Alex: 1986, the year yours truly was birthed
Ronnie: kid chucked out to ‘go and play’ something’s happening…
Alex: 50 seconds in, and we are already at the raping?
Ronnie: yeah, them Easterners don’t mess about
Alex: I believe the male actor was in Versus, or something else I have seen super recently
Ronnie: that’s it, make the bitch quiet 😀
Alex: and the guy with the hardened looking face was in about 44 John Woo movies, always the bad guy
Alex: of course it would be better if I could remember the names…
Ronnie: a guy called ‘Nam’?

ebola01

Well, that's one way of waking him up...

Alex: Golder shower?
Alex: this movie isn’t screwing around
Alex: “Nam” does seem like a highly unfortunate name for someone living in Hong Kong
Alex: The old “I’ll castrate myself” trick
Ronnie: yay! he’s gone schitzo!

Body Count, Body Count. Body MF Count...

Body Count, Body Count. Body MF Count...

Alex: He did good “crazy eyes”
Ronnie: he did good monkey faces…
Alex: He can “smell” the child?!?!?!?
Ronnie: ‘I’m killing them. Is that a problem?’ 😀
Ronnie: Eight minutes in and the credits start. This is worse than the Yank movies! 😀
Alex: “After Kai killed three peoples, he was still on the run.” Yup that’s right, “peoples.”
Ronnie: yeah, it’s in Engrish
Alex: Yeah, we almost had a small girl get lit on fire, colour me interested
Ronnie: and the music is like a mix of Rob Zombie and Morricone
Alex: I wish the soundtrack were either of those two
Alex: This flick has an unhealthy obsession with penis size
Ronnie: yeah, it’s making me feel very self conscious…
Alex: did you catch a glimpse of the bow tie on that stewardess?
Ronnie: oh! A Scotland flag!

It's a game of spot-the-Scotland-flag

It's a game of spot-the-Scotland-flag

Alex: it was bigger than her head
Alex: I don’t see any rain
Alex: can’t be Scotland
Ronnie: your penis, or the Scotland flag?
Alex: both
Ronnie: it’s not, but the airport had a Scotland flag
Ronnie: yay for bad dubbing too
Ronnie: ‘The yellow bastard wants a fight’ – best line yet 😀
Ronnie: and the old ‘I curse you in a language you don’t understand’ trick
Alex: so much racism, was this written by the creators of South Park?
Ronnie: dragging a full dead pig through a restaurant… awesome!
Alex: oooooo, flashback in the bathroom mirror, nicely done.
Ronnie: yeah, so she’s the kid that nearly got toasted?
Alex: I’m assuming so, yeah.
Alex: I see a white woman begging to be a victim.
Alex: so our hero like prostitutes
Ronnie: I have a bad feeling about this…
Alex: yeah, you sure know how to pick em!
Ronnie: ‘It’s a bird’? What’s with this sex scene??

Maybe it's a Honk Kong sex position... I dunno...

Maybe it's a Honk Kong sex position... I dunno...

Ronnie: ‘Superman’???!
Alex: I am so confused
Ronnie: Well that slab of meat will be a bit more salty than usual….
Alex: this is the kinda movie you just can’t explain to anyone because they wouldn’t believe you
Alex: alright, well we have confirmation on the little girl being the now grown up girl
Alex: when the hell did we go to the safari?
Ronnie: Dunno, but I hope there’s some tigers to attack people…
Alex: ask and you shall receive Ronnie
Ronnie: yaayyyy!
Alex: oh wow, that’s a REAL TIGER

Could someone please buy Alex a 'Big Cats of Africa' book?

Could someone please buy Alex a 'Big Cats of Africa' book?

Ronnie: it’s a Cheetah dumb ass! 😀
Ronnie: Tigers have stripes
Alex: oh, well same thing. Cat Family, dangerous, scary.
Ronnie: I like this guy, he’s a complete perv 😀
Alex: this has turned in a nature show
Alex: yeah, well nature show besides the high school level dialogue of “look, boobies. hehehe” 🙂
Alex: now I’m getting some Cannibal Holocaust/Ferox vibes

Cannibal Ferox? Nope. But just as cliched

Cannibal Ferox? Nope. But just as cliched

Alex: which is never a bad thing
Ronnie: it’s like National Geographic now…
Alex: or Roots
Ronnie: boobies! hehehe 😀
Ronnie: bird flu!
Ronnie: that was quite possibly the worst cut ever
Alex: there was a pig earlier, maybe there was some swine flu!
Ronnie: you never know!
Alex: keep your eyes open for low-flying pandemy
Ronnie: why do these ‘South Africans’ speak English?
Alex: I am actually watching this with my mouth open, wondering what the hell will happen next
Alex: they are running out of taboos
Ronnie: nice place to quit your job – middle of Africa
Alex: i bet they wouldn’t get cell phone service out there either
Ronnie: hurry, she’s still warm!
Ronnie: what was that you were saying about the taboos?

She's convulsing, he's stuck inside her, and - yes - that's a rock in his left hand. Need I say more?

She's convulsing, he's stuck inside her, and - yes - that's a rock in his left hand. Need I say more?

Alex: I’m actually speechless
Alex: alright, so maybe they aren’t nearly out of taboos
Ronnie: there’s always worse
Ronnie: she’s such a nice woman…
Ronnie: God I hope she gets Ebola
Alex: it is destined to happen
Alex: ahh they visited a Zulu tribe, good to know they didn’t even try and use a slightly lesser known tribe
Ronnie: ‘Zulu’s, thousands of ’em!’
Alex: I think that’s a special Sars model mask
Alex: or a white version of Sub-Zero’s mask from Mortal Kombat, it is hard to tell the difference
Ronnie: I do believe the mask is, in fact, upside down…
Alex: ahhh i just got a good look, yeah it was
Alex: Evil crazy bitch wife dies in 3……..2………1……..
Ronnie: Yay!
Alex: so basically, our…*ahem*….”hero” is an Ebola infected, rapist and killing machine?
Ronnie: What bad luck. caught humping TWO bosses wives!
Alex: his timing is awful, but man he is one hell of a scrappy fighter!
Ronnie: HIGHLY extended ‘i’m in pain’ scene
Ronnie: … and death by door

Death by door.

Death by door.

Alex: so one death by a folding table, and now a death by glass door
Alex: 2 rapes and an attempted rape
Alex: a death by garden shears to the package
Ronnie: she’s gonna bite! I just know it…
Alex: Last house on the left style, the original, of course!
Ronnie: more monkey faces…

How can sex be such a glorious thing, when people are making faces like that?!

How can sex be such a glorious thing, when people are making faces like that?!

Alex: death by yet another table
Alex: Ebola infected Furniture rape ninja?!?!?!?!?!?
Ronnie: very resourceful this killer…
Alex: and then after killing his bosses, he goes back to work
Ronnie: overtime, without pay
Alex: he could probably start a nice little escrow account now though
Alex: considering is, by Hong Kong law, now the owner of the restaurant
Ronnie: why isn’t he raping the dead body?
Ronnie: bitch burgers 😀
Alex: lol, well done Ronnie, I was trying to think of something to say there
Alex: if this turns into a zombie thing, I will be SO happy
Ronnie: that’d be awesome
Alex: please let this all be an elaborate set up for a zombie A-pork-alypse
Alex: see what i did there Ronnie?
Ronnie: a-pork-alypse, absolutely no need for that joke! 😀
Alex: I tried, what can I say, no excuse for it, but it had to be done
Alex: how about a HAM-demic?
Ronnie: you mean epidemic?
Alex: i prefer hamdemic
Alex: i thought for a second instead of money, that would be a Necronomicon!
Alex: holy shit, I forgot about the little girl all grown up
Ronnie: where is the Ebola virus now? As it seems he doesn’t have it? It kills within several days
Alex: I guess if he fills up his health bar with rape experience points
Alex: he can debuff the effects of the Ebola?
Ronnie: doubt it… but seems so
Alex: deepest black guy voice ever in film
Alex: i hope this movie is on YouTube so we can share that with our readers, its hilarious
Ronnie: I don’t understand why it keeps jumping to English!
Ronnie: that inspectors voice is bizarre!
Alex: its definitely throwing me off
Alex: and they are dropping like flies now from Ebola!

uh-oh, they're dropping like flies after eating the bitch-burgers

uh-oh, they're dropping like flies after eating the bitch-burgers

Ronnie: Ebola liquefies peoples organs gradually, not just one particular day!
Alex: omg, the dad starts convulsing and then the kid, simply by touch, started convulsing
Ronnie: did he serve the entire country??!
Alex: this movie isn’t even following its own set of rules!
Ronnie: I didn’t think it had any
Alex: since when did he have a moustache?
Ronnie: did they really need to show us him rubbing his groin??
Alex: at this point, a minor package cupping is the least of my worries
Alex: finally, some proper gore
Ronnie: why isn’t he dying from it? He had it first
Ronnie: ‘turned to mush’ – very medical
Alex: just like on discovery channel
Alex: but hey, they are ripping a guy face off

This surgeon will have to FACE facts... see what I did there?

This surgeon will have to FACE facts... see what I did there?

Alex: so i’m totally OK with how this autopsy scene is going.
Alex: direct quote from chief of police: “WHAT?!?!?!? EBOLA?!?!?!?”
Ronnie: yeah, what kind of posh hotel doesn’t provide hookers??
Alex: the kind i will never go to
Ronnie: the kind I can’t afford
Ronnie: (hotels and hookers) 😀
Alex: i can usually afford only one
Ronnie: the worst one?
Alex: not answering that =)
Alex: where the hell is this movie going
Alex: I LOVE SCRABBLE, apparently she doesn’t though
Ronnie: How many points for ‘EBOLA’?
Alex: +10 points to Ronnie for a scrabble + movie title tie-in joke
Ronnie: thanks 🙂
Alex: looks like were, at the 1 hour and 5 minute mark, finally being introduced to the people who will take down Captain Ebola
Ronnie: comedy… gotta love it
Alex: so, we weren’t supposed to be laughing this whole time?
Ronnie: I don’t think so, no.
Alex: is that computer running windows? Looks like all it could handle was pong
Ronnie: Probably running a nice little Linux distro 🙂
Alex: so this went from sleaze/exploitation movie, to a safari nature film, to a weird softcore porn, and now it is a detective story
Ronnie: best reaction ever: ‘FUCK!’ *bangs table* 😀
Alex: “I just received a fax from South Africa” direct quote
Alex: who the fuck FAXED THEM? THE ZULUS?!?!?!?!?
Ronnie: you just never know with this film!
Alex: I know South Africa has some nice spots, but I don’t think they were “fax ready” in 1996
Alex: and if they were, they were probably just sending pictures of boobies
Ronnie: why did they just show a mouse being run over?
Alex: it had been a while since they showed a dead animal
Alex: they have to meet a quota
Ronnie: I suppose, yeah 😀
Alex: so he (Ebola man) is trying to marry his…cousin?
Alex: or whatever she is to him
Alex: i like the “mouth vision”
Ronnie: Ebola-cam!
Alex: that’s two weeks in a row he have gotten pov of the “killer”
Alex: penis cam last week, mouth/Ebola-germ cam tonight
Ronnie: even when it’s an airborne virus
Alex: did you see that dudes chest tattoo? Looked like the Asian Danny Trejo
Alex: more random convulsions in the street
Ronnie: and at work
Alex: at work makes sense
Alex: I’ve convulsed plenty of times on the job
Ronnie: notice how the woman manages to spasm without opening her legs?
Alex: gotta be self-aware, even in the death throws
Ronnie: it’s that scary music again
Alex: don’t want anyone looking up your dress while your trying your best not to die
Alex: nice detox suits, the one guy checked it out as if he was making sure the color brought out his eyes

The cop on the right wonders if the bio-suit is really his colour...

The cop on the right wonders if the bio-suit is really his colour...

Ronnie: I think it was his colour…
Alex: orange really works for him
Ronnie: more random spaz attacks
Alex: we are nearing the endgame here
Alex: the cunning detectives are hot on the trail of Ebola man
Ronnie: EIGHT victims?! There were dozens in the hospital!
Alex: lol, I’m at a loss
Alex: there have been like dozens of victims
Alex: I’m hoping they riddle this guy with bullets John Woo style
Ronnie: very inconspicuous to run about with a meat cleaver!
Ronnie: hostage time!
Alex: he’s holding a kid hostage with a meat clever, I’m pretty sure one well placed shot would end this
Alex: I’ve played enough video games to be able to hit him, give me the gun!
Ronnie: disinfect the middle of a street??!!
Alex: it takes A LOT of Fabreeze
Alex: finally, someone showed up with a goddamn sniper rifle
Ronnie: just shoot him in the leg…
Alex: where did the sniper go?
Ronnie: your answer…
Alex: wait, that was a tranquillizer gun?
Alex: what a cock-tease
Ronnie: apparently so
Ronnie: yay, flame-thrower!

Yay! Home made flame-thrower!

Yay! Home made flame-thrower!

Alex: almost, I actually thought that was pretty cool
Alex: it was like some jerry-rigged cooking device
Alex: lit on fire, hit by a car, and then shot like 6 times!!!!

On fire, hit by a car then gets shot several times. Now THAT's a death!

On fire, hit by a car then gets shot several times. Now THAT's a death!

Ronnie: on fire, run over AND shot! 😀
Alex: uh oh, setting up the sequel!!
Ronnie: oh that’s quite a sneaky pass though…
Ronnie: good ending…
Alex: any time i set someone set on fire, hit by a car, and shot, i can safely say that ending was good
Alex: everything up until that point however….
Ronnie: was crazy
Ronnie: Either way, I’m giving it four stars 🙂
Ronnie: deserves it for the madness and comedy in one package
Alex: ooooo very high
Alex: I will go 2
Ronnie: TWO?!
Alex: there was a great movie in there, but I was put off by the indulgences of the lunacy, instead of trying to control in a bit
Ronnie: I must disagree. It started off pretty brutal, went mad, went brutal again and all the while having some comedy elements.
Alex: we agree to disagree then. We need Erin here next week to be the tie-breaker in these situations.
Ronnie: definitely.
Alex: I will say that it’s certainly recommendable to anything who loves wacky Hong Kong fun.
Ronnie: I agree there!

Ronnie: Rating: ★★★★☆

Alex: Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Having survived the UK's 'video nasty' (prohibition) era I'm eager to catch up with all previously unseen sleaze and filth. I revel in mixtape oddness, boobage, gore, and proper latex special effects, don't get me started on CGI... - email Ronnie
