Trivia

Director Ulli Lommel was unsure about casting Klaus Kinski, but he met him and Kinski was very nice, according to Lommel. But when the filming started, Kinski was very hard to work with. He complained about the lights and microphones, so eventually they had only few soft lights and very small microphones in the Kinski scenes, which is the reason why the sound quality changes much in different shots. Kinski also didn't want to sit on a chair when camera crew was about to shoot from different angle, so continuity wasn't possible. Because of that Lommel decided to change Kinski's character to a ghost, which was a brilliant idea in Kinski's opinion. Later he was so happy with the director that he said he doesn't work in the future with anyone else than Lommel, but Lommel's answer was simply "Yeah, right". See more »

Raiders of the Cheap Costume Jewelery

Low budget knock offs of blockbuster films have been done for decades. They range from the awful to the better than they deserve to be. Lately, a great many of these have been made by the folks at The Asylum. Long before this, there were studios and filmmakers trying to cash in on the hits of the time. The hugely successful 'Indiana Jones' series has influenced, been ripped-off and also parodied through the years. One of the most oddest of the bunch is 'Revenge of the Stolen Stars.' Not a great film per se, but a must see for lovers of the unusual.

Pros: Cast is game. Fun score. Lush scenery. Nice cinematography. Decent production design. Humorous for the wrong reasons. Quick pace.

Cons: A few uneven performances. Some poor editing. Derivative. A lot of silly dialogue. Low budget really shows.

Final thoughts: Definitely one of those movies that'll make you go, "What did I just watch?" It's quite uneven and doesn't always make sense, but there's never a dull moment. Imagine a really low budget 'Indiana Jones' movie on acid. There are better examples of this of course, but this one still delivers some cheesy goods.

My rating: 3/5
