Movie : Hard Ticket to Hawaii (1987)

A definite cult classic involving drug smuggling gangs, diamonds and a toxic snake on a small Hawaiian island. Its a strange film with masses of gratuitous nudity (the female cast need no excuse it seems to take their clothes) and violence. Its also full of oddness. The skateboard assassin scene for example, where the hoodlum tries to hide behind... a blow-up doll.

The plot is fairly basic being a standard good guys hunt the bad guys film though the addition of a toxic snake (which by the end of the film seems to gain almost magical powers) gives the film its final random twist. Its very 80s, very odd and actually very good. Well good if you like weird 80s action cheese...
