June Challenge film 13. I checked this out on a recommendation from someone and because it was by the same director as Miami Connection. Sure enough, it has a lot of the charm (namely the awful dialogue and acting) of that movie, but it doesn't quite click as much as that did. This is most likely due to not having the whole band element to it. The highlight of the movie for me was when the group of heroes are accosted by a baseball bat wielding 5'2 overweight white dude with bleached blond hair who happens to be wearing a half shirt. There are a few classic moments like that. Overall, this was a solidly entertaining cheesefest.
watched as it is from same director as Miami Connection. awesome but it almost makes zero sense.
This film is absolutely incomprehensible and shouldn't even deserve as favorable of a rating as I gave it but for some reason, there is something about this movie that well, speaks to me.
The climax is handled phenomenally and if it were attached to a better movie then this movie would probably be more enjoyable. Don't get me wrong, this film does have a few moments of unintentional hilarity, but its slow pace and absent story telling make the film extremely inconsistent and nowhere near as entertaining as a film like "Miami Connection".
For whatever reason, I adore 80s high school gang films. I love the punk look and the idea that when nothing's left, one must be forced to…
Classic story of a gang of martial artists in their 30s just trying to survive high school. Extremely endearing, with great relationship drama, turf wars, and lots of impressive fighting. A pleasure of a film.
Amusingly awful actioner that follows a high school gang that looks like they're not only too old for high school, but should be taking continuing education courses at the local community college. You know you're watching a ridiculous film when the lead looks as old as (if not older) the actress playing his mother. It's not as hilarious as Godfrey Ho's UNDEFEATABLE, but it has some laughs.
Tony, the 30-year old looking Korean immigrant, is getting in all kinds of gang related trouble at his high school for refusing to join the local Korean gang. With the help of his 40-year old looking classmate Young they put up a good fight when under attack. On the side to earn some money they act as security guards, but when one gig goes sour and they end up stealing a drug dealer's money to use for good they will have to fight their way out of the mess.
Woo-sang Park, aka Richard Park, who would go on to direct the hilariously awesome Miami Connection after this film has a gift with writing characters that are straight out of Sunday…
one of the worst films i've ever seen.
