This is an absolutely awful "comedy" about an African dictator who steals an American space rocket. Various bumbling fools are dispatched to retrieve it. Oliver Reed mugs away embarrassingly in a career low performance (he probably figured that nobody would ever watch it)and is supported by Peter Cushing and Keenan Wynn in equally inept roles. Cushing has been quoted as saying that The Blood Beast Terror was his worst ever movie.... surely not as bad as this, Peter?
The actors have all done some poor movies, as well as some very good ones, but this is perhaps the worst of all. Its sense of humour is so infantile that even 7 year olds would be hard pushed to find any laughs, but it isn't suitable for 7 year olds anyway, as it features some needless full frontal female nudity. Why is there nudity in this film? I don't know. Why are there some good actors in this film? I don't know. Why did this film ever get made? I don't know and I don't care!
