The Best Movie... EVER!!!!!
13 January 2005 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

Now that I have your attention, let me just say that this film is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Yet, at the same time, I am compelled to watch it with friends.

OK, Lady Terminator is the story of the "South Sea Queen", who puts a curse on the grandchild of this guy who, I guess, gave her satisfying sex.

Oh, it gets better.

Then, 100 years later, an anthropologist (Constable) is turned into the Lady Terminator, an evil cyborg (why cyborg, I don't know) hell-bent on killing this girl who happens to be a rising Asian Pop star.

The film then rips off "Terminator" in several scenes and descends into total madness.

It should be mentioned that there are at least two versions of this film, because the VHS version is littered with repeated footage (specificly one part where the Lady Terminator is walking down a hall), whereas the DVD has more original footage.

There is one character in this film that makes the film what it is. The Character is named "Snake", a mullet clad cop(?) who rides a tank and says things like "eat it bitch!" I'm guessing that the actor is named Adam Stardust, and if he isn't, he really should be.

So, this film is a total mess that is great for a laugh. Anyone taking this film seriously will be VERY disappointed. Then again, anyone who would take the time to read the title should suspect that the film is either a bad action movie (correct) or porn (not correct).
