A kung fu horror comedy by Sammo Hung with the kind of fantastic and hilarious martial arts comedy action that is his hallmark. This movie is great!!! So much fun and completely ridiculous, down to the wizard battle at the end where Sammo Hung’s character is possessed by a series of of beings, giving him the opportunity to do some hilarious physical comedy while being a complete badass.
An outdoorsy woman and her nerdy boyfriend (who is not only a biology phd candidate but also a serial mansplainer) collide with a violent criminal and the girlfriend he’s on the run with end up trapped in a gas station by a bizarre and deadly parasite. This is a fairly classic siege style horror flick, maintaining the tension through to the very end. I enjoyed it despite wishing for the death of the nerd throughout the entire thing; also I learned something. It’s important to consider who you’re spending time with and whether you’d be okay trapped in a horror movie with them.
I don't know what rating to give it. As a friend said, it sort of demeans it to describe it in terms of bad or good - it's big dumb fun on a grand scale, it's Flash Gordon (minus Queen, which is really the only thing that could have made this movie even more fun) with some Star Wars, Dune and Brazil thrown in for good measure. The romance is laughable, the costumes are amazing and it's still a far better movie than Interstellar.
