| FOB's Attack!
What a movie! It's no wonder that martial arts movies have for years been stereotyped as crap, this movie is the archetypal example. Still, it's great fun. If you want to see a movie where the heroes have thick accents to accompany their less-than-stellar acting, this is the one. Very little plot-wise makes sense, but this may be one of the few films that deals with the predicaments of Asian-American youth in any way, not that it does so realistically. Jun Chong is great as FOB leader Young and Phillip Rhee is amusing in an early performance. The sequence in the liquor store featuring the thug with the giant flute is simply classic! How did these people think to include such things?!? To the film's credit, the fight sequences are actually well done, and karate legend Bill Wallace adds a touch of class with his presence, though I wonder what he was doing in this movie. If you can find this movie anywhere, do watch it. It will encourage you to make a film of your own.
