DAY OF THE PANTHER (1988) ** ½

Edward John Stazak stars in this Down Under kung fu flick as Jason Blade, an undercover agent avenging the death of his female partner. Stazak (who was also the fight choreographer) has zero chemistry, but is quite good in the ass kicking department. Of the many karate scenes, the fight with a guy in a pig mask is the best. Michael Carman as the crime boss Zukor gets the best line: “Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time I got laid!” The synthesizer music and cheesy Miami Vice inspired fashions are pretty funny, as is the hilarious aerobic seduction scene. Director Brian Trenchard-Smith later went on to do Leprechaun 3. Strike of the Panther (AKA: Fists of Blood) was the sequel.
