Before you give in to the negative reviews you've read about this film, read this: It's underrated!!
1 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

First off let me just say this in all honestly; forget the negative and overly harsh reviews you may have read about this. This movie as a comedic and low budget B Grade is without a doubt, underrated!! Yes it's camp, yes it's corny, yes it's a low budget film with unknown actors & certain moments that make little or no sense or could at least have been either edited better or had a few more takes taken but mark my words, if you can watch a movie and not take it too seriously and open yourself up for the potential for a fun and enjoyable time; this is the perfect B-movie! I honestly do not see it any other way and am personally rather shocked at the negativity this film has received so I had to add my thoughts to the internet in an attempt to help balance the scales a little. I rarely take my time to write reviews here but this is a great film but if you are expecting anything profound or monumental within this film, then keep on looking because you will not find it here. What you will find is an ultra light hearted, comedic, slapstick, funny, fun and a highly enjoyable and very cartoony low budget B-grade movie with mega corny yet timeless one liners, a great and unforgettable bunch of characters full of a steady dose of light hearted entertainment, a mostly fast paced progression of a fun yet clichéd story and action, comedic performances which consist of many which are highly quotable and funny for years to come and dare I say it again, FUN! Yes, this movie is without a doubt, fun. Honestly, for comparisons sake I love Police Academy I have the box set & this is just as good as the best of that, and in many ways better. Sit back back, relax and let yourself have a fun time. Check this movie out!!! P.S. For a bit of background if it helps add some weight in any way, some of my favourite movies are The Good The Bag & The Ugly, Scarface, Donnie Darko, The Matrix and True Romance.
