Trivia

Barry Bostwick was cast in the lead after the producers saw him on stage in The Pirates of Penzance in Los Angeles. Producer Albert S. Ruddy said he and the director had talked to one other actor earlier in the development stage, when the script was more serious. However then Ruddy "decided I didn't want to do another Dogs of War type movie. I wanted this to be more camp, more of a spoof, but still believable. Once we'd seen Barry we knew right away he was just right for the part." See more »

Goofs

A split-second before Hunter jumps his motorcycle over the SUV, Byrne-White and Zara are looking at Hunter's approach out the left window. The next shot shows the SUV parked between two boulders, left & right, as Hunter jumps over them. The boulder to the left should have blocked their view of Hunter's run. See more »

Quotes

Ace Hunter: Well, there are reasons for everything we do, Major.
Major Zara: And do they include leaving your guests to bake in the middle of the desert, greeted by a cowboy, and be attacked by wild creatures?
Ace Hunter: Well, if it's a comfortable tour you're looking for, I have connections... at DisneyLand!

Awesome and hilarious bad movie
1 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is my absolute favourite movie to watch to make fun of with friends.

Have you ever seen an MST3K film? This movie would make great fodder. The stunts are cheesy, including possibly the worst blue screen ever, the acting is bad, the plot is laughable ... everything is so bad that it flips into being awesome.

I highly recommend this movie if you are in the mood to laugh AT a movie, not WITH it. Watching it by yourself is not really recommended. I had to rate it highly, even though it's not actually a "good" movie because I do think people will enjoy watching it.
