646f9e108c After being left for dead, the man is rescued by two Japanese soldiers, living on a remote island, who teach him the ways of the samurai. Upon returning to the USA, he quickly exacts a bloody revenge on his tormentors and reunite with his wife and son.
An American Vietnam soldier on his way home is left for dead and is saved by a pair of Japanese stragglers from WWII, who train him in the way of the samurai.
What attracted me to this low budget Filipino drive-in movie was its premise, that being the tall and muscular actor James Iglehart wielding a samurai sword and slashing his way through the American mafia on a quest for vengeance. Admit it, that premise sounds pretty cool. However, I didn't think that the movie quite lived up to its potential. The main beef I had with the movie was how the first half of the movie played out. It's kind of slow, and almost totally devoid of real action. Some more action sequences in this part of the movie would have greatly helped. However, once Iglehart makes his way back to America and begins his samurai vigilante antics, things do pick up considerably. Some of the fight sequences are surprisingly good, filled with great energy and some very convincing choreography that really makes you believe the participants are fighting for their lives. Weighing the first half of the movie against the second half, what you end up with is an okay low budget Filipino actioner - far from the worst of its kind, but at the same time you'll see potential that was not quite realized.
My first Cirio H Santiago film! This one has a brain-meltingly random premise, Afros, cool music, is choppy as hell and even throws in a bit of gore at the end there.<br/><br/>Russell is a Vietnam vet who&#39;s smuggled some gold with his mates Morrello and McGhee, who of course double cross him, slit his throat, throw him in the sea and head off to L.A to waste the mob there and become crime lords (as we see them blast their way through many gangs). McGhee also has the hots for Russell&#39;s wife, and periodically turns up to try and woo her (getting more aggressive with every visit).<br/><br/>Russell, however, washes up on a desert island, where he meets two Japanese soldiers who have never surrendered (and never will). After becoming friends and indulging in some funny banter (&quot;You should see Japan now!&quot;), the ranking officer (great character) teaches Russell how to slice things up good with a samurai sword, which as you know will lead Russell back to LA where he can chop his buddies, and their hired goons (Hired goons?) into little pieces.<br/><br/>Full of ridiculous situations, action scenes and funky music, Fighting Mad is a good bet for an exploitation fan. There&#39;s a good relationship between Russell and the Japanese officer, and just when I thought Russel would never get off that damn island, he does in a rather sad scene and the film picks up from there. Whenever the film bogs down in training sequences, Santiago just switches to L.A to show McGhee and Morrello taking on rival mobs.<br/><br/>Once Russell arrives in LA, he becomes an unstoppable killing machine to get to his enemies. It looked like some of the violence had been cut from the version I watched (a leg being severed), but as there were several graphic decapitations at the end, who knows? This is good for a watch if you&#39;re like me, and just switch your brain off before hitting &#39;play&#39; and just go with the flow. It&#39;s chea
