"Joseph needs you."

A hilariously inept martial arts action movie full of old-school, low budget charm. When a businessman is attacked and crippled by a rival company, he calls on his old army buddies to avenge him and find out who's responsible. The action scenes are laughably bad, but they're plentiful and fun to watch, and the film never tries to be anything more than it is. It features a couple of nice car stunts, a handful of admittedly funny gags, several naked breasts (it was the 80's, after all), a smattering of over-the-top kung fu sound effects, and a hilariously awkward porno jazz soundtrack. It's also amusing that Russell Johnson dubbed Jeff Risk's lines. A guilty pleasure from a simpler time.
