Description: Here’s yet another reason why Asian cinema in the 70’s and 80’s just can’t be beat! This Hong Kong/South-East Asian trash-fest was produced by Joseph Lai and Betty Chan in 1987 and what a fun, exploitive ride it is! A man goes on a bloody rampage bumping off the crime organization that murdered his family, raped his daughter and caused him mucho pain. He meets up with a special forces soldier who supplies him with his weapons and takes them all to hell! He kills them off one by one (or ambushes them in small groups) by stabbing them, shooting them, using homemade bombs and other violent tactics. This film is a lot of fun with lots of gritty violence and trash including brutal beating, nudity, rape (including a gang rape scene), trash talk (plenty of “Bitch”, “Bastard” and “Whore” remarks are made) and cheesy fights scenes that just had me laughing my ass off! This baby needs to be seen to really be enjoyed as a description simply does not do it justice. Man, they don’t make them like this anymore!
