    A movie within a movie, created to spoof the martial arts genre
    Certificate: 12
    Running Time: 78 mins
    Retail Price: £17.99
    Release Date:

    Writer/director Steve Oedekerk (Jimmy Neutron, The Nutty Professor) kicks the karate film genre up a notch by inserting new scenes, new dialogue - and himself - into an obscure Hong Kong martial arts flick from the 1970s. The result is a ridiculously funny, must-be-seen-to-be-believed movie! In order to avenge his family`s death, a legendary warrior named "The Chosen One" (Oedekerk) wanders the countryside in search of the murderous Master Pain, also known as Betty. Filled with fist-flying action, incredible special effects, and outrageous Kung foolishness, this martial arts mockery delivers knockout laughs from beginning to end!

    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    Director and star Steve Oedekerk took an old kung foo movie and inserted himself into it and dubbed over all the voices to make a crazy comedy.

    picture quality is good in places and really bad in others due to the movie he used was so old.

    Sound is pretty good with some funny dubbing

    Extras are also good, we get 3 commentaries or different versions of the film anyway, deleted scenes and more.

    Overall if you like crazy/stupid comedys (like me) then this will make you laugh all the way through, worth watching.
