Possibly the worst movie ever...

This could actually be the worst movie I have seen, nay, endured.

Throw into the equation cliched characters (with terrible actors to play them),tired dialogue and a laughably over the top ending involving a gun toting sensei,and you have a film that could not belong to any confines other than that of made for TV and straight to video hell and is,as an aside,about one notch off being totally unwatchable.

This has got to be the absolute worst movie ever made.

The notional storyline is trite, a rehash of a rehash of a… Two rival kickboxing academies, one managed by a gung-ho survivalist type, the other owned by a sweet blonde, hold a kickboxing contest to decide which will remain in business and which will close.

The whole movie all of the fights are just sluggish, poorly choreographed, and above all else, EXTREMELY slow.

This is the worst movie ever made.

Worst movie in history....

The whole thing is just so predictable it's silly.

Yup I agree with the review above on some counts Yes the director/writer could be a genius but in truth this is the worst film I have ever seen, Some work buddies (Paul Mitchel Film) have seen this movie too and agree that as far as movies go this is a must see for anyone who thinks they have seen the worst movie ever think again.

But I'm glad I stopped because I witnessed one of the absolute worst movies I've ever seen in my life.

I find it mind boggling how some movies are able to make it to the big screen.

The storyline is cliche- two rival dojos go on a head-to-head competition in a survival of the fittest, with its star pupil in a brush with death accident and incapacitated.

We get treated to a mind numbmingly slow sword fight, in which the lady slices them both pretty good, after which they kind of just walk off.

About half way into it I got so bored, that I started wondering why this movie was ever made.

For starters, the grindingly predictable story about two rival kickboxing schools pitted against each other in a major martial arts competition offers zero surprises, with an ending that's signposted right from the start.

Seriously it was so obvious there where going slow because they had no idea what they where doing...
