Tagline: ...Invaders of the Jade Tombs!

Plot: A group of martial arts students are en route to an island that supposedly is home to the ghosts of martial artists who have lost their honor. A Hitler lookalike and his gang are running a female slavery operation on the island as well. Soon, the two groups meet and all sorts of crazy things happen which include cannibal monks, piranhas, zombies, and more!

My rating:

Will I watch it again? No.

Because this is so dumb and idiotic, it's entertaining to a degree.  From the first couple of minutes you'll recognize this guy...

He's a cannibal monk that eats hot naked broads.  Really.  Say, that reminds me, there's a good deal of and out of the shower.

There's also a lot that could be trimmed. Prepare yourself for some reasonably entertaining padding. For example, the party scene on the boat lasts about twenty minutes and then another twelve minutes with action as the boat is attacked which leaves our kung fu ma-fuckas on a raft heading toward the island.  With as much wackiness as the posters promise, it doesn't deliver but it's still fun on that so bad it's good level.  Lower your expectations and you'll come out the other end relatively unscathed.  For as goofy as it is, though, you'll wonder why they didn't really go all the way out and get completely outrageous.  This is one of 20 awful movies you'll find on the Fortune 5 DVD set called Grindhouse Experience.  It's only worth having if you like watching shit movies.
