This is one of the most disturbing (and not to mention unintentionally funny) films I've ever seen. The dubbing is atrocious, the violence over-the-top, and the full frontal nudity extreme -- there is a LOT of male frontal nudity in this film; so much so that I suspect that either the writer or director was...well, INTO male full frontal nudity.
When watching this, notice how the gang members NEVER damage the hero's (?) car -- it probably wasn't in the budget. Perhaps it was even a loaner!
I'm giving this 4 stars simply because of how awful it is. It's so bad, it's funny.

"Mad Foxes" is the most deliriously stupid, nasty, and funny movie ever made. It chronicles the battle between a 30ish Stingray driving Eurotrash rich boy named Hal and a vicious motorcycle gang. The movie begins with Hal inadvertently killing one of the gang members through some reckless driving. The gang retaliates by beating him up and raping his 18-year old virgin girlfriend (only minutes before he was supposed to claim her virginity). Hal retailiates by getting a group of kickboxing friends to beat up the motorcycle gang, though he barely has time to check in on his girlfriend. In one of the most inept fight scenes ever committed to film, the kickboxers subdue the bikers, though, strangely, very few of their kicks and punches seem to connect. Hal and his buddies then castrate one of the leaders and then ... well ... it's not pretty. The violence escalates, but curiously, the raped girlfriend is never seen nor heard from again, even though Hal manages to pick up other women throughout the course of the movie. To call this movie action-packed is an understatement, even though its running time is just barely over 75 minutes.
Watching "Mad Foxes" is a truly remarkable and surreal experience. The fact that this DVD has some of the most wretched English dubbing this side of a Saturday afternoon UHF "Kung-Fu Theater" program only enhances the experience. It's also a stroke of genius/madness to have the stud action hero look and (with the English dubbing) sound like "Too Close for Comfort"'s Jm. J. Bullock.
While "Mad Foxes" is one of the best unintentionally humorous films ever made, it's not a safe, campy "bad" movie like "Plan 9 From Outer Space." It's unrated, but contains a lot of graphic violence and frontal nudity.
The DVD is bare bones, with the only extra being a trailer. However, I'm grateful someone had the audacity and insanity to put this out in the first place. Movies like this don't come along everyday, so grab this DVD before it disappears.
I wish I could say that I'm surprised...

Henry rollins was right
You should be allowed to sue people for time
There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.
