Shark Exorcist
Directed by Donald Farmer
Country USA
Year 2015
“With no budget for gore or nudity all that remains is one computer animated shark, red syrup, some fake teeth reused from previous movies, a wiki torch and some seriously bad acting.”

A murdering nun gets killed and falls into the water. Before she dies, she utters a curse. Now a shark is terrorizing the local waters.



Shark Exorcist wasn't post dubbed but has direct sound evident from the fact it's sometimes drowned out by the wind. The plot is ludicrous of course but the title Shark Exorcist” should be fair warning. There's a computer animated shark that makes the CGI in Sharknado look good. The exorcism itself is completely insane. The priest is the worst exorcist since “Obscene Desire”. However, as ludicrous as the scene is, it's actually the first entertaining thing to happen in the movie. Too bad after the exorcism it's back to a car driving scene devoid of dialogue.

With no budget for gore or nudity all that remains is one computer animated shark, red syrup, some fake teeth reused from previous movies, a wiki torch and some seriously bad acting. The best thing about Shark Exorcist is undoubtedly the cover which has some great art and will leave many a customer disappointed by the actual movie. Shark Exorcist is a movie you have to endure rather than watch. Yet I'd rather suffer through this movie again than another installment of the Sharknado franchise.

Bloodfist V: Human Target
Directed by Jeff Yonis
Country USA
Year 1994
“...decent gets boring very quickly.”

After a violent confrontation Jim Stanton escapes but is shot in the head and loses his memories in the process. When he goes looking for his past he discovers he's a known criminal. However, things might not be what they seem.

The plot is a lot better than one would expect of a movie called Bloodfist and a fifth one to boot. Usually good plot equals good movie. But when it's an action movie starring two kickboxing champions the plot isn't essential. It's a bit like a track runner being good at chess.

What is crucial is the action. And it's here that the movie falters. Not that the fights aren't decent, they are. But decent gets boring very quickly. There's a small massacre that occurs but nothing very bloody or graphic.

Also missing is an interesting villain. Don Wilson even has to fight his most menacing adversary a second time after having bitch slapped him around the room the first time. The only appearances of note are Don Stark and Brian George who have small parts and have since gone on to become prominent television actors.



Bloodfist V: Human Target makes the time go by but nothing else. A disappointing entry in the Bloodfist franchise.

Bloodfist VI: Ground Zero
Directed by Rick Jacobson
Country USA
Year 1995
“Don't take life so seriously and that goes twice for this movie.”

Terrorists hold the country to ransom after taking over a nuclear weapon launch site. A courier arriving at an inopportune time might disrupt their plans.

Wilson plays a courier, but he could just as easily have been the cook. Sometimes he's the bungling courier in other occasion martial arts master. He appears to be playing Clark Kent and at other times playing Superman although here that doesn't make sense because there's no hidden identity. Wilson who was almost stoic in the first Bloodfist has a wide range of mostly exaggerated facial expressions. He's like Bruce Lee and Jacky Chan rolled into one. Although not as good as either, it's a good and entertaining performance.

There are brutal action scenes and some nudity too. Although the box for nudity gets checked right of the bat and there's no repeat performance.



The movie as a whole is silly really as is some of the humor. There's a lot of how could the villains miss Wilson and how isn't he dead yet. The final confrontation and ultimate solution to the problem makes any misgivings towards the movie melt away. Don't take life so seriously and that goes twice for this movie.
It's a fun romp and a good performance by Wilson, definitely one of the best in the franchise.
