Audience Reviews for Tattoo Connection

I give this film a seven because it's just so much fun to watch. The acting is truly diabolical but Jim Kelly is just the coolest martial artist to ever hit the screen. The dubbing, editing and plot are really bad and the story at points doesn't even make sense. "Well then, how could you think it's worth seven precious stars?" I hear you ask. It worth seven because it's really, really funny, full stop. For instance, there is a scene where where the evil boss rips off a womans (who happens to be about three mens girlfriend!?) dress. The camera then zooms in to a closeup of her breasts and then the boss' face and then the breasts and then the eyes, the breasts, the eyes and then he throws her to the bed and gets it on and then we see... a formula 1 racecar... If you like martial arts flicks then get this film have a couple of glasses of your favourite booze and settle down with this movie. It's like a spoof of martial arts movies of the time and some of Jim Kelly's move are pretty good. It's actually way before it's time. Pure comedy gold.

This is my first Jim Kelly Film for review, I remember seeing him in a drive-In Movie or two, Cool handed actor who was well liked in Japan and the far West. The movie itself is one of the few old school kung fu movies that made some sense. My version was 87 Min long and released by Diamond Entertainment, most reviews show the movie as being 90 minutes long. The ending on mine was just that the ending, just stopped with scene at the airport, so what happen to the diamond that Jim was after, guess you better get the 90 minute version to find out.
