This may well be the weirdest movie ever made. It's so bizarre it borders on life-changing. The notorious Lieutenant Don brings together a crack squad of incredibly strange characters, including Jackie Chan, whose screen time amounts to about fifteen minutes. Together the eclectic warriors of the Fantasy Mission Force face everything from toilet-paper-throwing Amazon women (in 1945 China) to ghosts to evil warlocks, all leading up to a final showdown with an army of Nazis, aliens, samurai and Roman centurions riding on top of bulldozers and 1970's muscle cars. And don't get me started on the cameo by World War II Allied Major General Abraham Lincoln (yes, they say his name, and yes, it is Abraham Lincoln). No review could ever do Fantasy Mission Force justice. This movie would make my screenwriting professor break down in tears.
