up there as one of the finest B-Movies of all time (star wars in a petri dish)
29 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I must admit, it was until October 2004 that I actually got into watching B-movies. Say what you will, but when watched with friends, and a sack load of alcohol, films such as "Reactor", (War of the Robot, Guerra dei robot), can be absolutely hilarious. A friend of mine, namely Bob, a protégé of the all-knowing Shep, introduced me to a film called "The Intruder", in September of last year. I'm not sure was it the company, the strong beer, or the faint scent of German sausage in the air, but that film brought tears of joy and laughter to my eyes. Since that day, I have taken great pleasure in watching any B-Movie that comes my way. Although Rambu-The Intruder, has yet to be topped, "Reactor" is not without its charm. One of the funniest aspects of the film for me, was the English cover picture. It shows some sort of Star Wars-esquire Stormtrooper, who NEVER actually appears in the film!!! blend this with the hapless love story of Julie and John, mindless tales of a "translating device", sound effects and acting that boggle the mind, and a 20 minute space battle that insists space ships can only move in straight lines and at exactly the same speed, whilst resembling something being viewed under a microscope, AND a plot that forgets itself, (the once imminent Reactor explosion becomes long forgotten nostalgia) and you have REACTOR. A fun frolic for all the family. sure, your kids will say its crap. but tell them to shut up, call round your friends who have a sense of humour, get the beers and krabbenchips in, and enjoy the show.
