Adventure #21

The sixth film in the Dirk Kilpatrick cult-favorite movie series was widely panned by critics, primarily due to the lack of Asian actors in any central roles, and the lack of any coherent plot.  The film was supposed to take place in a karate dojo in China, though it was obviously filmed in a warehouse in Pasadena, and the only Asian actor was Harvey Tan, a third generation Korean American, who played a gas station attendant (which also happened to be his real day job).  Sven Utlander, the Shakespearean-trained Swedish actor who played the lead role of Wu Shin D, had severe arthritis in his elbows and knees and so all of his fight scenes had to be acted out in slow motion.  The scenes were then sped up to appear normal… they did not.
