This August brings Kung-fu guru Grady Hendrix and Subway Cinema back to THE DEUCE with the ridiculously outre and outrageous RAW FORCE! Edward (NOT Eddie) D. Murphy’s 1982 shlock-sockey silliness – straight from the Philippines to your heart… and skipping your mind completely!
Ribald! Raucous!! A riot of wrong!! Kickboxing swingers at sea hit stormy waters when their delirious disco-party turns disastrous due to an ill-advised sojourn to “Warrior Island”… where everything – including the kitchen sink – that karate-horror could possibly offer awaits!!! A dastardly mini-mustachioed dictator, murder-minded monks… slave-trading and severed limbs… cannibalism… and an army of zombie-ghost kung-fu killers!! Mind-numbing nuttiness in a flick that doesn’t make a lick of sense! Gratuitous, goofy, and gonzo… jaw-droppingly jejune!
With cantankerous Cameron Mitchell as captain of said kickboxing swingers ship and Camille Keaton as “Girl in toilet”… You want more? Well, Raw Force has “more” in spades – leaving no stone unturned – and seeming like it just crawled out from under one!… A Raw Force to be reckoned with!!
