Movie Info

When the Burbank Karate Club embarks upon a relaxing cruise, the last thing they expect to encounter is hippie smugglers, white slavery, and man-eating monks looking to raise Karate masters up from the grave, but they do in this lively and decidedly off-beat and campy Hong Kong martial arts adventure. Much of the film is comprised of footage from Roger Corman's 1978 horror film Piranha. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

It's cheap; it's tawdry; it's vulgar; and it's almost watchable in a cheesy sort of way.

Audience Reviews for Raw Force (Kung Fu Cannibals)

Possibly the greatest film of all time. Seeing this is kind of like seeing the Godfather for the first time, only with more wacky asides. Kung Fu, evil cannibalistic monks who laugh evilly and clap and grin and disgraced ninja and samurai zombies make this a sure fire winner. Add to that a craaaaazy Hitler lookalike and swingin' seventies folk and I weep when I think that the TO BE CONTINUED card at the end was never followed up on. I mean, there's over 10 hours of LOTRs for movie lovers, but only 85 minutes of this? There is no justice. And also, who the eff is that in Cameron Mitchell's actor picture? He was the Toolbox Murderer for cryin out loud. C'mon Flixster, show some respect! And also do something about that "Stop watching bad movies" bi-heading you got, there's some folk who loves 'em... and (segue back to original topic) they'll love this one for certain. It's awesome to the extreme!

This is a bad movie but it's really great if you're into Grindhouse type flicks. The dialogue is weird and funny, and it's only 86mins but the middle drags alot but has alot of weird dialogue to keep it going. It really all hangs in the last 30mins or so when the monks, criminals, zombies, and touring martial arts people all come to a head.
