| One of the funnest movies of all time
The acting is awful, the script is atrocious, and the premise is ridiculous. It's also some of the most fun I've ever had watching a movie.

For one, nothing in this movie seems to take itself seriously. It's jam packed with so many terrible action movie clichés that it wouldn't surprise me at all if the director had made it as a parody. Watch this one with a couple of witty friends and you'll have a blast giving it an MST 3k treatment. The jokes at the movie's expense are really obvious.

Second, as bad as this movie is, there are a few things it does pretty well. For example, the token minority sidekick (Jeffreys) who speaks with a pronounced lisp and delivers his lines like a jive-talking' robot nonetheless has some impressive athletic skills. As a consequence this movie does boast some pretty cool fight scenes. The special effects are often over the top and goofy just like it should be in an early-90s action movie.

If you're bored on a weeknight and need a laugh, I'd highly suggest picking this one up. I got it in a bargain basket at a local DVD store for $3.
