Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Those who have longed to see a killer gorilla get kicked in the groin will have their wishes answered with this silly but likeable movie that's a cross between Dr No and Enter The Dragon. Cop Melanie Vincz and two other well-endowed pals, enter island lord Angus Scrimm's martial arts tournament, but their real objective is to stop his dastardly plans to rule the world. B-movie director Jim Wynorski doesn't go for all-out parody, preferring a more restrained approach. Ample nudity isn't so subtle, however. Surprisingly, the special effects, art direction, and set design are fairly well accomplished, giving the movie at times an almost epic tone to it.
