Laserblast occupies the absolute bottom rung of film. There is absolutely nothing to like, and I do mean Nothing. To call the acting sub-par would be a massive understatement and the plot would have been much stronger if it had been held together with shoestrings and chewing gum. I would never choose to watch this film for any reason if it wasn't being lampooned by MST3K. The MST3K version is absolutely hysterical though, so at least this poorly thought-out disaster of a film served some higher purpose. The best parts are where you can actually see members of the film crew and cameras, so much for editing I guess. This movie came out the year I was born and if I were the superstitious type I would consider it a bad omen. If you are given the choice between torture and seeing this film I would strongly recommend you at least consider the torture, the film is really that bad.
