Finally, we stumble across some truth in advertising. The PR for this DVD says that the film should never have been released, that it is too intense for children and dogs and is preposterous, ridiculous and patronizing all at the same time. After more than a decade of watching this very thing but without begin told about it in advance, we were culturally refreshed. This is the story of kung fu experts from outer space who come to a small town to farm. The farm is near the Canadian border so we're not really sure how anyone would have noticed but that's all part of the charm. There's spontaneous combustion for no apparent reason, teenagers trying to save the day, and plot holes the size of Glell Nab Tor. The acting is bad and so is the editing, principle photography, directing, sound and gaffing. However, since our copy still had the security device enclosed we were pretty ecstatic. What can we say, you have to see this for yourself to believe it. Just don't say we didn't warn you.
