Quite simply one of the best bad movies ever made. It has it all... Karate, break dancing, shiity script, wooden acting, Los Angeles doubling for Seattle, Jean Claude Van Damme, and the ghost of Bruce Lee (played by a badly dubbed actor). What's not to love??
Another one where I can't understand the good reviews... There's potential here, but it's wasted on a story that doesn't build to anything terribly exciting. And I'm so tired of seeing horror characters do stupid shit like, say, splitting up. Oy.
I am baffled by the good reviews... It's slow as molasses, the characters make idiotic choices that defy belief, and nothing is explained when the movie's over. Ti West is the most overrated filmmaker of his generation.
Felt mixed about this one -- my inner Blaxploitation movie lover enjoyed it, but my liberal white person was a little unnerved by the slave-sploitation aspect of it all (and heavy use of the "N-word.") As with most Tarantino films, it's well-written bit also over-written.
