Low Blow (1986)

aka Last Fight to Win, aka Deadly Weapon, aka Savage Sunday

How bad is it? Pretty typical very low budget martial arts film. No, worse than that.
Should you see it? If you're a fan of bad martial arts films.

Okay, I'm pretty blase' about this. Leo Fong has been in a few low-rent actioners and has modest talent in both martial arts and acting; here he plays a private detective who rescues a rich girl from a religious cult run by Cameron Mitchell. Troy Donahue shows up. Look for Billy "Tae Bo Infomercial" Banks in a fight. There's a lot of hoeing of fields and a lot of bad parking. There's a power saw to a car, a skull crushed by a foot and a dove butchered in a restaurant. There's bad 1980's synthesizer music, a long stretch where you wonder why the police aren't involved and a buff girl. All of that sounds better than it is.
