“An onslaught of ass-kicking absurdity … love it or hate it, it’s doubtful you’ll ever forget it.” – Rob Humanick, Slant
The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida’s narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound has had enough, and embarks on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice. When not chasing beach bunnies or performing their hit song “Against the Ninja,” Mark (kung-fu master/inspirational speaker Y.K. Kim) and the boys are kicking and chopping at the drug world’s smelliest underbelly. It’ll take every ounce of their blood and courage, but Dragon Sound can’t stop until they’ve completely destroyed the dealers, the drunk bikers, the kill-crazy ninjas, the middle-aged thugs, the “stupid cocaine”… and the entire Miami Connection!!! Cue the histrionic dialogue, insane plotting, reckless montages, feverishly choreographed action sequences and obviously lip-synched musical numbers. Rediscovered, rescued and digitally restored after years of obscurity, this incredible exploitation flick is both a whacked-out time capsule of extreme ‘80s-ness and a crazed cult classic for all time! (Dir. by Y.K. Kim & Park Woo-sang, 1987, USA, 87 mins, Not Rated)
