    Well, you wanted a movie to showcase her skills, I guess its nice that we have a point where she explains various techniques to the audience (who else would it be?)

    Edit: I have to admit, these establishing fights are awesome in a certain way.

    Yeah, baby. More Cynthia Rothrock.

    1:50- I just hope China's father isn't racist in any way.

    I hate rednecks, even the zombie kind.

    5:08- STRIKE!

    7:10- I agree. What's with these slo-mo scenes in these films.

    I guest the good guys in this film don't get hit in the fight scenes because the director thought he was playing a video game and entered the invincibility code.

    11:59- Oh, so THAT'S how the Republicans won the Mid-Term elections.

    12:59- I love this shot, too. She can give Darth Maul and Gambit a run for their money.

    Great review as always, Lupa.

    Best. Title Card. Ever.

    So is the Indian guy North Dakota Or South? I thought his name was gonna be Night Wolf or Thunder Hawk or something.

    Funny that you mention Nightwolf. Stumpy was played by the guy who play Sub-Zero in MK: Annihilation... eerie, right?

    They call her China because no one seems to remember what her real name is, of course.

    Why would someone name themselves Termite?

    Okay, this movie really justifies China O'Brien's relationship to Julette Daniel (aka Lisa) from the Room.

    Seriously, they might be mother-daughter or sisters for all i know!

    YOU ARE TEARING ME APART CYNTHIA!

    Does this movie credit the 1973 Walking Tall as an inspiration?

    Relying on stereotypes is kind of stupid. Who are the german guys anyway?

    Yay, cameo from Bargain Bin Horror!!! Best part of the whole review. (Their reviews was actually the first place I heard about Obscurus Lupa.)

    When are they returning to the limelight anyway?

    you can't have black blet in wu shu wu shu first of all isnt japanese so no japanese ranking system and wu shu is a word that describes all fighting system at once its like "arts of fighting" as a term

    and Kung fu you can't have one too because its not japanese (maybe its nitpicking but it sounds kida odd to me)

    however she has some nice moves but most of them look too artistic too be actual "real" martial arts more like show stuff
    tang soo do is also an art that is a rip off of kick moves from chinese stlyes combined with gymnastics and tricking

    so hmmm

    anyways nice review i love when martial artists think they are good actors just because they can fight ^^

    they should watch jackie chan and jet li if they wanna see how you are a good actor and a superb martial artist
    don't trust me with jet li ?
    watch the parts in "Unleashed" in which he doesnt fight and youll see ^^

    Gee I wonder who will win! Will it be the skilled martial artist who could kill a man with her bare hands, or the overweight minimum-wage construction worker with a bad back?

    Man Lupa, your reviews are fuckin awesome. You're definitely in my top 3 faves on the whole site. And you're ending with a shameful sequel? Rothrock on!

    Lupa in pigtails...
    I also think that the main reason they added the slow-mo just after O'Brien's father dies is to show off the fact that their lead actress doesn't believe in properly supporting her lung-growths.
  • aunt_zelda
    Great review! Can't wait for the next one!

    "Did that guy just try to use a guitar as a weapon?"
    I can't believe that you didn't put in a clip of the Brawl and Kyle Justin's Guitar in after that bit.

    I gotta ask: what made the Native stereotype character a stereotype? It wasn't made very clear to me. Is it the mysteriousness (in that he was watching Cynthia for a while before he joined her)?

    That cynthia rothrocked my world. :D
  • mo_stylez09
    Wow. That whole plot was almost exactly like The Rock's "Walking Tall" movie! Is this what it was based off of, or something else?!

    My glasses must have had a smudge on them. I could have sworn the movie title was Chief O'Brian. I can't tell you how much I would have loved to have seen a Star Trek spin-off about the other Scottish/Irish/Whatever engineer.
