User Reviews

Not Saving Private Ryan, more like Saving Ryan's......
19 November 2001 | by (Huntington, NY) – See all my reviews

WAR! is another quickie exploitation film churned out by the Troma Team. Like all of Troma, the film is heavy on the bad taste (even comes with AIDS jokes) nudity, action, etc. etc. At the end of the film, all the film's heroes and heroines face the camera and cheer "America!" I guess this is so we don't boo and hiss the film too bad. I saw TROMA WAR's in the best possible enviorment for a Troma film, the old Times Square, in a run down theatre with a wall made up of tarp, along with a local lunatic who decided to sit in his seat in the lotus position and face the audience during the film. Now it's all Disney and Yuppie-Moneytraps on 42nd Street. Too Bad.
