It will rot your brain...in a good way
13 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's a movie with a character who's a former nuclear scientist turned pro-wrestler. If that tidbit doesn't warm the cockles of your heart, then I just don't understand you. Okay, so basically it is a home movie. But do your home movies include stock footage of a nuclear explosion? I can't really defend the movie except to say I enjoyed it. Add just a little more polish and a jot of professionalism and you might have something genuinely wretched (maybe something like Fred Olen Ray's more recent output), but there's a kind of "hey kids, let's put on a show" attitude here that works precisely because the movie's so impoverished. If the lighting were a little better, say good enough that I could actually tell what was going on in over half the scenes, I might even give this thing an 8.
