Breaks a New Record...In Boredom!
5 April 2001 | by doctrnolesSee all my reviews

God of Killers was one of the worst movies I have ever seen, and anyone who says it's good is just being obtuse. I liked the great sound effects, such as the "akiiba!" and "jinnkadaa!" yells of the villains, but come on! This movie is an embarrassment to action movies and itself. I kept thinking to myself, "so, what am I, two hours into this movie? Oh, wait, it's more like a minute." Chow, shame on you! I did not like the treatment of the dwarf, it wasn't very funny, and it was uncool. There was more action in the wallpaper in my livingroom, than in this action thriller. It was obvious that this movie had a really low budget, so to compensate they would give ordinary guys extraordinary names; for example, Chow is the God of Killers. See, it makes it fun! I wish that I had watched the movie in front of a moving bus, so then I'd be guaranteed that something thrilling would happen. Rating: 2/10 ( When the wind comes down you will see who rules, Chow!)
