has a brief case full of money. He wants a woman. Together Danny and Lee fight against the bad guys (with some police help) to save Nana (Krystal Vee).
The film is rather boring. While there is killing, there are not any of the "walking tall" action one would expect in a Trejo film. This is far from a grindhouse, although it makes you think it started out as one. A rather lame role for Trejo in this weak action-drama. The film takes place in Pali, an imaginary Asian city/country near India. Might be an interesting film for Buddhists who are Trejo fans.
F-bomb, sexual situations, brief nudity.
