Trivia

Lighting technician Elvin Ralph Coon III was very critical of the film in a Los Angeles Times article from 2007, claiming that "The whole thing was just bad all the way around . . . This thing was really destined to wind up in the cutout bin of some truck stop on the way to Barstow." See more »

Goofs

Right after Max saves Christy in the ocean, they are talking on the beach with Jane. Christy's hair is wet in front shots, but damp to nearly dry when seeing her from the back. See more »

Movie was so bad, I had to wash my eyes out w/bleach
3 January 2006 | by txchainsaw2See all my reviews

A friend of mine in Guam sent me a video of this movie that was made there with Guam Government money. It was utterly stupid and beyond pointless. I feel bad for the Guam Government for losing money in the scam. They'll never make money on this pile o' sh*t movie.

It's about a sport's photographer who goes to Guam to take pictures of some hotel. He meets some girls (playboy model Joanna Kruppa plays one of the girls - in a cover story for Playboy Kruppa called MAX HAVOC "really stupid!" Well she's right) and some kung-fu gang is chasing her. I don't know why. Anyways, Max Havoc helps her out. The fights are so poorly done, it looks like stuff my kids shoot on their Hi-8 Video camera. But beyond that, MAX HAVOC is so BORING. You want to fast forward through it, but that doesn't even help!

The movie makes not a lick of sense and it's hard to imagine someone making a film this bad. I IMDb'd MAX HAVOC director Albert Pyun and he makes really awful movies, so I guess it makes sense that he made MAX HAVOC. That seems to be his forte: making really bad movies, but not "so bad they're good" movies say in the spirit of Ed Wood, his movies just flat out suck. Talk about ZERO talent. I wonder if he cons people like he conned the Guam Government when he made this film. What a legacy!

If you see this movie in the video store (somehow I don't think it will ever make it off the island of Guam), hold your nose!
