Full Impact (1993)

aka American Streetfighter 2: Full Impact

How bad is it? One version's worse than the other, but both are pretty terrible.
Should you see it? Yes, if you like bad martial arts films.

Gary Daniels plays a bounty hunter that used to be a cop. He tracks a serial killer of prostitutes, which leads to a lot of nakedness on film. The climactic fight scene is really long and rather silly (it reminds me of Peter Griffin fighting the giant rooster on Family Guy). The voices were added in post-production - as were some bad sound effects - and they don't synch well. The camerawork is often shaky and poorly focused. The plot is thin and has a lot of holes, especially if you see the version called AS2, which seems to be missing entire scenes. Some of the dialogue is quite funny, unintentionally.
