After the superstardom and early death of Bruce Lee, 20th Century Fox decided to cobble together a couple of theatrical feature films from this property, of which this 1974 effort is the first. The bulk of the film consists of four episodes crudely spliced together. Scattered throughout are bizarrely irrelevant fight scenes from other episodes, which make the already disjointed plotting quite surreal. The television image was cropped to make a widescreen film, which means the tops of heads and hats are lopped off the frame with alarming regularity.

That's pretty much happened with this semi decent turd of an action movie starring Denise Crosby (aka. Mrs.bitchy wife from Pet Semetary). The story goes nowhere and the acting is pretty sub par, what a surprise huh? I think this was just an excuse to use a bunch of random reject sci fi and horror movie costumes that no one had any use for.I'm not joking this movie has a cyborg,a samurai/ninja,a scientist,a cliche 80's mercenary, and some beast like person who form this like makeshift taskforce to fight a cyborg army. The main bad guy here is some weird evil scientist who makes mandroids or some shit...I kinda just gave up on this half way through. Watch at your own risk.

Ce film n'est fait que par des personnes dvoues la cause, aussi bien les acteurs que l'quipe de tournage, Andrew Shue (vritable footballeur et acteur dans Melrose Place), Elisabeth Shue et son mari sont impliqus dans tous les aspects du projet. Et c'est pour a que ce film se suit malgr tout, c'est vraiment trs sincre et on peut dire que le coeur y est, vraiment. Mais le problme, c'est que la structure du film un peu hache, l'histoire qui n'vite pas les clichs, et une ralisation un peu bancale font de ce film une "simple" dclaration d'amour un tre cher disparu et met un peu trop de ct l'aspect cinmatographique, on a l'impression que c'est parfois amateur, fait avec des tripes et de l'envie, mais il manque la matrise et la cohrence. Cependant, l'actrice Carly Schroeder tient le film sur ses paules et est trs convaincante en adolescente dtermine et comme je l'ai dit, le reste suit ct acteur, dommage qu'ils soient un peu en roue libre et qu'il manque le petit quelque chose. Mais tel qu'il est, a reste un tmoignage touchant d'une partie de la vie assez mconnue d'une actrice reconnue !

Stefanie C (it) wrote: Black comedy, Italian style. Delightfully satirical. Germi explores an antiquated law that eradicates rape if the parties marry. Peppino doesn't want to marry Agnese because she is no longer virginal: "The man has the right to ask; the woman has a duty to refuse." But, why would Agnese want to marry her seducer? Chaos ensues in defense of family and honor.

Byron B (es) wrote: This is a little like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid with themes of the passing of the ways of the old west. It is set in the early 1900s. Automobiles and motorcycles are taking over as preferred modes of transportation. Wayne reunites with O'Hara briefly, too briefly. She only appears in the opening scenes. John Wayne's real son Patrick plays one rebellious son. Robert Michum's real son Christopher plays the other motocycle riding son. John Wayne is especially macho and stuck in his generation's way of relating to the younger generation who want to try new things. Of course since Wayne is the star and a producer, his character wins the day by stubbornly sticking to what he knows, putting the young men in their place as spoiled kids with tantrums and toys, and beating the outlaws.

Tim R (it) wrote: Rex Reed of the New York Observer sums it up perfectly... "I expected nothing special and wound up being thoroughly exhilarated."Really good movie, true story, and great acting. This is one of the few Chris Pine movies Ive seen, and he makes for a great 1950's bro. Casey Affleck was one of the more likable characters I can think of.
