AMERICAN NINJA'S REVIEW: Bruce Li The Invincible is bad but entertaining. It's like watching a train wreck that's bad to watch yet you can't take your eyes off it. Bruce Li and his master travel to Malaysia to take on a corrupted martial artist who likes to beat up weak people...naturally this calls for an asswhoopin before you can say POW! Bruce Li is kicking the shit out of thugs, tribal warriors and gorillas (!) The action is nifty enough to keep you watching despite the fact that Bruce Li is fighting unemployed workers in gorilla suits. The fact remains that this is a fun martial arts actioner. Roger Ebert, The Phantom and Mike Mayo (who does the golden retriever reviews) probably panned this film but who cares, these guys are dumbasses. It's a very fun flick with enough ridiculous acts of violence to keep your eyes glued to the screen.


MIGHTY PEKING MAN'S REVIEW: This film is an absolute riot to watch! It's got all the perfect ingredients that put your average "Bruce Li" film to shame:

  • Kung-fu fighting apes complete with bulging-out eyes (when killed)!
  • Funny looking Chinese-tribal men that wear big-ass headbands and throw huge rocks
  • "Kato" looking gunmen who can't aim worth shit
  • A bitch-beating nanny (who also gets bitch-slapped herself!)
  • A Bruce Li that sweats gallons of water instantly
  • A cute chick who runs around in tiny little, wet, white shorts
  • A face-mask that makes your body thinner (in the movie, they call it "Shaolin Disguise")

Even the dubbing is funny: "Let's attack when he starts to make love with YOUR wife, that way, he can't use his kung-fu on us...". As long as you don't take it seriously, you'll have a good time. Interesting to see Mars (stuntman and close friend of Jackie Chan) who has a huge role as Bruce Li's master - but it's only him when the master puts the "mask" on.
