Quotes

Dallas: Well, I know how you feel, and I've been there myself. Let me see. One time before I made a jump into the night, an old buddy of mine told me something that made me feel a whole lot better.
Ace Hunter: What, what did he tell you to do?
Dallas: Well, he said, "You love 'em in blue and you love them in red. But most of all you love them in blue."
Ace Hunter: That's totally inapplicable to anything that's going on here. And it's _dumb_. Who told you that?
Dallas: You did!
Ace Hunter: But it's very wise. Very wise.

Comic Book Hollywood
29 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

Nothing wrong with comic book movies. Is there? This one is painfully funny if watched with the right attitude. Acting is camp, characters are cardboard camp, plot is Marvel Comics meets 007 camp... and on and on. Anyone who watches this movie and tries to evaluate it as anything but pure camp (Think TVs BATMAN from the 1960s) is in bad need of taste and IQ points. I don't like Hal Needhum films as a rule, but this one hits a popcorn eating mark. I rate this as a rare cult classic right up there with FEARLESS FRANK and XANADU. A real must be seen to be believed. Anyone who enjoys Monster Truck Pulls and exploding outhouses will marvel at the gadgets and tech in this one. Anyone who finds the art of jabbing at live badgers with a dull fork will also be amused. The character of Dallas is the only negative thing in my opinion. I'm a true Southerner...we'd stomp that rebel yell screaming idiot to death in the parking lot if we had to put up with him. Same actor who played Sonny in XANADU...we would've stomped him to death in that one too, roller blades and all. A 7 for pure camp value.
