Watch out....the Crappo Squad is here!
7 May 2002 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I thought that this movie seemed kind of cool when I first heard about it, but when I watched it, I was pretty disappointed.

I thought that Brian Thompson was going to go out there and do some good ol' fashioned ass-kicking, while hauling this chick alongside him. But instead he was just a prisoner getting tortured during the most of the movie, and even had to be saved by that little chick!(Kathy Shower)

I thought their "fake love-scene" was funny, and explosions are always funny, but this reminded me a bit too much of a long TV-episode of "the A-Team" or something like that.. lots of explosions, shooting, jumping around and making (un-funny) jokes... in fact, I would rather watch an episode of the A-team than watching this movie once more....

I think that Brian Thompson was much better in "Three Amigos!" and "Terminator", even though he didn't get as much playtime in those films. And Kathy Shower looks better on a poster than in an action-movie.

If you watch this movie and think it was robbed at Oscar-time, then you should probably get your head checked or something....

It would sweep all the awards at the raspberry awards, I think.

But the Crappo-Squad still was an okay "one-time-watching" experience, so just go see it anyways... but no more than two times... your brain could take serious damage of watching movies this bad! Well, now I'm exaggerating a bit perhaps...it would've been very good, if it had been a TV-series. But not as a full-length movie.

I would give it 4/10, and *½/****
