FantasticFest is the largest genre film festival in the U.S., specializing in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and action movies from all around the world. Here's a list of some of our favorite movies at FantasticFest.
The dubbing is up to the usual asinine Silver Star standard (especially in the case of James Gaines, who utters his lines in very, very sad jive), scenes of people hanging out in discos (ogling at the compulsory stripper) and bowling alleys take forever and the "action", when it finally kicks in, is about as thrilling as Terms of Endearment.
That being said, Gallardo was a slightly more professional director than another Silver Star prodigy, Teddy Page. At the very least the film has a semi-coherent plot and doesn't look like it was shot and edited by a blind man.
The majority of the Silver Star All Stars are present. Romano Kristoff (giving a particularly silly performance as an Italian karate expert), James Gaines, Mike Monty who has hardly any lines and Ronnie Patterson showing up for a brief bit in the beginning. Richard Harrison looks as tired and disgusted as he did in all of his Filipino films.
The disco scenes recycle the wonderful music from the disco scenes in Fireback.
