Wow, I'm speechless.
After viewing this movie, which was purchased for six bucks, I'm really not sure what to say. There were times where I felt like turning it off, but there must have been some subliminal messages telling me not to. I'm still shocked I watched the whole thing. The fight scenes are ok, they get better as the movie progresses, the plot/script on the other hand...oh man. I think they just made it as they went along and as they were filming random people were like "hey can I have a part?" and the director was like "sure, you are now Man with Scythe, and your motivation is that Jackie Chan killed your son and know you want to kill him, so you are just gonna be walking around and happen to meet Jackie who has just completed his training where he learned all but three of his techniques from reading a book." All in all I think everyone should see this movie...once.
