Just a fair warning...
25 March 2004 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

This movie is, in a word, terrible. I enjoy a wide variety of movies, from the campy to the truly odd. This movie is neither, although from reading the hyped cover I thought it might be interesting. In fact, the material has potential but it was never acted on and, speaking of acting, there are some pretty bad moments of it present here. Lt. Lu - and his semi-intelligent narration - is the only thing going for the movie. It's too bad there was not either better acting and direction or an extreme lack of either so as to be comedically entertaining for the viewer. We have underdeveloped characters here who lend melodrama and inappropriateness to the whole misplaced amalgam. This piece is also very dated to the 80's. I rented this and was, sadly, unable to watch it beyond the half-way point. If you are looking for an awful but funny 80's disaster, this probably isn't your ticket.
