Image for Resort to Kill

★★★★

An oddball teaming of pro wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper with Japanese action movie legend Sonny Chiba (feted by Christian Slater in True Romance) sadly results in a tawdry, cheapskate little movie that plays like a bad 1940s serial with clumsy kung fu.

When their partner is killed by a zombie serial killer, our cop heroes track the villain to a jungle enclave where Dragon Lady Meg Foster is creating an invincible army. It would be more fun if the daffy premise were complemented by more rousing fight scenes rather than formula throwabout sessions.

You would think that a film starring legendary Japanese star Sonny Chiba and a wrestler would be the perfect ingredients for some serious on-screen carnage. This movie just isn't as action packed, funny or just enjoyable as it needs to be and although poor acting was expected the writers don't even try to hide it in the script.
