Wonderfully Bad
11 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is so bad, it's good. After all it's not in every film that we are treated to female henchmen dressed in kinky boots and PVC. One of them seems to get a real thrill out of beating up the hero. Seriously though, when you pick up a movie like this, you do not expect Citizen Kane and you shouldn't try to judge it in that way. Electra is a low budget erotic sci-fi action thriller, and on that level it excels. Shannon Tweed is outstanding (well two bits of her) as always, and the two female henchmen are memorable.

It's just a shame we were never treated to the promised sequel. Why is this fine movie not available on DVD?
