Words fail to describe how pitifully bad this film is...

This truly awful movie opens with about 10 minutes of boring stock footage of a motocross race as the main character, Max Havoc, takes pictures and that sets the tone of this ineptly made action/martial-arts film. I can't believe how bad this film was.

So after the stock footage motocross race we learn that Max Havoc is a sports photographer who use to be an ultimate fighter who killed a man in the ring. This traumatizing event is seen in flashback at least 17 times, over and over, in ultra-slow motion, over and over. It's almost as if the producer didn't have enough footage for a feature length film so he had the editor cut in stock footage scenes, reuse scenes, and use slow motion repeatedly to nauseating effect. The editing is so bad. For example, in one scene the characters walk into a clothing store and the scene cuts to the interior of a kitchen!?? In another a girl appears in a scene whose never been seen before and talks with Max Havoc referencing something that's never happened!??

Anyways, Max's photo editor sends him to Guam because he needs a vacation and of course in Guam Max gets involved with two stupid girls who've taken an ancient dragon statue (that looks like it came from the 99 cents store) from some Japanese mob, or something stupid like that. The mob members chase them around the island hotel (in slow motion) and everybody gets in lame-ass kung-fu fights.

David Caradine's character is in the film for all of about 2 minutes and it's never really made clear who he is or why he's there. He looks threatening and poses for the camera and that's about it.

Richard Roundtree plays Max's boxing coach who later turns up in Guam as an antique dealer!?? Carmen Electra is in the film for about 20 seconds and her sound was obviously dubbed in later. Her scene has a badly-dubbed Japan monster movie feel. Fat Joe is nowhere in the film...

One of the film's main sets is the hide-out of the Japanese mob and it's obviously just some hotel banquet room with some colored lights. The camera feels like it's got Parkinson's disease as it pans around without reason, looking for something, anything..

Even fans of Director Albert Pyun's "so bad, there good" style of crappy film- making will be sadly disappointed with this film. It's really bad, even for him.

Reading the newspaper-clipping posts on the MAX HAVOC: CURSE OF THE DRAGON IMDb bulletin board, I guess the film was caught up in a lot of controversy or some kinda money scam, well after watching the film, I believe it.

This movie sets a new standard for filmic incompetence and viewer boredom/apathy

We've all seen them: bad movies. However, MAX HAVOC: CURSE OF THE DRAGON sinks to uncharted lows of stupidity and boredom. I guess this mess seemed like a good idea to some mentally bankrupt "Hollywood Never-Beens," but even an Elementary school film-maker wouldn't be proud of this celluloid atrocity.

A sports photographer goes to the Island of Guam to shoot pictures of something, I don't know what and the screenwriters (There were two!!!) doesn't seem to know either. His name, Max Havoc, is straight out of a bad 80's action film (except it's a bad 2004 action film). While in Guam he runs into some girls who can't act and they involve him in some mind numbing plot points and there's lots of remedial kung-fu "action."

Carmen Electra is in the film for all of 10 seconds but she's got the top-billing. (Yeah, it's one of those rip-off films. The DVD case says: STARRING CARMEN ELECTRA and she's barely in the film. Not only are you, the viewer, ripped off by this film it looks like the Islanders on Guam were ripped off too as the producers got the Locals to sign a loan deal that went bad ((of course - they make bad movies and default on production loans!!)) or some such sh*t.)

There's all the clichéd scenes you expect in a Grade-F "action film." Lots of slow-motion, yelling and running around. No car chases but there is an "action" scene with a boat that's going about 2mph! The girls don't take any clothes off, so you don't even got that. The film reminded me of one of those bad "skin-a-max" films you see in Hotel rooms, except there was no porn in this film just bad story, bad sets, bad acting, bad lighting and bad direction. At least the film-makers were consistently bad: Not one single good thing appears anywhere in this film!

The film ends (thank you, God!): Max Havoc chases away the bad kung-fu guys and gets the girl, Guam gets pinched for the film's budget and you, for having made the mistake of picking this turd up, gets ripped off for whatever Blockbuster charged you.

Joanna Krupa hotter than the sun

Max Havoc is not a cinematic masterpiece. In fact it's a poorly produced movie. the attempt of trying to make a Hollywood action movie on a beer budget is clearly evident and does not work. What saves this train wreck of a movie is Joanna Krupa. She might be one of the hottest women in Hollywood. My GF said she can't act. I disagree and wish my GF would move out. She's a failed actress and comedian who hates on other people that actually appear in movies. Where Max Havoc took a bad turn was not more Joanna Krupa. The director or producer or studio should have included nudity parts with Joanna Krupa. When you cast eye candy you have to show eye candy. I do hate when movies feature a star like Carmen Electra on a DVD cover when they have a minor part in the movie. It's like bait and switch. I hope that Joanna Krupa is more movies.
