WELTKLASSE... funniest film i have ever seen!
22 October 2002 | by thomashulstromSee all my reviews

Of all the films I have ever seen, this film is the one i treasure the most. Full of action and drama, violence and sex, shootings, fistfights, three wheeled scooters and mopeds, bad guys, bad actors... It even has a stuntman getting killed eight times (the dude with the white hat - he gets run over by a car, shot, blown up - you name it). Starring Peter O'Brian as Rambu, and directed by the famous Punjabi brothers (Punjabi, Punjabi and Punjabi), our story opens up with a couple of goons (Charlie and Harry) driving recklessly down a pebble road. You hear the scream of tyres and a sound reminiscent of 200 pounds of dead meat hitting something solid... an old farmer woman picks up her stuff and Charlie yells "Watch where you're going bitch!" "I WAAAAAS" she replies. "Naah... women are all the same... think you can getaway with bullshitting me!" and at this point our hero emerges, a Sylvester Stallone lookalike with big ears. I must say he does actually look a lot like Sylvester Stallone... could it be his cousin ? I don't know, Bu he sure knows how to throw a tennis ball. He manages to kick the two moronic bad guys asses with this ball - it returns to Rambus hand every time he throws it like a sticky booger to your finger.

When the goons tries to escape in their car, Rambu foils their plan by hitting Charlie in the forehead with this ball, resulting in the car going down the ditch and bursting into fire. AND THIS IS JUST THE OPENING SCENE! I cannot do this film justice, YOU HAVE TO SEE IT! I have seen it more than 30 times and i still love it. I still discover new errors and details that i somehow missed earlier. From Rambus big ears to Charlies overgrown mustache, mopeds going so slow the riders can hardly keep the balance (filmed in slow motion so Rambu can do some acrobatic kicks and punches), nude scenes with below average oriental females (except one), to awful effects and terrible dubbing... Somehow it all makes sense when you see it. See this film - you wont regret it!
