Worst film ever seen
22 January 2001 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This film shown in England under the title of "Stuntmen Unlimited" about 1993 will live in my memory as quite possibly the worst film I have ever seen. A group of stuntmen are hired by American intelligence to steal the "world's most powerful rifle" from a sinister Latino type.

Quite apart from the absurdity of the plot line (why should the world's most powerful rifle worry a superpower in possession of infinitely more destructive weaponry)the film is memorable chiefly for an excellent cheesy party scene in which the villain and the heroes dance around to bad disco music.
