    Dude you have to see this movie called “7 Lucky Ninja Kids” its the worst funniest underated movie ive ever seen, i owned it when i was like 8, and used to watch it all the time until i got bored of it… then last year i found it somewhere on the internet and i laughed my ass off!! it had so many really crazy and downright rude comedy for a kids movie i never noticed, and its really worth you reviewing if you get the chance!!

    I bought this movie cause James said it was so bad you had to see it and he isn’t kidding, worst movie just about ever. Only thing I ever saw that was so bad it was good that was better than this was Death Race 2000 with Stalone and David Carodine

    This looks like the greatest undescovered movie of all time.

    Haha, hey, how’s it going?

    I’ve been going around this site for a couple of years now and never noticed this review up here. King Kung-Fu is a movie that gets played every so often at a local film festival or just for no apparent reason here.

    Yes, that’s right. I’m from Wichita, KS. This movie is pure greatness when it comes to a B-Movie, I love it. I think I’ve seen it about 5 times since I was a kid (I’m 24 now).

    Believe it or not this movie is actually hard to find even in Wichita, I know I’ve never seen it for sale, and to let you know, downtown Wichita (Yes, that part of the city with the Holiday Inn is downtown) pretty much looks the same with the inclusions of about 5 or 6 more buildings.

    As for the Holiday Inn, it’s still there for the most part except for it’s an apartment building, kinda nice actually as the entire top few floors are like a recreational area and a col place to watch fireworks from, as for that tiny brown building, that’s “Century II” which is kinda like a convention center of sorts…well, it’s exactly a convention center, kinda looks like a UFO when looked at from the correct view ( Do I smell another B movie made in Wichita, I think so? )

    But yeah, that’s Wichita’ claim to fame other than the serial killer that didn’t technically live in Wichita. Great to see you reviewing this little known about movie and I would love to see you review a favorite of mine if you ever get the chance.

    I know you’ve probbly seen it a million times, of course I’m talking about “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”. Quite possibly one of the funniest movies ever, especially considering it’s G rating.

    Anyway, just wanted to throw out a few things about Wichita and show my appreciation for your awesome website. E-blowjob over.

    I am from Wichita and my buddies tried to watch this about a year ago. I cannot agree with you that it is so bad its terrible, it is just plain terrible. I guess it was kind of cool seeing all the mediocre places here in Wichita. The Holiday in is now an apartment building and everything else is still the same (We did get a nice new downtown arena). People from Wichita are always excited when we are mentioned in the movies or news (Zombieland, Night and Day, and the serial killer BTK). Anyways; The movie is a joke and the best way to find it was Netflix.

    Some people may want to watch this for my glowing review and then hunt me down to kill me for it later. This passes the test of “So bad it’s good,” because it is not boring.
    It WILL insult your intelligence– a LOT, but I have never laughed so hard while feeling like a complete fool.
    LOTS of stuff will make you cringe!
    But when the moment passes, you will again be busting a gut laughing.
    Especially if you’re drunk– really, really drunk!
    It compares quite favorably to “Galaxina,” (starring the Doritos Chips guy from the 70’s) and “Curse of the Queerwolf.”
    My fiancée would not let me finish watching it, but I will be back and will probably watch this again and again.
    This is a great film to torture people with!
    It helps that I am obsessed with apes and wear a gorilla suit in the park for fun.
    It helps a lot.
    It is more cheesy, corny, and over the top than even to worst Kung Fu movie, and perhaps the one disappointment I have with it is there doesn’t seem to be any Kung Fu worth watching in it. Mind you, I haven’t seen the whole thing yet (and reviewing it– that’s how much I love it!) but I think it’s safe to assume this based on the training fight between “Jungle Jumper” and his Sensei.
    If you like movies that are stupifyingly bad, you will probably jump for joy when you find this.
    Then again you may curse my name and try to avenge the very concept of my loving this movie!

    This review made me laugh so hard I make an account just to comment on it. I like the montage although I haven’t seen the movie. Truly, I doubt I’ll ever see it :D.

    Damn I wanna go to Wichita now!

    Wow i have to see this movie , it will haunt my dreams from now on.
    Thank you James to make us know about obscure movies like this one.
    Too bad you don’t have a lot of time right now to make new video with your movie project but one day i hope you do the review of schlock. People must be aware of the brain damaging potential of this hallucinating mix up of random shit.
    Thanks again for this movie, you’re my fuckin’ idol.

    You know what’s a stupid, funny, and retarded movie, “Shaolin Kickers/Soccer”. It’s really retarded and the special effects in that movie are horrible and repugnant, so if you have time go on YouTube and type in Shaolin Soccer – Full Movie, and you’ll see the full movie. (Suggestion)

    For any and all who are interested, this movie is now available on Netflix instant queue! bout to give it a watch james, thanks for putting me in the right goofy ass frame of mind.

    I grew up in Wichita, where I still live, and saw this movie as a kid when it first came out. Years later I went to Wichita State University and acutally had as an english professor the guy who plays the old karate master; his name is Jim Ericson I believe, and his nickname was “Old Flick”. He was a movie buff and I heard that his old house where he would throw parties was literally covered wall to wall and ceiling to floor with movie memorabilia and all manner of bizarre shit; quite a character.
