User Review

Cheesey 80's action brilliance!!!!!!!!!

Rating:

From the stilted dialogue, through the ridiculous storyline, the amazing
disco sequence and a rousing finale the sheer spirit of this FUN FUN FUN
movie shines through. Forget all the computer generated fights of today,
this how it was and should be. Over the top, funny, satisfying and
possible.
They don't make 'em like this anymore, and more's the shame.
