|Japanese ring action with a weird edge is presented by Frontier Martial Arts Wrestling (FMW) in this 90-minute compilation, which kicks off with the gleefully obnoxious announcers promising lots of blood, ball bats, and barbed wire. The wrestling action itself is lively, with a lot of aerial moves, but just when things could turn graceful, something utterly brutal comes along and restores the proper tone. A featured match between female wrestlers "Bad Nurse" and "Mother in Law" begins with an onscreen title boldly announcing "Chick Fight," and a female wrestler known as "the Shark" is referred to by an announcer as "one mean butch bitch." The focus is never far from lowbrow humor and flowing blood, though there are some fairly acrobatic matches mixed in with the more brutal mayhem. Among the featured wrestlers are Americans Mike Awesome and Horace Hogan (said to be the Hulkster's cousin), Japanese stars Ricky Fuji and Hayabusa, and "Super Leather," who threatens opponents with a chainsaw (though his more common weapon is a folding chair). The coarse jokes and bloodiness of some matches makes this material inappropriate for children and those of a sensitive nature, but ring fans who like their wrestling down and dirty will relish it. --Robert J.
