“A very transparent excuse for a string of fight sequences, but I’m not complaining.” – Far East Films
When a masked kung-fu serial killer (played by the great Darren Shahlavi) sets his sights on a martial arts champions like ECW champion Rob Van Damme, there are only two cops with all the right moves to crack the case: Gary Daniels (FIST OF THE NORTH STAR) and Chuck Jeffreys (SUPERFIGHTS). The former is a disgraced FBI “mind-hunter”, the latter a magic-obsessed detective; divided they’re hapless, together they’re gonna be responsible for some of the most incredible action to ever be showcased at a Laser Blast screening!
Helmed by Seasonal Film’s unsung master of the US-Hong-Kong co-production Tony Leung Siu-Hung (NO RETREAT, NO SURRENDER 3: BLOOD BROTHERS), every frame collides with spectacular entertainment, from delirious camp performances to spontaneous giallo-lighting, and a whole heap of expertly choreographed and bone-crushing martial arts mayhem. Within the first 12 minutes, you’ll witness the evisceration of a combatant via discrete blows from a shelf, a bottle, picture frame, and plate-glass window to the face. And to think that the cast and crew had to endure the relative anonymity of the straight-to-video shelf for all their hard work, while vanilla contemporaries like RUSH HOUR dominated the box office.
On May 9th, history will be corrected, for we THE LASER BLAST FILM SOCIETY will celebrate its deranged greatness and meet each punch, kick and butterfly flip with the applause it so richly deserves.
