Brief Synopsis – A futuristic cop who is an expert kung fu fighter travels back in time to fight Hitler and stop him from destroying the future.

My Take on it – I was a bit shocked when this film was recommended to me because I had absolutely no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t really like it.

I’m not and have never been a real fan of kung fu or any kind of martial arts films for that matter, but I figured that it must be worth at least 30 minutes of my time for this short film.

I must say tho that I was correct and this really wasn’t my kind of movie but I did like the plethora of 80’s refences that were thrown in all over the place.

They even over-used the whole 80’s corny dialogue used in action flicks (see quote above for an example) whoch mad ethings a bit more fun.

The problem for me with this film tho is the fact that the plot is all over the place and not very consistent.

They got the whole 80’s feel correct, but that’s about all I can say that I really enjoyed.

Basically, if you like this kind of film and are an 80’s fan like myself, perhaps you can spare the 30 minutes to watch it on youtube just for the laughs.

I have read that there is a sequel planned for this, but I can’t say that I’m gonna try to make sure to see it as soon as possible; perhaps some day…

Bottom Line – Not really my kind of film, but I liked the 80’s references galore. The plot is quite silly and is mostly just kung fu fighting, but it has such an 80’s feel for it that it’s hard to dismiss the film completely.  If you’re looking for a nice laughable action film for 30 minutes of your time, you probably can’t go wrong with this.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Most of the characters’ voices were intentionally dubbed over. Some of the actors were non-English speakers reciting the lines phonetically. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy
